Pray for Others

Ephesians 6 18 CEV

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 6:18 CEV

Never stop praying, especially for others. Always pray by the power of the Spirit. Stay alert and keep praying for God’s people.

 

I cannot emphasize how important it is to pray for one another. In an age where everything is put on social media we may think we know what’s going on in each other’s lives but almost everyone we know keeps the things that hurt them most hidden from their friends and family.  People may push us away or refuse to hear God’s message and we may not know exactly what their needs are but God does. We can pray for overall healing, protection, salvation and for God’s will to be done in the lives of our loved ones. If God puts someone in your thoughts make sure you pray for them, you never know what they may be going through.

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.
