I Will Pray For You

The title of this hub are words I hear quite often coming out of the mouths of people. The words are used by people that have never even read any of the Bible. I wonder how many of the people who say these words actually pray for me.

Prayer is powerful! God does listen to all prayer. Why would we take it so lightly?

I am firm that the only thing that I really have in life is my word and promises. I don't take that lightly. When I tell a person I will pray for them, I do it right then and there.

President Obama cancelled the National Day of Prayer. Do we really need one? Are we not supposed to pray without ceasing?

I know that many of us just say the words to comfort other humans, but the real comfort comes from God and He desires our prayers.

I ask all of you, please consider your words before you speak them. If you know that you really won't pray for that person, please don't tell them you will.

Below are scripture on prayer. Read them and understand the power of prayer.

Below them is a new song that is out for a bit of comedy in this hub.

Remember that when you pray, you are speaking with the Most Reverent Father and treat your prayer accordingly. I wish you all the best and I just prayed for you!

Prayer From God's Word

Acts 1:14: These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.

James 5:15: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

1 Timothy 4:5: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

Romans 12:12: Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;

Philippians 4:6: Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Matthew 21:22: And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Proverbs 15:29: The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.

1 Peter 3:12: For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

1 Timothy 2:8: I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

I try to pray immediately and do for the most part, froggy. I've found that I do pray alot for certain circumstances that I've not said I would, say, for the miners recently in West Virginia. That so hurts, and I can't imagine what they went through.

Prayer is so very personal, I'm sure you agree.

Great hub, thanks.

If I tell someone I will pray for them, I do it! Offering prayer gives solace, and what solace can be found in a broken promise? God hears our promises, and he knows if we keep them...........

Prayer is a very personal thing, and it can take on many forms..........

Romans 12:12: Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; this verse defines my vision of prayer..........

Thank you,

Kaie

Very nice hub Forggy. You are so right about prayer and people do not always take it seriously. I have been taught from childhood that prayer is "a heart to heart talk with God". I wrote a hub on prayer also. I entitled it "Please God, Please?" I talk to God in my thoughts daily as I go about my routine, but when I tell someone they are in my prayers, I do pray for them specifically as well as in my thoughts. Prayer brings us closer to God.

I pray now everyday, multiple times a day, I beg the Father to listen, I ask him to please hear my voice.
