Many times, when we are praying for others, there is a false fear that is sent out, that because we are praying that evil will befall us.
However, I believe the opposite is in effect!
If we are praying for others with a heart of sincerity and compassion (that comes from The LORD) . . . that there are situations that we are not aware that are being averted.
That The LORD is gracing our lives with a greater capacity for understanding of who he really is. . . for Jesus Christ is the greatest intercessor of all time.
His death at Calvary’s Cross became “the intercession that ever lives for us.” in ways we may never truly understand it all in our lifetimes.
So as we pray, instead of allowing fear to enter in and make us feel as if we will be in big trouble. . . let’s look at it from this perspective: That as we are standing in the gap for others — and The LORD is working things out on our behalf, that might seem too difficult for us in that moment, because all the time we are praying He knows!
I believe during this process He is working in and through our lives, spiritually forming and maturing us in ways that are beyond our finding out.
He is moving along side of us. . . bringing clarity and providing instruction along the way.
So when we pray, know that eyes of The LORD are upon us all, and His ears are inclined to our tongues, our groans, and our cries as we earnestly pour out our hearts.
Don’t shy away from praying — nor be fearful or intimidated!
JUST PRAY. . . God hears us!
