40 Ways to Pray – those for You

Day 32 – Pray for those who are for You

I’m talking about your family, friends and neighbors.

I know that as I was growing up my mom and grandmother prayed for me.  I’m sure there were others, but those two I somehow understood that they were petitioning God for me.

In today’s world it is hard to find someone who will pray for you, and if you know someone who does – thank them.  Thank them so much that you in turn pray for them.

What would our country look like today if we took the time to pray for those we know and love on a daily basis.  Not just ask God to watch over them and bless them, but ask Him to reveal things you need to do and say for them.  That’s where the blessings of prayer are realized.

So how do you know who prays for you?  How do you know who is for you – who supports you?  It should be pretty easy to see the power of the Holy Spirit on those who pray for you.  They also have an understanding of where you are and have patience with you no matter where that might be.

My Prayer for Today

God I am so thankful for my family and friends that love me and pray for me.  Help me not to take them for granted and lift them up to you in prayer each day as well.  In the name of Jesus I pray.
