Pray for others!: Verse of the Day


‭Ephesians 6:18-20 NKJV‬
[18] praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— [19] and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, [20] for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

If we want to win in life, we must focus on helping our community win. This is the lesson Ephesians 6:18-20 teaches us. After going through all that great effort of putting on the armor of God, one would expect prayers to be focused on yourself. No, Paul says to win, pray for others!

David served his generation well because he fought for the welfare of others even when he was facing personal challenges himself. We must never let our personal challenges stop us from supporting and Praying for our families, communities, and our leaders.

How often do you pray for other believers? How often do you pray for your church leaders to be more anointed? Do you pray for the Company you work for, your colleagues and bosses? Don’t complain. Things are as they are because someone is not taking their Christian responsibilities seriously.

When we put on the armor of God and pray as we should, people will recognise and testify that God has blessed them on account of us (Genesis 30:27). If all church members would stop complaining and be like Jacob to their churches, their churches would be blessed and be more blessing to their communities, bringing increase and growth.

Today, let us put on the whole armor of God, pray for other believers, and pray for our leaders that God will give them utterance to speak His word as they ought to. May God bless you as you commit yourself to such prayers, in Jesus’s name. Amen!
