Pray for Others I bless others through prayer.
Tuesday, October 7, 2014
Praying for another is like giving an anonymous gift. I imagine the individual receiving the ideas, direction, and answers they need. When I pray for someone’s health, I envision them vibrant and energized, healed and whole. As I pray for friends and family, I see them receiving exactly what they need at exactly the time they need it. If I affirm a specific outcome, I always add “this or something better.”
Part of my prayer activity is to also let go. If I pray for someone’s well-being but continue to worry, I am demonstrating doubt rather than faith. Instead, I pray with confidence that God is already making known what needs to be known and providing the right and perfect answers to everyone’s needs.
Pray for one another, so that you may be healed.—James 5:16
