Hear Their Prayers

handsAnd may You hear the supplications of Your servant and of Your people Israel, when they pray toward this place. Hear from heaven Your dwelling place, and when You hear, forgive.  2 Chronicles 6:21

I can’t pray all the prayers that need to be prayed. There are just too many needs in this world for me to pray them all.  So I ask the Holy Spirit to intercede for me.

King Solomon also asked God to hear others’ prayers. When he dedicated the temple which he had built with instructions from his father King David, Solomon asked God to hear anyone who prayed toward the temple. King Solomon said, “Hear from heaven Your dwelling place, and when You hear, forgive.

So, sometimes I also pray for God to hear the prayers of others…

Like Judy, for her son…she knows better than I do what he needs…

Like Dorothy, for the persecuted Christians.. she knows the world news better than I do…

Like my pastor, for our church family…he knows so may in need of prayer…

I pray, “Lord, in Your mercy, hear their prayers.”  And their prayers are multiplied by my prayers and the Holy Spirit, and even before we ask, our prayers have reached heaven and God has heard! Amen!

TODAY’S TEA CUPP: Is your prayer list overwhelming at times?  Lift your list to the Lord, calling Him to take each person and need.  Ask Jesus to hear the prayers of others.  Pray King Solomon’s prayer, “Hear from heaven Your dwelling place, and when You hear, forgive.

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.  Romans 8:26-27 (NKJV)
