Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Praying for Others

1 Timothy 2:1 (NLT)
   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.

Father in this short verse you have given us the passion, priority, purpose and perimeter of our most effective ministry, prayer. You have given us the wonderful privilege of participating with you in the lives of others through our prayers for them. Help us to consider once again how much can be accomplished as we pray about the needs of others, speaking on their behalf and being grateful for them.

You tell us Father to: “…. come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”  Hebrews 4:16 (NLT)  Father we understand this verse is not just for us but also for those we pray for. Thank you Father that prayer is big enough to embrace the whole world and small enough to touch each heart. Help us to be faithful in this unique opportunity of praying for others.
