Intercession

1 Timothy 2 1

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Timothy 2:1

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people

 

Intercession is prayer said on behalf of and for other people.  God wants all people to be saved so we should be praying for everyone we know and even those we don’t know.  We can pray for their needs, their health and most importantly, for their salvation.  When we pray for others God’s love works through us. The greatest gift you can give someone is to pray for them.

Love the Unlovable

Luke 6 32.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 6:32

If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.

 

It’s easy to love someone who loves you and is good to you.  The challenge then is to love the unlovable and those who have been forgotten by society.  Start seeing them the way God sees them, love them, do good for them and pray for them.

Be an Encourager 

1 Thessalonians 5 11

 

Verse of the Day: 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

 

We may not be able to solve everyone’s problems but we sure can be an encouragement to everyone by spreading hope. Share the love of God, pray with each other and for each other. Use your words to build each other up not tear each other down. Be a friend and a blessing to those in need (we are all in need).

2 Thessalonians 1 3.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: 2 Thessalonians 1:3      

We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing.   

 

I am thankful for the love of family and friends.  I’m grateful to have such wonderful people as part of my journey. Each person God has put in my life adds something unique and special to it and I love and appreciate them all.  I’m thankful for the love we share between us, for the experiences we go through together and for the memories that will be in my heart forever. As I thank God for you I pray that He would continue to bless and protect you always.

Pray for All People

1 Timothy 2 1 (2).jpg

 

Verse of the Day: 1 Timothy 2:1

I urge you first of all, to pray for all people.  Ask God to help them, intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.

 

Take time to pray for your family, your friends, your co-workers, your neighbors and while you’re at it, pray for your enemies as well.  We don’t always know what they are going through but one thing is for sure, they can always use our prayers.

Pray for Others

Ephesians 3 16-18.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:        Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.

 

Like Paul prayed for the believers in Ephesus, we need to pray for our friends and family, our enemies, and the world.  We need to pray that they would invite Jesus into their lives so they may experience His infinite love first hand and have a personal relationship with Him.  We also need to pray that they would come to truly know Him, His grace, glory and how much He really loves them.
