Somebody’s Prayin’ For You

Friday evening I had the privilege of attending a cottage prayer meeting at a local Church not too far from home.  I really enjoy these kind of meetings.  No, it does not have to do with the menu either just so you know.

The ladies stay in the fellowship hall and pray as this keeps them close to the kitchen and it ensures there is food fit to eat for the meal afterwards.  As I was kneeling at the altar I listened and heard the Pastor of this Church calling my name and the name of my wife and our son.  Well, you know what happened next.  Tears began to flow like rivers.  Then, I began to hear another Pastor friend who was there also begin calling our names in prayer too.  I could hardly contain myself and truthfully maybe I should have not kept it in.

What a peace swept over my at that moment.  Wow!  It was like my Father put His arms around me and whispered to me that everything was going to be alright.  It would not be pleasant; but, alright.  In other words we would make it through these dark days.  Thank You my Father!

When you are prompted to pray for someone I hope you do it right then.  You never know what their need is at that moment and you could be the avenue that God uses to speak a prayer that gets answered.  Glory to His name!

So, how are you doing?

Hebrews 7:25, “Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.”

My wife related an event that happened to her a couple weeks ago.  She shared that one of her friends had the appearance of bearing a heavy load.  When my wife inquired she told my wife that she just needed her to pray for her and her family.  My wife told me that she looked around and noticed nobody was near so they prayed right there.  This blessed my heart!  As soon as they finished life had gone on.  God’s timing is perfect timing.

Prayer is so important.  Yet, so many people who say they are Christians do not even pray.  I cannot remember the exact statistic about how much time the average Pastor spends in prayer, including meals; but, it is pathetic.  Fifteen minutes a day seems to stick in my mind; but, I think that is too much.

Prayer is such an awesome activity.  We have the opportunity to march right into the throne room of the King of all kings and LORD of all lords and tell Him our needs.  This is a privilege that you will find nowhere else that is for sure.

I thank God for the privilege of prayer, for the power of prayer, the Person of prayer, the possibilities of prayer, and the place of prayer.

So, how are you doing?

Luke 18:1, “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;”
