Favorite Quote on Prayer:
". . . we should pray and intercede for our family members and especially those who cannot or will not pray for themselves."

Miriam Kinai, Boxed Set 5 Christian Sermons


Editor's Thoughts:
I find that Miriam's quote reminds us that we are not to only pray for ourselves, but we should pray for others. When you look at Jesus's life you will find that he prayed often and we can be sure that he prayed for others first.

So what is the meaning of prayer and intercede? When you look up the definition of prayer it states, "a request for help or expression of thanks addressed to God." And when you look up the definition of intercede it states, "intervene on behalf of another."

How often do we try and take things into our own hands and try to convince other people of our beliefs only to have it go very wrong? Personally, I have had situations I would rather not relive as it went from bad to worse. We may try to intervene ourselves by discussing God with the family member, but many times the person will not listen to us and in some cases it can cause dissension in families. In most cases, the discussion does not go well. Rather than argue and fight with our family member, it is always better to turn to God and pray to him to open their hearts. In so many families there is disagreement and, in some cases, disillusion with what and who God is. It is heartbreaking to realize that the people you love are missing out on the greatest thing this life has to offer - a relationship with a loving God. So when we pray, we should always pray for those family members and friends who do not know God. As we know, our prayers do make a difference and we know that nothing is impossible for God!
