I sat slumped at the kitchen table. My health had been up and down for weeks and was getting worse. Then at 9:48 that morning, I felt a surge in my spirit. I knew you prayed for me, I knew without a doubt God had moved. The illness, the headache that had been growing all morning was suddenly gone. I felt it lift and knew it had lifted by the hand of God, moved by your sweet prayers.
Thank you, dear friend, whoever you are. Thank you. Thank you for being one who felt that gentle nudge to pray, who didn’t ignore the prompting, but went to battle in the heavenlies on my behalf. Thank you.
A few days later, when I couldn’t breathe, couldn’t catch my breath when some unexpected, soul-shattering news came, I knew at 4:13 pm you prayed. Thank you. Thank you for listening to the Holy Spirit. Thank you for praying for me. Thank you for breathing grace, giving life support when breath couldn’t be found and when life was too hard to take a breath on my own. Thank you for praying.
Oh friends, your prayers make a difference. Your prayers provide heavenly CPR. Your prayers are God’s grace breathing into others who need life support. Your prayers are the oxygen mask for those struggling to breathe during difficult events.
Please pray when the Holy Spirit prompts you to pray. When God’s spirit moves, move in action, move right then, for someone may not be able to stand and needs your prayer support. Breathe grace through your prayers, for your prayers drop mercy drops on those who are hurting.
“Prayer for another person is like touching God with one hand and touching the person with the other. That’s what intercessory prayer is all about.” ~ Jim Cymbala
“Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.” ~ Ephesians 6:18 (NLT)
