Devotion: Pray for others

12

Job 42:10 “And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.”

The restoration of Job came as a result of praying for his friends. As he showed compassion for others, God showed Compassion to him. He had problems yes but he still remembered to pray for others. He wasn’t selfish as some Christians are. If we look at your prayer list about what God should do in this year, is there anything for others?

You have a role in your family, community, nation or the whole world in which you are living. There are billions of souls going to hell. There are Christians persecuted everyday in different nations. The World is going towards secularism in antincipation of the coming of Anti Christ.

bibleWars in different nations. Poverty and other sufferings. We cant blame God. He has already done something by sending Jesus to save the world but now he needs someone to intercede for God to intervene in the affairs of Men. Choose to be that Intercessor.

In Eze 22:30 God says “I sought for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I would not destroy it; but I found no one.” There are very few people that are really concerned about others. Most of the people pray for themselves and their immediate family. Very few people can fast for others. Very few can go to the mountain to pray for others. You can choose to be among the very few ones. Let your prayer list be full of others and less of you. Remember Job, His problems were dealt with when he prayed for others not for himself.

Paul says in 1Timothy 2:1 “I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and givings of thanks, be made for all people.” All people is not equal to your family only or yourself only. Learn to go beyond your current location and learn to change things in different nations.
Know that your prayer works even if it doesnt look so. Dont look for physical signs, walk by faith. Jas 5:16 “ The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

  1. I would say help each other, we shouldn’t wait for westerners to feel sorry for our brothers and sisters when some us has too much for our families. Everyone can pray for anyone but how many can give to poor people, we luck compassion and love in our society.
