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
Take time to pray for your family, friends, co-workers and neighbors. Pray for your pastor and your church. Pray for our leaders and people in authority and while you’re at it, pray for your enemies as well. Pray that God would protect them and keep them from any evil the enemy has planned. Pray for God to bless and provide for them knowing that all good things come our Heavenly Father. Humbly come before the Lord with your specific prayers asking God for His will to be done as you intercede for others. Whether your prayers our general or specific, thank God for hearing your prayer, for His love and mercy for all people. We don’t always know what people are going through but one thing is for sure, they can always use our prayers and not one prayer is ever wasted.
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.
