PRAYING FOR ONE ANOTHER

On many occasions, I have used our prayer line as a source of reference for these devotions.  I have repeatedly said on many occasions how blessed the prayer line has become in my own personal life.  Early in the morning, we turn our faces to God to give Him thanks and to acknowledge His goodness.  We have watched God answer prayers as we sought to pray for our brothers and sisters.  We have experienced the healing of the sick and watched in amazement as God has reconciled broken marriages.  We have been left in awe as God has comforted those in their time of grief as displayed in Colossians 1:11:

“We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy” Paul speaks about the strength that comes as we turn our hearts to God. Paul’s petition is for the Colossians to acknowledge God’s goodness. His desire is they would pray for each other so that God’s power might be made manifest in their lives. Paul wanted the people to have more patience and to endure long-suffering with joy.  This was Paul’s desire for the people. We need to pray for each other and encourage each other.  I am so glad somebody prayed for me and I have the opportunity to pray for someone else.  Before this life is over, we will all need someone to pray for us. Therefore, let us pray for one another.  One of the best gifts that can ever be given to us is to have someone pray for us.  I pray today that you are praying for others because someone is praying for you

Colossians 1:11 (NLT)
