When We Hear Or Say These Words-"I'll Be Praying For You"

As we go through challenging moments in our lives, family and friends tell us, "I'll be praying for you." Or, if someone we know is going through tough times, we will communicate these exact words. Prayer is a gift we can receive as well as a gift we can give to others.
God asks us to pray as we read in Philippians 4:6 "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God."
There are times we may not know how to pray. We can start with:
Dear God, Please bring Your help (name the situation)
Dear God, Please bring Your healing to (name the person).
You are welcome to add more words as they come to your heart. Giving thanks to God for His help with each prayer shows we appreciate Him, and He loves to hear our prayers. Ending each prayer with "in Jesus' name" acknowledges our access to God in prayer.
An excellent way to remember our prayers is to record them in a journal. 
Whatever situation or circumstance our loved ones are going through or we are going through, we can be confident that we can bring our prayers and requests to God.

With love,
