Praying You to Victory

We all struggle, and it can be both heartwarming and strengthening to know that someone is praying for us during those times. Have you ever been in a really tough situation and found yourself just wishing that someone would pray for you? Maybe you didn’t feel like you could even find the strength to pray for yourself, and you just hoped that someone was talking to God about you. When you are struggling and you want to know the feeling of someone else praying for you, you might be interested in reading the first half of Psalm 20. This is a blessing of sorts, with the writer talking about how he wants God to bless the reader. In the second half of the psalm, the writer proclaims that God can—and does—work things out for His people. And there are other places in the Bible where you can find prayers people have prayed for you. Jesus prayed for all Christians in John 17:20-23. Paul prayed for “all the Lord’s holy people” in Ephesians 3:14-21. When you are struggling, find someone you can go to who will pray for you. Don’t be ashamed to let others know you are having a hard time and you want prayer. You could also read Psalm 20 and let the words wash over you. No matter what you’re facing, you have a God who loves you, and He will have the victory. Through Jesus’s death and resurrection, He has defeated sin, death, and brokenness forever. And Jesus has promised to raise you from the dead when He returns to make all things new. If you’ve put your trust in Him, you will get to dwell with Him forever in perfect creation. This is the victory Christ offers you. And He will never disappoint. • Emily Acker • Can you remember a time someone prayed for you? How did it make you feel? • Who can you pray for today? Consider asking God to bring someone to mind. Now this I know: The Lord gives victory to his anointed. Psalm 20:6a (NIV)
