Praying for Others #Write31Days

wpid-wp-1445428735396.jpegWe are all called to pray.  Many of us pray those selfish prayers of God please help me and mine.  We pray those prayers of desperation during difficult times.  We pray those quick prayers when we offer in passing to pray for others.  It takes discipline to not cease praying for others.

It takes discipline to pray that someone else be filled with the knowledge of God’s will and give them wisdom and spiritual understanding.   Most of us fail to pray this for our self, let alone someone we have only heard about.

It takes discipline to pray that someone would walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.  We may strive to live a life worthy of the Lord.  How often do we think about other’s living a life pleasing to God?

It takes discipline to pray that someone else be strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy.  Strengthened with all might and joy according to God’s glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering.

It takes discipline to put the needs of others as a top priority in conversations with God.  This prayer was not a one time prayer – it was not ceased to be prayed since the write heard of the people.  How many of us pray that diligently?  Especially for people we have only heard about?2015Write31Days

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try to believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you.
