• “If we do anything to further the kingdom of God, we may expect to find what Christ found on that road – abuse, indifference, injustice, misunderstanding, trouble of some kind. Take it. Why not? To that you were called. If we think of the glorious fact that we are on the same path with Jesus, we might see a rainbow.” – Elisabeth Elliot

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.
