Say a Prayer Today

Do you ever get the feeling someone is in need of prayer or being lifted up? You might not know what for, but their face or name pops into your head. That’s God’s way of putting them on your heart. They might have a need for you to intercede for them.

Sometimes God puts someone in your mind so you will pray for them. It helps keep us from always focusing on ourselves.

Matthew 21:22 reads, “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” God has awesome power. Why not share it with others? Pray that someone you know may be healed or any struggles their going through alleviated. Imagine how you could change someone’s life with just one prayer.

I have someone who God put on my heart this week. She needs to feel God’s presence. If this person reads this, I want her to look up. Close her eyes. Picture God’s face looking down on her. The smile is not only on his lips but in his eyes as well. He’s smiling brightly because she is His child and He loves her very much. I’m hoping that put a smile on my friend’s face, and it helped make her day better.

Every day this week, say a quick prayer for someone you might not normally pray for. Wouldn’t it be great to hear that person say something special happened? Don’t let them know you prayed for them. Let that be a secret between you and God.

  1. One of the great privileges we have as a child of God!

    1. Pat, you’re right. I was listening to someone talk about the Islamic religion and how they don’t even say that their God loves them. It is so wonderful to have a God who wants to hear from us.

    Thank you for a great way to start each day – Praying for someone else
    with love in our hearts!

    1. If nothing else, it starts your Monday off right.

  3. Yes! When I do my morning prayer (always before I start my day) I will all of a sudden think of someone and pray. Thanks for bringing clarity to that and more understanding. It is God working in our lives, it is listening and being still and knowing it is indeed God calling us to attention. Have a beautiful day. Blessings to you for sharing the word.

    1. Blessings to you also. I hope you have a wonderfully God-filled week.
