Praying for Others
Why does God want us to pray for others? God is Sovereign, He is Omnipotent, He can do whatever is needed and doesn’t need our help. So, why does He want us to prayer for others?
God wants us to be involved in others’ lives. When we are available to be used by God, He will put a burden on hearts to pray for others. He wants to give us a blessing of being used by Him. When we pray for others, we are helping carry their burdens.
We are part of Christ’s family here on earth and God wants us to help carry each other’s burden. I have two close Christian’s brothers that pray for me and have prayed for my family often. I can count on my brothers in Christ, to pray for me and my family. I cherish their prayers and I know God has answered their prayers. God has used them to be a blessing to me.
So, I encourage you to pray for others. Be available for God to be used. It will not only bless that other person you are praying for but will be blessing to you.
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.
