PRAY FOR THEM
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Ephesians 6:18 NIV
It is easy to judge other people because we don't understand their situations. There are some people who look sad everyday; and we may jump to judge them without having any idea what they are going through in life.
There is a tendency of Christians to false encourage their fellow brethren that they are praying for them but in the reality they don't do that. Sometimes we seek to understand what other people are going through not because we want to carry their burdens in prayers; but only to get something to gossip.
We need to pray for each other, we need to have the hearts of encouraging each other. Apostle John says, "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth, 1 John 3:18."Our love should be genuine and we need to show it by our actions and attitude towards others.
This morning, I want to encourage you to pray for people who God has given you in your life. I believe there are people who are in your life and they mean a world to you. These are people who are in the circle of influence. Maybe some of these people know the Lord and some they don't know the Lord. We are called to pray for all of them that they may one day inherit the kingdom of God.
Pray for their perfect health, pray for their sound mind and that they may obey the Lord in their lives. Pray that they may walk right before the Lord and that they may learn to treat all people in their lives equally. Pray that the will of God may be fulfilled in their lives and that they may walk in the purpose of the Lord.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for all people who You have given me. Lord I'm asking that You may give them perfect health and provide for all of their needs according to your riches of your glory in Christ Jesus. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
