Despite of Differences,Come Unity in Jesus Christ!

Pray for others!

Intercession is praying to God on behalf of others who needs our prayers for God's intervention.
Jesus Christ is our model for intercessory prayer. Jesus set the example and He prayed for others and taught His followers to pray like him. (Luke 22:32, Luke 23:34, Romans 8:34, John 17:6-26)

God says to offer prayers for those who murmur against God(Numbers 14:19), Those who forsake us(2 Timothy 4:16)and envy us(Numbers 12:13), for the Enemies among whom we dwell(Jeremiah 29:7), for the sick people(James 5:14), Persecutors(Matthew 5:44), Friends(Job 42:8), Children(Matthew 15:22, Genesis 17:18), Servants(Luke 7:2-3) and masters(Genesis 24:12-14),for All men( 1 Timothy 2:1) and All saints(Ephesians 6:18), for the Church(Psalms 122:6), Ministers(2 Corinthians 1:11)Kings and All in authority. (1 Timothy 2:2).

The Bible has many cases of people standing up for others and praying before God 1.Abrahm prayed for Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 18:20-33.

2. Moses Prayed and Interceded For Israel in Exodus 32:11-13, Exodus 32:31-32.

3. Stephen Prayed For His Murderers At The Point Of His Death in Acts 7:60

4. Daniel was a man of prayers. he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees 3 times a day and prayed(Daniel 6:10 ) .He Prayed for the Sins of His People in Daniel 9:1-3.

5. Nehemiah Prayed Identifying With The Sins Of His People in Nehemiah 1:3-11.

6. Ezra prayed Identifying with the Sins of His People in Ezra 9:6-15.

7. Elijah prayed God to Reveal Himself to the People in I Kings 18:36-37.

8. Paul's Prayed For Ephesians in Ephesians 3:14-20), for Philippians in Philippians 1:9-11) and for Colossians in Colossians 1:9-17)

God says if any one of us is sick He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord(James 5:14).He commands us to confess the sins with each other so that we can be healed (James 5:16) and that the PRAYER OF FAITH SHALL SAVE THE SICK which says in James 5:15.

Pray, Pray, Pray without ceasing! May God bless us as we pray for others!

God Bless!
