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 Samuel 12:23 (ESV)
     ”Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by ceasing to pray for you.”

Father, Samuel’s great example and commitment to you and the people of Israel is his faithful and prayerful intercession for them. And we are reminded of Paul’s admonition to the Church: “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people,” 1 Timothy 2:1 (ESV)

Father you have not ask us to be eloquent, extravagant or wordy in our prayers but rather 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, not only do we pray for mercy and grace for ourselves but especially for those we love and care for. Thank you for the astonishing privilege to come into your very presence seeking your guidance, and your will for them. Thank you that we can participate in the great spiritual moments and events of their lives through our prayers for them.

Father in our prayers for them may we ever be reminded: “The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”  James 5:16 (ESV)

Thank you Father, in the name of Jesus, for the privilege and power of intercessory prayer. Amen.
