“I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.” 1 Timothy 2:1 NLT
The importance of praying for others can't be overstated. They may need God's intervention, His deliverance, His help, or simply a greater sense of His presence in their lives.
However, there is another benefit in praying for others: it takes our thoughts off ourselves and our circumstances and places our focus on others.
Look at those around you today, recognize first and foremost their need for God. Ask the Lord to step into their lives and meet their needs.
As you walk through today with an attitude of intercession you will be surprised at how many people truly have a need for God and how your circumstances aren't nearly as overwhelming as you first thought.
“But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit,” Jude 1:20 NLT
