Let me ask you this question: If Jesus said to you, “I will answer every single prayer that you pray this week,” how many people in your life would you pray for to receive Christ?
Are you praying for them now?
Have you grown weary of praying for someone – or given up entirely – because nothing seems to be happening within them?
What if, as we pray for others, God does something in us? Through prayer, God molds our character, grows our patience, and empowers us to persevere.
Richard Foster said, “If we truly love people, we will desire for them far more than it is within our power to give them and this will lead us to prayer.”
