Cover Them in Prayer

Read 1 Timothy 2:1-4

“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."

Reflect

Do you cover your loved ones in prayer? (Why or why not?)

Praying for your loved ones helps you put them in God’s hands, not only during a crisis, but in everyday situations as well. Besides your own prayers for them, join with a prayer partner. Two close, faithful prayer partners have been a great source of strength to Dana; one lives 250 miles away, but once a week at 6:15 in the morning they meet on their laptops for a powerful time of praying together.

If possible, link up with another friend who has walked with God as they faced adversity in their lives. These individuals can become real prayer warriors!

Prayer networks are also important when there are ongoing needs or crises. Their local church and Dana’s Bible study group has been part of that network to support her in prayer. They also developed an electronic prayer network where they share prayer requests and praises with hundreds of friends and family here and around the world through e-mail.

This enabled them to send on-the-spot requests as they walk through some of the most challenging of times. Fear is banished and peace fills Dana’s heart.

Pray

Lord, wrap Your loving arms around my family and friends. Protect them, encourage them, let them know they are deeply loved by You. Amen.
