Spiritual encouragement for godly ladies.
Interceding for Others
Women are known to be prayer warriors. Sometimes this perception is not always true though. As the New Year begins, I would like to challenge each of you to become a real prayer warrior. Not just for yourself and your family, but consider the needs of others.
Praying for others can sometimes make your needs seem so small and insignificant. Just this past Sunday one of our senior adults ask me to pray that they would find their hearing-aid they had lost. The cost of the hearing aid was $3,200. I was so burdened for this devoted saint of God. I began praying that very evening and several times the next morning. About 10:15 am on Monday morning, my phone rang and it was a blessing to hear that the costly hearing-aid had been found. I realize I was not the only person praying, but God did answer an urgent prayer request because of the prayers of God’s people. Galatians 6:2 says, “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
Someday, you will be on the other side of those prayers. The Bible promises us in II Timothy 3:12, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” The day is coming when you will suffer problems and tribulation, and you will need the prayers of others. It is my prayer you will be found faithful in the coming year to pray for others and their needs.
