Many people regard the following words as cliché: “I will pray for you.” Some people see praying as cowardly actions because they think only brave people would face their problems on their own.
Praying isn’t a religious jargon. Prayers aren’t meant for the weaklings. Praying for someone is an expression of care and affection. When we pray for someone, we acknowledge God is in charge of everything and only He alone can take best care of them. Let’s ponder the prayer of Paul for the Philippian believers.
9I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. 10For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. 11May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God. (Philippians 1:9–11 NLT)
Let’s pose a question to God. “Could You teach me how to pray for the people around me?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Go ask your family members for prayer requests that you can pray for them.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Share your praying experience with a small group member.
