When Las Vegas pianist Liberace died, I wondered
“Did anyone ever pray for Liberace?”
I don’t know if anyone ever prayed for him but I thought,
“How tragic to live a life untouched by someone’s prayers.”
Millions pass through the world without having their name
lifted in prayer to the Almighty God.
In stadiums, thousands sit in stands who have never had their name
lifted in prayer to Christ.
Hundreds shop alongside us in malls that have never had their name lifted in prayer to Jesus.
Scores wait in long lines with us who have never had their name
lifted in prayer.
Look around you.
Take a second look at the people where you work,
shop, eat, find recreation and ask yourself,
“Is anyone praying for these people?”
As you encounter people each day
offer a simple prayer asking Christ
to touch their lives and
to lead them to a place of closeness to Him.
Make sure that the people you meet have had
at least one prayer offered to God on their behalf.
Does someone pray for you?
If so, you are blessed.
Many of us are supported by daily prayers.
Take time to think of the people who pray for you.
Take time to thank them for their prayers.
Take time to pray for them.
“If you have a friend to whom you can say,
In quiet simplicity, ‘Please, will you pray
For me?’ and know that a prayer of love
Will rise to the holy God above,
You have a treasure of brighter span
Than all the jewels since time began.”
