We are blessed to have our church, family and friends. On earth, we have the Lord and each other and the privilege to pray for each other.
…the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. This verse tells us how important it is that we pray for our families and friends. The book of James, chapter five, encourages us to pray one for another.
We are also encouraged to pray for our leaders! I Timothy, chapter two, instructs us to pray for our leaders.
1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
The word supplication means to petition, and petition means to ask. This is to request God to help our nation by helping our leaders.
To pray is to talk to God anytime, in any place, and in any way you can.
Then, to intercede in prayer is to experience the intense, passion of prayer. In some ways it describes a prayer of urgency or desperation.
Our community and country is at a spiritual crossroad. It appears that God has given us an opportunity for revival and spiritual renewal!
We should pray together for each other, our church, our families and the leaders of our nation.
