Praying for You – DAY 13 of 40 (LENT) | Naima Lett
Several of my friends are battling sickness right now.
Maybe yours are too.
Maybe you are.
Some are enduring employment woes, financial hardship, relationship drama. You name it. All Hades has broken loose.
Before I went to bed last night, you were on my heart. I woke up with a burden to pray for you. So that’s what I’m doing. And I invite you to pray for those in your life that are going thru ups and downs too.
So far, this week in our devotionals, we’ve seen that when God’s people corporately pray and fast, the Lord shows up.
Today, let’s see what happens when one child of God decides to pray and fast in intercession for someone else.
Day 13: Today’s Emphasis
Click here to read: NEHEMIAH 1:3-11
If we read further into Nehemiah Chapter 2, we see that God gives Nehemiah success in his request, and he sets out on a mission for the restoration of God’s people and their city. And it all started with a child-like conversation with the God of heaven:
Verse 4, “When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.”
Today, I kneel before the “LORD, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments (vs.5)”, and I wade in the gap for you.
If you’ve sent prayer requests, know that they are being bathe in prayer.
If you have prayer requests, EMAIL me. It’s confidential.
If you have fam who are going thru rough patches, pray for them.
This one thing I know, we have a Father in heaven who cares for His children. And He turns His ear to us as we pray for one another.
I am full today. There have been times when I have been completely empty, in a dry, dry wilderness. Times when the prayers of others carried me. So, I know what it’s like.
Today, I’m strengthened and can go to bat for you. The Lord is near. His ears are attentive. His Spirit is present. And I am truly grateful for the privilege to lift you up. We are all in this thing together. I thank the Lord that His love and care for us endures forever.
And if you happen to be in LA and you’re looking to connect with other fam that can lift you up and walk alongside, we’re in the Hills every Sunday for bible, food & fellowship at Hope in the Hills. No need to try to go at it alone!:=)
Praying for you,
