Job 42:10 And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.
God's programme cuts through generations and spans through time to eternity. However, it is His purpose to reach others through us.
One of the wonderful plans he has for us is to pray for our friends. FRIENDS here mean 'friends' it is all encompassing, from family, friends or acquaintances to colleagues and even strangers who we mustn't leave without making friends with.
If anyone needed prayer most it was Job - a billionaire who had lost EVERYTHING (health and wealth), except his life, but God wanted him to go ahead and pray for his rich friends! He did.
When we pray for others we can never run out of God-centered prayer requests.
How many times have we tried prayer but we could not really feel we have enough or a lot to pray about?
When you are concerned about other's needs, God start being concerned about your needs.
Remember your children or spouse can and should even be 'friends' with you.
Pray for your Children
Pray for your spouse
Pray for family
Pray for your friends
Pray for your staff
Pray for your country
Pray for the sick
Pray for the aged
Pray for those who need to become rich.
Pray for the nations
Pray for those who need the gospel
Pray that the will of God be done on their lives. John17:3
So also I pray for you today my friend; that according to the word of the Lord, today shall not just be a day of double but a day of 7 fold restoration of all that has been stolen .
Arise, Shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you! In Jesus name.
Remember Jesus is the way the truth and the LIGHT.. to really SHINE in life you need to have a solid, purposeful relationship with Him. GOODNEWS! You can start now. By speaking to Him saying, JESUS I know and realize you Love me and gave your self in my place. Come into my life and be my Lord and saviour. You might want to buzz me to let me know if you made this new decision or you can join a Bible- believing local Church in your neighborhood. Welcome to God's family!
Once again remember Job, the billionaire who lost all; but still prayed for his friends and God restored all and gave him twice as much.
Your billion-dollar FRIEND,
