The best gift anyone can give to another is to pray for
him or her.
Praying for another person not only helps that person find God in the midst of trouble,
but also helps us recognize the blessings that God gives us daily!
1 Timothy 2:1-5
"I urge, then, first of all,
prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone - for kings and all those
in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come
to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and
men, the man Christ Jesus." We are exhorted to pray for others - including our country's
leaders, our authorities at work and elsewhere, our church leaders, our co-workers,
friends, and family.
