Doesn’t it feel wonderful when someone tells you they are praying for you? I know personally, it just makes me feel all happy inside. Kinda like I just ate a big plate of chocolate gravy & biscuits. Other folks caring about us is essential in life. Going to the Lord, on our behalf, is a terrific way to show us how much we are thought of. When someone prays for another, it’s like a whole other avenue is opened up. Not only are our own prayers being laid at the Lord’s feet, He is hearing from others about us, too. What a blessing to have others to pray for us.
But what if you have a struggle no one else knows about? Do you know we have Someone else praying for us, too?
Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us[a] with groanings which cannot be uttered. (NKJV)
Romans 8:34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. (NKJV)
Jesus is pleading to God for us, also. He knows what it’s like to feel alone. But we don’t ever have to feel like we are alone in this ol’ world. As long as you are willing to pray, the Lord hears the prayer of Jesus & the prayer of the Holy Spirit. Ain’t that some good news in a world full of heartache, suffering, & pain? So let’s pray for each other, for our families, for our friends, & for the people who don’t want to be our friends. Everyone can benefit in some prayer, ya know? I would believe a good moral to this story is God’s looking out for us, always. We just have to reach out to Him.
Tiger facts to wow & amaze you:
May I also say that transforming Mr. Sweetie Pants into a tiger was the best $12 I have EVER spent. E.V.E.R. He was so excited that the lady painting his face said kids like him were the reason she painted faces. He was so excited. SO. EXCITED.
Happy fall y’all! Well, so they say it’s fall. Here in northeast Mississippi, the only time you can really feel the difference is in the mornings & later at night. We have had a little break in the weather today. It’s nice, cool, & crisp out. So thankful for the changing seasons!! Hope you have had a blessed week. As for me, I have to be going because I should be washing clothes.
