Paul constantly prayed for people. His letters are filled with references to his prayer life on behalf of others. One of those blessed to be in Paul’s prayers was Timothy. Timothy had diverse interactions with Paul. He was his friend, fellow traveler, son in the faith, and a pastor in the Christian church. Although the two men were often separated from each other, their prayers provided a source of mutual encouragement.
Paul said, “I thank God, whom I serve with a clear conscience as my ancestors did when I constantly remember you in my prayers night and day.” 2 Timothy 1:3 HCSB
We too should pray consistently for others, especially for those who do God’s work. Pray for each other. Pray for your pastor, teacher, worship leader, missionary. Pray for those you lead. Prayer should be a part of every moment of every day. It should come as easily as breathing does.
Let’s pray for each other!
