Dear Watermark Church family,
Jesus: “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word.” John 17:20
Apostle Paul: “I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all.” Philippians 1:3,4
Praying for others (intercessory prayer) has powerful results! Why? Because we are taking our requests for others to the One Who loves us greatly and who has the power to answer any request we have.
The verses above reveal that Jesus and Paul were committed to praying for others. They prayed fervently, specifically and frequently for the various needs of people they met each day. They also prayed that people would know the Heavenly Father and would grow into mature followers of Christ who live for the glory of God and not for the things of this earth.
You and I can also pray consistently with power for others:
- Pray for the specific needs of your family and friends
- Pray for specific people who may not know Christ
- Pray for your church (unity, spiritual maturity, outreach, growth, abundant finances, local and global missions)
- Pray for your pastors (humility, wisdom, boldness, leadership, excellence)
- Pray for revival and spiritual awakening in your city / country
Intercessory prayer accomplishes much, because an all loving and all powerful God is the object of our prayers of faith for others. Remember, nothing is impossible for God! Join us this Sunday at 10:30AM at Watermark Church as we discover what the Bible says about how we can pray with power!
