PRAYING FOR OTHERS

Billy Graham once said, “Prayer is not the least you can do
for someone, it is the most you can do for someone.”


  • A RIGHTEOUS PERSON'S PRAYERS WILL BE POWERFUL & EFFECTIVE (JAMES 5:16b) (OUR HEART MUST BE RIGHT WITH GOD CONCERNING THE PERSON / PEOPLE WE ARE PRAYING FOR IN ORDER TO BE POWERFUL & EFFECTIVE)

  • GOD WILL NOT HONOR OR BLESS A SELFISH LIFESTYLE

- "DO NOTHING OUT OF SELFISH AMBITION OR VAIN CONCEIT, BUT IN
    HUMILITY CONSIDER OTHERS BETTER THAN YOURSELVES. EACH OF       
   YOU SHOULD LOOK NOT ONLY TO YOUR INTERESTS, BUT ALSO TO THE
   INTERESTS OF OTHERS."                             
- PHILIPPIANS 2:3-4

           -
I SAMUEL 12:23   (IS IT A SIN TO NOT PRAY FOR OTHERS ?)

  • IT IS GOD'S WILL FOR US NOT ONLY TO PRAY FOR OTHERS, BUT TO HELP OTHERS WITH THEIR BURDENS AND NEEDS AS WELL:

- "CARRY EACH OTHER'S BURDENS, AND IN THIS WAY YOU WILL  FULFILL
    THE LAW OF CHRIST."                               
- GALATIANS 6:2

- " ... ALWAYS KEEP ON PRAYING FOR THE SAINTS."                             
                                                                           
- EPHESIANS 6:18

  • ASK THE LORD TO DIRECT YOU TO SOMEONE THAT NEEDS YOUR HELP; HE WILL DO IT. (THERE IS JOY IN SERVING OTHERS)       

  • DON'T SIMPLY PRAY FOR SOMEONE; ASK GOD WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR THAT PERSON, AND WHAT HE WOULD HAVE YOU TO DO.

  • PRAYING FOR OTHERS / WHO TO PRAY FOR ?:
