Praying for Others


We can be effective in praying for others and claiming God’s promises for them.  The more we have sin out of our lives, the more God hears our prayers for others. I find that the more specific I pray for others the more I am encouraged when God answers my specific request.

After the children of Israel made a golden calf to worship, Moses interceded for the people and prayed,

God told Job's friends to have Job intercede for them in prayer. God said,

Daniel also interceded for his people.

Intercessory Prayer

The more we have sin out of our lives, the more God hears our prayers for others.

“But the trouble is that your sins have cut you off from God. Because of sin He has turned His face away from you and will not listen anymore.” Isaiah 59.2.

“The Lord's face is hard against those who do evil.” Psalm 34:16.

“He saw no one was helping you, and wondered that no one intervened....”

Isaiah 59:16.

“...I have set intercessors on your walls who shall cry to God all day and all night for the fulfillment of His promise.” Isaiah 62:6.

“Then when Job prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his wealth and happiness...”

Job 42:10.

“ servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer on your behalf.” Job 42:8.

“Even while I was praying and confessing my sins and the sins of my people.” Daniel 9:20.

“Yet now if you will only forgive their sin...” Exodus 32:32.

“Could the greatest act of love, we might ever do for someone, be to PRAY for them?”


It could change their life, save them for Heaven, free a life from the prison of sin. What earthly act of love could we ever do that would be greater than this?
