Who’s Praying?

Who’s Praying?

by Brenda Wood

Prayer requests

Every now and again, I am shocked to spot my name on the prayer list of the writing group I belong to. Why ever do they pray for me? Just because they can, that’s why. They pray regularly for every member.

That begs the question…do we really know who is praying for us? (click to tweet)

No, we do not. Somewhere, perhaps across the ocean, in another country, or even in the home of someone you consider to be an enemy, someone, led by the Holy Spirit, is praying for you.

So then when God brings even a difficult person to mind, can we do any less?

When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer for that person (Luke 6:27, MSG). (click to tweet)

Prayer:

Lord, as you direct us in prayer today, we will listen and obey. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
