“We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers” (1 Thessalonians 1:2 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible).
Praying for friends and their needs will enhance your prayer time. The writer of our devotional verse begins his prayer with thanksgiving first of all to God. And then He mentioned those he prayed for by name. When we limit our prayer time to just ourselves, we miss so much by not bringing our friends and their needs to God who hears and answers those requests. He is touched by the feelings of our infirmity. The things that bother us He desires to heal; whether it’s for you or those you love. I can testify that others have prayed for me and God intervened even before the need was made known to them.
Prayer: Prayer is wonderful! Just to know someone is praying for me on a daily basis is more valuable than money. Thank You, Lord, for those who consistently pray for me by name.
