READ: Ephesians 6:18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people.
I heard a story about a young lady who was having an extreme amount of difficulty during labor. The labor was difficult, long, and extensive with setbacks and the baby was not getting enough oxygen. The doctor had declared that the baby would have cerebral palsy due to the difficulties.
The young lady in labor told the doctor that the baby would be fine because of HER GOD and what He can do!
At this very same time an older woman who attended the same church as the young pregnant lady was awakened at night and God impressed it upon her heart to pray for this young lady. The older woman prayed ALL NIGHT LONG. The baby turned out to be completely healthy!
Have you ever been awakened at night to pray for someone? Or maybe you are awake and it's daytime but your thoughts keep going to a certain person. That is actually God who is pressing this person into your spirit. You are to hold them up before the Lord in prayer. We never know day by day what someone is facing at that given moment, temptations they are about to fall into, or the enemy is most certainly trying to take them out. Your prayers could literally be the difference between safety and harm, or life and death for someone.
Jeremiah 29:12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
God is faithful and he hears us when we pray. It is not wasted time - it is time sowing into Kingdom work. Who are you to pray for today? Allow God to use you in this powerful and important way!
