Recently I said to someone, “If I had spent as much time praying as I have reading books, I would be much further along.”
I believe that to be true.
Those who have a gift of prayer, to intercede before God on behalf of another.
Could there be any more selfless act?
For someone to go to the maker of the universe and mention someone else by name is beyond my ability to comprehend.
Yet there are those who are called to do just that.
I keep deleting and backspacing my words because I feel like my limited vocabulary is not adequate to communicate the importance of this subject.
Then I just sit here and look at the computer screen because I remember a woman walking up to me and asking my name and then saying, “I have been praying for you every day and I did not even know your name.”
I also received the following message.
“I wonder and ask Him how can I, a little old lady by the world’s standards, turn anything around.”
She then followed up by writing, “Prayer does change things.”
These are the people who turn things around.
These are the people who truly change the world.
Give yourself to it.
If there is an intercessory prayer group in your church, join it.
Do not let anything or anybody keep you from what you know to be the reason you were put on this earth.
To pray for others.
It is too important.
On behalf of another.
“But I give myself to prayer.” Psalm 109:4
