Pray for One Another

The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. James 5:16

A dear friend recently attended a ladies retreat. She was challenged to ask people to pray each day for two requests for the next month. I was honored to be asked to stand in prayer with my friend for her two requests. In just the first week we have seen some answers to one of the requests. The other request is a bit more long-term but we know God is moving. As I think about praying for one another I am challenged, first of all, to keep my commitment to pray and secondly, to be mindful to look for the way God is working.

I received a text from this friend one morning with the challedge to watch for a God sighting that day. I watched…for maybe a half hour…then got caught up in the day. How much do we miss because we will not pray and we will not watch?

We can all do better. Will you join me in praying and watching more intentionally?
