Besides those things that are without, there is that which presseth upon me daily, anxiety for all the churches. 2 Corinthians 11.28. 

If one or more of the believers are truly humble before the Lord and fear Him, what should they do when they discover problems among His children? They should learn to do one thing: to bear the children of the Lord on their shoulders and carry them in their bosoms as they go to inquire of the Father (cf. Ex. 28). Just as Paul did, who bore on his shoulders all the saints of God and carried in his bosom all the churches of God.  

We need to understand how Paul could write so clearly to the churches on the ways of God. None of his letters was written out of some words which suddenly came to him when he prayed casually for the churches. Paul did not write in such a careless way. We must understand and practice this principle of carrying the saints of the Lord to God’s presence. We do not know for how many days or weeks Paul might have carried the children of God on his heart as he would look to the Father. But then, one day he saw something in God’s light; and with that light he would sit down and write a letter.
