Prayer Is For Others


If you’ve been following the podcast for a while, you might have noticed that we’ve been talking a lot about what prayer means to you, how it effects you, and how it connects you to God. But prayer is also for others. In fact, when the saints pray for one another there are few things so pleasing to God.


One of the things that surprised me when I became a father—not for the first time, but for the second time—was the joy of watching my kids love one another. The delight they took in each other and the care they showed for one another was something I hadn’t expected. Sometimes my son would get something from me—like a piece of candy—and then without any prompting would ask if he could have one for his sister, as well. He wanted her to have what he was having. She does the same for him.


I can’t but imagine that God feels the same way about us when we bring our prayers to him in behalf of one of our fellow saints. Surely he hears us.


Pray with me. Father, thank you that you make us a community of saints rather than just a collection of individuals. Thank you that you give us brothers and sisters in Christ! We pray that you would bless them today with the joy of your presence. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer Is Reminding God

It’s an odd thing to say that prayer is reminding God. It’s odd because—well, doesn’t God know all things? How could we remind him of anything? If you didn’t know, God’s primary way of relating to his
