Day 97 Prayer
Thursday, December 29, 2016
Epaphras, who is one of you and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends greetings. He is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured. - Colossians 4:12
I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one. - Ezekiel 22:30
It's easy in the busyness in life to overlook a prayer request someone else has made. Take time right when you receive a request to talk to the Lord on the requester's behalf. Be the bridge that carries that person through the valley of darkness back to the mountaintop of joy.
Heavenly Father, help me to have a heart of compassion. Help me never to be too busy to pray for those I know and even those I do not know who need Your comfort.
