Praying for Others by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/11/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Do you think your prayers really matter to other people? I’ll tell you, they matter to me!

God’s been gracious to raise up an incredible team of people who pray for me virtually every day. I can’t imagine what blessing and protection I’d be missing if it weren’t for their prayers. Knowing that they’re praying for me makes me want to intercede for others that God puts on my heart—family members, friends, the staff I work with, pastors and Christian leaders, our president and other elected officials, and unbelieving neighbors and friends.

Because it encourages me to know that others are praying for me, I keep some note cards handy next to my quiet time chair. As I pray for people, sometimes I write them a note to tell them that I appreciate them and that I prayed for them that day.

Be sure to pray for those God puts on your heart. You may never know until eternity how God used your prayers in their lives.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “I entreat you, give no place to despondency. This is a dangerous temptation–a refined, not a gross temptation of the adversary. Melancholy contracts and withers the heart, and renders it unfit to receive the impressions of grace. It magnifies and gives a false colouring to objects, and thus renders your burdens too heavy to bear. God’s designs regarding you, and His methods of bringing about these designs, are infinitely wise.” – Madame Guyon

You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord. — Leviticus 19:18 (NKJV)
