Do you ever find it difficult to help a friend or family member who is deeply struggling?
You just can’t seem to find the right words to say. You want to give them hope but are completely stuck on how to help them.
Maybe there is someone in your life who is driving you crazy. You don’t want anything to do with them.
Here is how to help them. And you!
Pray for them.
Now I know this seems rather simple, but I am entirely serious. Your friends and family need you to pray for them.
Pray for that friend or family member who drives you nuts!
Pray for the friend or family member who is struggling through a difficult time right now.
These people are in your life for a reason and they really need your prayer!
For the person in your life who drives you crazy, well it’s hard to feel annoyed with them if you are continually praying for them. And pray for blessing for them, it’s even more hard to be annoyed by them if you pray for God to bless them.
For the person/s who are struggling through a tough time, you will see blessings start to happen for them, and you will be able to send up prayers of thanks!
One way to stay inspired with praying for others is to put them in your journal. Write out a long prayer for this person, pour your hearts out for them.
Whenever you feel annoyed by them, or you hear about a trial, send up a prayer for them! When you have more time go back and re-read the prayer you wrote out for them.
Praying for your friends and family is life changing work. You will be so amazed the day you go back to see the long prayer you wrote out for them realize how much has changed for them AND YOU!
These prayers work SO well, I have seen huge blessings and rewards from praying for others this way!
Yes, the most beautiful thing you can give your friends and family and the life-changing gift of prayer.
Stop now and pray for the people God put in your life. You’ll be so blessed you prayed for them!
