Do you ever go on prayer walks?
It is warmer now in our tiny town, and I am able to resume my morning habit of walking around to pray for my neighbours.
I don’t tell them that I am praying for their individual needs, because they would find it strange that I would choose to pray for them when I may not know them very well.
That, however, is the nature of intercessory prayer. It is prayer offered on behalf of others.
I pass a house in the traditional style called : ‘Cat’s Ears’.
Many of our houses are built like this, with twin peaks that resemble cats’ ears.
I know that a young woman is living there with a baby. Her husband is hospitalized. I wish I could drop by with some food, and some supplies for the baby, but then I remember that we are in the time of ‘these days’ and dropping by is not allowed.
And so I pray, and I continue on , past the house where another young woman lives with her parents and her two young children. Her boyfriend left her when her youngest child was born, and her parents offered to have her move home.
Time passes quickly on a prayer walk.
Perhaps you are a prayer intercessor too. We are in good company. We know that Jesus sits at the right hand of God, and intercedes for all of us.
