Praying for Others

James 5:13, Luke 18:1, Colossians 1:3-9

It is always a blessing to pray for others in their time of need.  The Apostle Paul reminds those to whom he was writing that he remembered to pray for their needs, spiritual growth, and thanked God that he could be a part of their life.,

When we pray for others it reflects a heart of concern and personal involvement along with the faith that God hears and answers prayer.  Just to know that one has friends that trust God and are willing to invest time in prayer brings joy to people in need.  We must we careful not to become so engrossed in our own needs and challenges that we ignore those who are also in need.  Take note today of those people that God brings into your path that need the encouragement of your personal concern and willingness to pray with and for them.
