Praying for Others

Praying for Others

I try to start most of my days in the Scriptures and praying.  I don’t hit every day but it’s a habit I feel is worth working on. I use a journal because it helps me to focus and I like to write out my prayers.  Reading, studying and meditating on Scripture is a rich time for me personally.  However, I also like to pray for others, but sometimes I’m not always sure what to pray for.

So, I decided, “why not pray for them what the Scriptures are teaching me.”  For instance, this morning I read Psalm 28 and wrote out verses 8-9 in my journal,IMG_20140328_100116_803

“The Lord is the strength of his people;
He is the saving refuge of His anointed.
Oh, save your people and bless your heritage!
Be their shepherd and carry them forever.”

I just turn this Scripture into a prayer for others, that the Lord would be their strength today, that they would be blessed and that Jesus, our Shepherd would carry them.  This is a simple and yet profound way to pray for people because it uses God’s Word, not just my own. Give it a try. You really can’t go wrong, and people will be blessed and strengthened as God answers your prayers, which by the way, He loves to do!


All for Jesus,
