Praying For God?s Servants The Bible Says Pray for others

Recommended Posts

My dear friends now my next post is about you and me praying for others, lets see about Epaphras,Epaphras was an elder in the Church at Colosse. He must have also been asked to oversee the fellowship of believers at Hierapolis, and Laodicaea. He was in authority but he was also taking responsibility ? responsibility to pray for the believers in these Churches. And that too continually to the point that he was commended by Paul as one who had been ?wrestling? in prayer for those who were under his care. Paul often instructs about the importance of praying for others. Epaphras prayed for others. Paul prayed for others. In Philippians 1:3, 4 he writes how he prayed for those who have been gained for Christ through his ministry. Os Hillman writes, ?It is interesting what happens when you offer to pray for someone. Offering to pray for someone can be the most genuine and loving thing you can do for another person.? God said, ?Love one another.? There is no greater thing to show genuine love than to pray for those whom we love. Hillman further suggests, ?As you enter the workplace today, ask a coworker if you can pray for him about something. You may be surprised at what doors will open as a result.?Now its time for us to think ,how many times have we been praying very selfish prayers? Jesus is the greatest Intercessor, and He continues to pray to the Father on our behalf. Let us take the cue from Him and start praying unselfish prayers ? that is praying for others rather than for our own interests. We must know that when we start praying for others, such as the destitute and the orphans, God?s compassion gets kindled and the results are really great. Even today God gets moved by true intercession.Finally Let us be true intercessors....
