When praying for others, a prayer list is very personal. To protect the identity of those for whom I pray, I won’t actually copy and paste my list here. But I want to share with you how you can start your own prayer list and organize it so that you can keep track of how God answers those prayers. Keep in mind that we must pray in faith by the power of the Holy Spirit according to the Scriptures and God’s will.
“But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.”
Children, ours and those of others (Isaiah 49:25)
Enemies, persecutors (Matthew 5:44)
Those who are sick, injured, dying
The soon coming of Christ
Psalm 79:9-10 KJV
“Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name’s sake. Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is their God? let him be known among the heathen in our sight by the revenging of the blood of thy servants which is shed.”
Psalm 115:1-3 KJV
“Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake. Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God? But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.”
Psalm 145:17-19 KJV
“The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works. The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.”
Of course, you may think of other categories of those who need prayers. My mother found that when she prayed for others three times a day that God answered those prayers with greater haste. Persistence in prayer uttered according to the will of God as revealed in His Word will always be answered at the right time. God bless!
