The Truth for Today
“Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” – James 5:16 (NLT)
Thought for Today
May we accept our responsibility of praying for our family and friends by getting down to the real business of praying for them. Have you ever stopped to think about why we pray for others? I guess, at the most basic level, we pray for our family and friends because we love them. We desire God to break into their lives and surprise them with His presence. We desire them to have spiritual growth by the Holy Spirit. We want them to experience healing, wholeness, blessing, and so many other aspects of the goodness of Jesus. Let’s prayer for our family and friends today.
Prayer for Today
Lord, break into the lives of my family and friends. Would you surprise them with the reality of your presence today? Jesus, I pray that my family and friends would know you and the power of your saving grace. Amen.
