“Pray for one another”

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

James 5:16

Intercessory prayer is the act of praying on behalf of others. Too often when we pray, we neglect to pray for others. We’re supposed to pray for the sick, family, friends, those in authority, ministers, the misled, enemies, the broken-hearted, the grieving, those who persecute us, our country etc.Β 

In Acts 12:5, the church interceded and prayed for Peter when he was kept in prison. In Colossians 4:2-3, Paul urged the Colossians to pray for him. Daniel 9 is a beautiful model of intercessory prayer in which he prayed for his people.

Prayer is our communication with our Father and prayer moves Him. It brings Him to our rescue.Β 

This reminder was written to remind you that you need to take time to pray not only for yourselves but for others. God bless.

      1. Same. When I started praying, I just used to pray in whatever order ‘things’ came to me. After learning that ‘I’ should be last, I start off by praying for others first making it all the way down to ‘I’.

  1. This post is really important. I tend to pray a lot for myself, unless someone asks that I pray for them, but I’ve been trying to break that habit, praying for not only people I know, but for the world and its many problems. Thank you Diana for mentioning this πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, it definitely lifts the mood and I agree that it should be instant that we’re reminded to pray for one another. Most welcome. God bless.
