How to Pray for People

If you want to learn how to pray for other people effectively consider following this simple plan in today’s devotion.

Here is an idea to help us all increase in our prayer lives and make a difference in the lives of others. Make a list of the people who you are connected with every week, friends, family, church family, teachers and people you may work with. Now take time to pray for each person for the things in their lives that you know about. Make your prayers be specific, for instance, if there is a friend who is struggling in Math class, pray that God open their understanding with that subject. Rather than just praying generally like, “Lord bless them.” Try doing this everyday for a week, and believe for God to work in their lives.

Ephesians 6:18

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

As we learn how to pray for others and continue doing what we are commanded to do, we will see positive results happen. Heaven will begin to do things that we could have never imagined possible.
