PRAY FOR OTHERS
MAIN TEXT:”James 5:16
Confess your sins one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed.The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
“And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends:also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.”Job 42:10
Jesus never intended for us to live the Christian life alone. For this reason He demanded that we should lift one another up by praying for others. Praying for one another should be our first action, not the last resort.There’s a point in life where we struggle to stand. At that point, it’s only the prayers from other people that can help to carry the weight of our troubles with ease. When we pray for others, it brings us closer and strengthens our relationship with God.
The spiritual blessings of praying forothers cannot be over emphasised.When we pray for others, we are bold and our love for God increases. It increases our spiritualgrowth and we become more like Jesus(Philippians1:1-9).Praying for others is an unselfish expression of love which reflects God’s Character.
Beloved, determine today to reflect God’s Character when you pray for others, so that your own burdens will also be lifted as seen in the case of Job in our today’s lesson.
REMEMBER, SOMEONE’S FREEDOM DEPENDS ON YOUR PRAYERS TODAY!
