“Now Isaac pleaded with the Lord for his wife, because she was barren; and the Lord granted his plea, and Rebekah his wife conceived.” Genesis 25:21 NKJV
This is one type of prayer a lot of us Christians don’t do. We think that it’s the responsibility of the pastor of prayer department in church. No, every child of God should intercede for others. There must be people who you are constantly interceding for; and when God answers, you have a new list.
The problem with a lot of us is that we gossip more than we pray. When we see someone erring, we’re excited to have new gist! The love some of us have for gossip is unbelievable, no wonder we spend so much of our time on gossip blogs and websites. What a shame.
1 John 5:16a says, “Suppose you see your fellow believer sinning (sin that does not lead to eternal death). You should pray for them. Then God will give them life.” You see, the life and destinies of people are in your hands. It’s a responsibility that God has given to each and everyone of us, and we’ve got to pray! Pray for the unsaved, for the sick, for those with problems and challenges. God will take care of your own issues as you intercede for others. Amen.
