Praying for a Friend
Wednesday, August 27th, 2014
Paul wrote, "We have not ceased praying for you and asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of God's will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding."
- Colossians 1:9 (NRSV)
Unfounded accusations at work, a rebellious teenager, an unpaid mortgage, nagging illness -- the hardships my co-worker was experiencing seemed overwhelming. I listened without comment. What could I say? He surely didn't need a lecture on how to endure hardship. My heart ached for him. My mind searched for a helpful response. When he paused to take a drink of water, I said, "I'd love to solve even one of these problems for you, but I can't. But I can and I do pray for you." I picked up my Bible, opened it to Philippians 1, and said, "Here's what Paul prayed for the Philippians. It's what I'm praying for you: that God will give you depth of insight so that you may be able to discern what is best, and that your behavior in each matter will bring glory to God."
Just hearing those words comforted my friend. He smiled and said, "You're a good friend. I'm praying for you, too."
"I'm always willing to listen. It helps me pray more often and more specifically for you," I told him.
People don't usually need advice. Instead, God calls us to be listeners and intercessors.
