Every Christian Should Be Prayerful

God, whom I serve in my spirit in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness how constantly I remember you in my prayers at all times.(Romans 1:9-10)

Apostle Paul's primary ministry was that of preaching the Gospel. But he had also a ministry of prayer. He made prayer a priority and the Roman believers were never taken off his prayer list. Paul was a man of prayer. His praying wasn't selfish; it was always on behalf of others.

What a lesson for us! Our praying should not be selfish in nature. We should engage more on intercessory prayer. We should have a prayer burden for others.

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. (Gal. 6:2)

We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. (Romans 15:1)

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. (Eph. 6:18)

God would have us involved in a prayer ministry and touch the lives of others!

How would you describe your prayer life? Who is the main topic of your prayer life, you or others? This is an area where we can all improve!
