Why Should We Pray?

Today I have prayer on my heart. So many times I run to my friends and family when I’m hurt or need council for a certain area in my life. Please don’t get me wrong, I’m a firm believer in good, Godly counsel.

Today, However, I feel such urgency in my spirit to reach out to the final Authority in my life.

By Him, all things are possible. Jesus says in Mark 10:27, "Humanly speaking, it is impossible but not with God. Everything is possible with God."

I had a dear Sister in Christ call today in regard to her lost Husband. My flesh was thinking “Why don’t you just leave him!” Then I heard that still small voice.
Why not pray for his soul……………………….OH MY!
Why not? Why wasn’t that my first thought. Each and every day I’m confronted with a moment where I see my heart of flesh!


Daniel 9:18 tells us: “We do not ask because we deserve help, but because you are so merciful.” (Mercy means showing favor, compassion, and kindness.)

I didn’t DESERVE SALVATION. It was a gift. Just as this wayward Husband doesn’t DESERVE MERCY, KINDNESS OR GRACE! BUT GOD…………………………

Help me Father to love all people. Regardless of who I THINK THEY ARE. Help me see them through the blood of your Son just as you see me! Forgive my heart of flesh and help me to have a heart of Christ!

In Jesus name I pray,


  1. this post really hit home for me as we have 2 precious women in our congregation whose husbands are lost. they are both strong women of God and humble servants in our church. i needed this reminder to always be in prayer for them and their husbands. God can change them!

  2. Hi Holly! What a GREAT post and awesome reminder. You/your friend might find my post "What do we do with the sinner?" quite interesting. Let's just say, I have great insight into this type of situation.
    Blessings and hugs,
