Jesus Prayed for Others and So Can You
Some of Jesus Christ’s most enduring words weren’t directed to His disciples but rather to His Father in Heaven as He prayed on behalf of others. As we seek to improve our prayers, we can look to Christ as our ultimate example.
THREE SIMPLE WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
Ask God how you can be an answer to someone else’s prayer.
When was the last time you prayed with your family? Pray as a family over dinner or before you go to bed tonight.
Never tried praying? Here’s how.
“9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”
