Fellow Christians Pray for One Another!

Prayer for OthersIt may come in a letter… or perhaps a phone call… it might appear in a Facebook post or on a Twitter feed… a chance encounter… or the report of a friend…

THE URGENT PRAYER REQUEST of a spiritual leader, a missionary, a persecuted Christian, a friend or family member!

What will be our response… Will we faithfully lift their need to the Lord in prayer (or simply have good intentions, but forget)? They’re depending on us – more than that they’re depending on the Lord who answers prayer!

Here’s how Apostle Paul phrased it to fellow Christians in Rome…

“Dear brothers and sisters, I urge you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ… join in my struggle by praying to God for me. Do this because of your love for me, given you by the Holy Spirit!” (Romans 15:30 NLT)

This is what I do on my daily prayer runs – I pray for those in need, those who have requested that I pray, those whose needs I am aware of. My wife, Sharon, keeps a list in her Bible – and every day during her devotions she is praying! Will you pray? “Dear brothers and sister, I urge you…join in my struggle by praying… Do this because of your love given you by the Holy Spirit.” Listen, fellow Christians pray for one another!
