Someone is Praying for You

Bible Verse: Luke 22: 31,32

And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

Someone is praying for you

It was one of those days when nothing seemed to make sense. Overwhelmed and stressed out, my emotions were in a downward spiral. The sun wasn’t shining and the overcast weather fit my mood perfectly. However, at the end of this very discouraging day, I received a message from a friend simply telling me that they were praying for me. Suddenly, my soul
lifted and things did not seem so hopeless anymore.

Praying for one another and lifting each other up before the Lord is one of the great privileges of being a Christian.

Prayer changes things. There is nothing sweeter than when someone speaks the Word on our behalf, agrees with us in prayer, and adds the power of their petition to ours. When we continually stand in the gap for our friends and loved ones, doors open, there is healing, strongholds are cast down, and joy is restored.

Jesus daily intercedes on our behalf. As He did for Peter, He brings us before God in prayer asking that we be strengthened to handle the attacks of the enemy. Let’s continue to do the same for one another. When God’s people pray for each other, wonderful things happen. Always remember that someone is praying for you.
