CO-WORKERS

Co- Workers & Acquaintance Loving Arms Guide

 

  1. Don’t give advice or share your story, just listen. Hug them and tell them you’re praying for them (and do pray for them!)
  2. Pray for them independently
  3. Give them privacy and space, but do call and check on them and let them know you’re thinking of them and ask if they need anything. (keep call brief unless they want to talk about it)
  4. It’s okay to say:
    1. “I’m praying for you and here for you if you would like to talk”
    2. (if you have been through losing a baby personally, wait 2 to 3 weeks to tell them) Don’t share your full story unless they ask, keep it brief such as:

“I’ve had a miscarriage myself and I know it hurts, I’m here for you if you ever want to talk. I’m praying for you”
