I will pray for you.

Those five words are powerful. Just think of how often you have spoken them. A friend mentions they have been sick, a coworker has a financial struggle, a family member is worried about loosing their job, and we say, “I will pray for you”.

I’ll be honest I have said those words flippantly and without a second thought. I’m wondering if you have done the same. Thought so.

Today a friend was sharing a prayer request with me. It hit me in that second what a privilege and what a blessing this is. Someone is entrusting me with a deep concern and asking me to go on their behalf before the throne of the almighty God and petition Him for them. Wow!! What an awesome responsibility and gift they have given me.
