Intercessory Prayer

Thankful Thursday finds laundry being folded at our home. As my hands kept busy, my mind drifted to friends we met years ago, but haven’t talked with in a long time. Thoughts of them pressed upon my heart and I felt called to lift them in prayer.

After praying over them, my mind wandered to this thought: “How many times has someone prayed over me and I didn’t even know it?” What a gift! To be covered in prayer by someone else. And what an honor to cover someone else in prayer. Thank you God for these gifts!

There may be times where someone’s name or face pops in your mind. I challenge you that when that happens, say a prayer for them. In James 5:16, we are called to pray for one another. We don’t need to the specifics of what they are facing because God does, but your intercessory prayers wrap them in even more love. Keep praying friends!

Want to be part of a prayer group? We come together in a collective effort to support and lift up others. You do this during your time with God knowing others are also lifting these prayers to God. Join our Facebook group: Gravel Hill Prayers. It is a closed group to be mindful of the private and sensitive requests made. And it’s purpose: for you to be a prayer warrior both interceding where others are asking for assistance in prayer and requesting prayers for situations that need lifting. To join, please send an email to Katie.
