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