Joel Osteen Daily Devotional 8th September 2021 Message
We weren’t meant to carry the load of life on our own. We need one another. Life can be heavy. People have been through disappointments, are dealing with illnesses, and are lonely. They can smile on the outside but be hurting inside. They have pressure and stress we know nothing about. James tells us to “pray for one another” (James 5:16).
When you pray for them, it helps lighten the load. Your prayer causes the angels to go to work. Chains of depression, sickness, and loneliness that have held them back begin to loosen. When you speak faith into their destiny, the forces of darkness begin to lose their grip. It may not happen overnight, but your prayer is making a difference.
Your prayer may be what’s keeping them going. They don’t even know you’re praying, but the Scripture says that what you do in secret, God will reward you in the open. When you pray for others, God will always make sure somebody is praying for you.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that I can come boldly before Your throne and pray for the people You’ve brought into my life. Teach me to pray powerful prayers that produce wonderful results and make a difference for them. I will lift them up and help bear their burdens. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
