“I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word.” – John 17:20
Prayer saturated the life of Jesus. In this, His high-priestly prayer, one of the groups He prays for is you and me. No, you did not misread that last sentence. Jesus is praying for you (Hebrews 7:25)! Therefore, one of the greatest things you can ever tell another person are these words: “I am praying for you.” Joining with Christ, we can have significant, spiritual influence over others by simply praying for them. You might be saying, “No way.” But as we say all the time at Hope Church, “God in His sovereignty has chosen to limit His activity to the prayers of His people.” He has chosen to work this way. Will you join Him?
As you think about your circle of influence, who are you praying for on a consistent basis?
