Praying for others and the rewards thereof.
When we ask for prayer, do we do it in vain? We shouldn't. But sometimes we do. It becomes a habitual thing. But are we praying for others as we should? At our church we have a prayer chain, how its supposed to work is that when we get the call to pray we pray right then for that situation. Sometimes we get caught up in asking the Lord for our needs we don't remember those others out there that are just as in need.
The bible says in 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.
Which means:: When Job quit thinking of himself, his own sorrows and started praying for his friends, that the Lord restored him, He reinstated him and gave him greater than before. He was being held captive by his own choice until he made the change. When we pray for others, God can remove that which stands against us. When we pray for others God see us as being loving and kind. When we can look beyond our sorrows and pains, and show love and charity for someone else, we are being obedient to the Lord. Even to pray for our enemies, God will reward us. Why you ask? Because we are showing love and charity toward another person.
The Bible says in Colossians 3:14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
Put others before our own wants, and you will reap the harvest of what God will give unto you, and more abundantly.
Search out the scriptures and see what it says. Don't just take my word for it. My prayer is that if you don't know God and Jesus Christ as your savior that you will come to find and know Him.
