Wendy said, “My heart for this year: That we would seriously build into one another, praying for and blessing one another’s spirits. Thanks for the prayer. x”
This is the heart of Jesus. The building into another through the invisible act of praying. We are called to pray for each other. Something we may not always remember. To those who have that special weight to pray for another, I say this – May God make your intercession fruitful, and may we all seek to have a heart like His. I believe as the Spirit leads you to pray, you will see change in the lives of people who need your prayers to move forward in who they are, in God’s plan for their lives “for such a time as this.”
We are all connected and our prayers for each other are hugely significant. But, to pray Spirit-led prayers are mighty and powerful for the building up, healing and strengthening of another. We usually think we know what someone else should do. We don’t. We can only see so far, so to pray that someone be built up in the Lord, strengthened in spirit, is beautiful and creative. And God works through prayers such as these.
May we all come to know our own significance and legitimacy in the Father’s heart for us, letting that spill out in prayers, encouragement, and love to rush over others who need that building up like a refreshing stream – ourselves submerged in that pool as well.
So seek the Father as how to pray, and if you need a guide or source, get a copy of Blessing Your Spirit by Arthur Burk and Sylvia Gunter. This will start you on a prayer journey of intercession founded in love for others. And you will find yourself blessed in the process. You may just find that God has been looking for another intercessor…you.
