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!
