Praying the Real Stuff

00:00

Description

The next time someone asks how they can pray for us, let's be willing to be real with them.

As I wrote down the prayer requests that were being shared, I realized we weren’t praying for each other.  We were only praying for other people in our lives.

Someone’s neighbor was having marriage problems, a co-worker was sick; a friend’s child was struggling. Although each request was prayer-worthy, I wondered why we weren’t praying for our own struggles, marriages, and kids.

I sensed God wanted me to be real about what was going on in my own life. You see when I’m real people can see, pray for, and get to know the “real me”. They’re more willing to share what’s real in their life, but most of all we get to see God answer our prayers as we do life together. 

So the next time someone asks how they can pray for us, let's be willing to be real with them. That way we can see God work in each other’s marriages, and it maybe just the thing they need to believe their life can be changed, too.
