Pray For Others

Love will repay cursing with blessing, hate with good will, evil treatment and persecution with prayers. While on the cross Jesus prayed for his enemies; he was clear about his desire and command that we too should pray for others. What greater display of love for your neighbor and brother is there than to bow and pray for him? Please the Lord; pray for others.

But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. Matthew 5:44  

But I say to you who are listening, love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who are cruel to you. Luke 6:27-28

I always remember you in my prayers, asking the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, to give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation so that you will know him better. I pray also that you will have greater understanding in your heart so you will know the hope to which he has called us and that you will know how rich and glorious are the blessings God has promised his holy people. Ephesians 1:16-18

I thank my God every time I remember you, always praying with joy for all of you. Philippians 1:3-4 

Brothers and sisters, pray for us. 1 Thessalonians 5:25

About admin

I am a depraved, morally bankrupt wretched sinner through and through. I’ve attended church sporadically most of my life, haven’t spent a minute in seminary and only recently gave the Bible more than a cursory review. I’ve attended exactly one theology class and I dropped out of that. However, in spite of my moral infidelity, I’ve come to be filled with the Holy Spirit. I’ve learned my salvation isn’t the result of what I do, but rather what Jesus has done on my behalf. I didn’t find the Holy Spirit, He found me. And in our relationship I have invited Him to change me, to use me for His purpose, to conquer my will with His own. Praise the Lord, for even an unworthy, chronic sinner like me can experience and give testimony to His glory!
