When we promise to pray for others, what do those prayers actually sound like? Here’s a positive practical example from the Apostle Paul:
“My prayer is that God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ will be kind to you and will bless you with peace! I never stop thanking my God for being kind enough to give you Christ Jesus, who helps you speak and understand so well.” (1 Corinthians 1:3-5, CEV)
I love the way Paul asks the Lord for His kindness and peace, praying these over his fellow believers. Even more, how wonderful is it to thank God for extending His miraculous Gospel and His spiritual blessings of wisdom and understanding and clear ministry to them? What an apt model for intercession.
