Praying for other people
There is power in praying for other people; but sometimes it feels tricky to know how to regularly communicate the needs of others to God.
Be confident: When we pray for others, we’re praying to a God who longs to hear and respond to our prayers, so we can begin praying with confidence that our prayers are important to God.
Be specific: What is it that you want God to do in the situation, or for the person? The Lord’s prayer contains active and specific requests: “Give us… our daily bread” “Forgive us… our debts” “Lead us… not into temptation”
Be expectant: The God who made and created us also made and created the people we are praying for. God loves our friends, family and community more than we do, so be expectant!
Be persistent: Sometimes we need to ask and keep asking (Matt 7:7), especially when those that we know and love are going through something challenging or tough. Keep persevering in prayer for others.
This is another of our Prayer and Fasting months and you are invited to join with us and we engage in earnest prayer for the people of our community.
As well as continuing prayer and fasting throughout the month the events shown below will continue to be part of our programme in addition to our Sunday morning services.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
