Character Building

Praying for Others

Hey, gorgeous! Over here at Modestly, we not only focus on dressing well, we also focus on improving our character. Let’s take some time to reflect on the type of women we are becoming because modesty is more than fashion.

Let’s start by asking one simple question:

Am I praying for others, or do I wait for people to tell me their problems before setting time aside to pray for them?

Remember if you have accepted Jesus Christ has your personal Lord and Saviour you have the Holy Spirit and because of him you don’t need people to specifically tell you their problems – the Holy Spirit will lead you in the place of prayer.

The truth is there is always a person or world issue we need to pray about. A family member or work colleague that hasn’t known Jesus Christ – that requires prayer. A next door neighbour that needs healing or deliverance – that requires prayer. There is always something that requires prayer.

Look to the Lord and his strength;
    seek his face always

1 Chronicles 16:11

When we pray many things happen. The Bible tells us, “The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results” (James 5:16). When we pray in faith and in the name of Jesus, something always happens.

Check this out – how we pray for others is far less important; that we prayed is most important! 

Several people will testify to the fact that through their prayers, GOD has changed lives, saved lives, moved mountains, got them through tough times, and so much more.

Here are 2 reasons to pray for a neighbour, friend or even colleague today.

Jesus prayed for others.  

Jesus didn’t just tell His disciples to pray for others, he modeled it as well.  In front of them, Jesus prayed, “I pray not only for these, but also for those who believe in Me through their message.  May they all be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I am in You.  May they also be one in Us, so the world may believe You sent Me” (John 17:20-21).  If Jesus Christ, the Savior of the whole world prayed for you and me, shouldn’t we do the same for others?

Prayer transforms others

Praying for others changes the course of their life. They may not even know why, but it’s true. Our prayers can give others courage, influence their decisions, and change their outcomes.

God is eagerly awaiting your prayers for others! 

Who will you start praying for today ?

Shalom,

Iysi
