Equipping Your Reimagine Journey

Praying for Others

I try to start most of my days in the Scriptures and praying.  I don’t hit every day but it’s a habit I feel is worth working on. I use a journal because it helps me to focus and I like to write out my prayers.  Reading, studying and meditating on Scripture is a rich time for me personally.  However, I also like to pray for others, but sometimes I’m not always sure what to pray for.

So, I decided, “why not pray for them what the Scriptures are teaching me.”  For instance, this morning I read Psalm 28 and wrote out verses 8-9 in my journal,

“The Lord is the strength of his people;

He is the saving refuge of His anointed.

Oh, save your people and bless your heritage!

Be their shepherd and carry them forever.”


I just turn this Scripture into a prayer for others, that the Lord would be their strength today, that they would be blessed and that Jesus, our Shepherd would carry them.  This is a simple and yet profound way to pray for people because it uses God’s Word, not just my own. Give it a try. You really can’t go wrong, and people will be blessed and strengthened as God answers your prayers, which by the way, He loves to do!


All for Jesus,

Thank you for this wise and refreshing method of praying for others. For my daily Bible reading I am using Scripture Union's devotional booklet, Discovery. I had never considered including my prayer list alongside the reading to get new ideas of how to pray for those on my list. This is so helpful! Thanks.
