Pray For One Another

God has called us to love one another. This is such an important part of our relationship with God that He says loving one another will be the mark of His disciples. One of the most significant ways we can to this is to pray for one another. The Following are just a few of the scriptures prompting us to love one another:

  • John 13:34
    “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
  • John 13:35
    By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
  • Romans 12:10
    Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.
  • Romans 13:8
    Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.
  • Galatians 5:13
    You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature ; rather, serve one another in love.
  • Ephesians 4:2
    Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
  • Hebrews 10:24
    And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
  • 1 Peter 1:22
    Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart.
  • 1 Peter 3:8
    Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.

As you can see, loving and caring for one another is so important to God! He loves us, and we are His hands and feet, so it is our job to show His love to one another.

So many of us are hurting. So many of us need love. So many of us need prayer; It is our job as a body of Christ to be there for each other, and to pray for one another. So my hope for this post is to create a place for us as a body, to help each other through prayer (James 5:16):

  1. If you are in need, let us all know. Leave your name (or leave anonymous) and your prayer request in the comment form at the bottom of the page. And we will be sure to start praying for you.
  2. Scroll down and see who has left prayer requests, and pray for them. You could also reply to their prayer request(s) and leave them an encouraging message.

I strongly encourage anyone who is in need, to please ask for prayer. It doesn’t have to be huge, it can be anything! (maybe you have trouble devoting time to God, maybe someone close to you is in the hospital, maybe you stubbed your toe and it REALLY hurts!…Anything!). Let us deliberately be the hands and feet of Jesus in our daily lives. Let us strive to love one another.

Thank you, and God bless.

    I pray that God softens my husband Roland’s heart so he may forgive me and love me again. I ask in Jesus’ name that He restore my marriage to Roland. We have both hurt eachother. I had to lose everything to realize my wife role and duties that God planned me to have and be. Please send strong prayers so that negative and opposing influences on our marriage stay away. My God is a great ad mighty God and He will protect us. I humbly ask the Father to keep any temptation away, and that God works on his heart as well as mine. In Jesus name, Amen.

  • Anonymous woman September 3, 2011, 4:49 pm

    I really could use prayer. I have a nice Christian husband who I don’t see much because he works a lot, and I made the poor decision of getting emotionally involved with a coworker without meaning to at first. One thing led to another, and an affair occurred two different times. I feel terrible, and so does the other man. He went away for a while but came back, and we both have an emotional connection that I can’t describe. We have not met up since he got back because we both know where it would lead. I can’t say I do not have feelings for him though because I feel a strong bond with him. My husband says he wants to be a good leader and works hard but I already opened the door to something I shouldn’t have. It’s easy to say I should cut the other man off but truthfully I am thinking of leaving my husband. We do not have children but we also don’t have that much in common. I know this is not acceptable from God’s perspective which is why I need prayer. I am already in too deep emotionally and don’t want to hurt anyone. I want to tell my husband about the affair but don’t want him to ask if I have feelings for the other man because I do. I also don’t want to cut the other man off because it would hurt so much. I can’t keep this going though because an emotional affair is still wrong. Please pray for God’s truth to prevail in my life. I know the right thing to do but am wanting to feel desired, wanted and loved. I need to seek that with God but have a hard time doing it lately. I don’t see my husband often and we don’t share the same passions in life. It seemed like we used to but don’t anymore. Is it possible to fall in love with my husband again? It is all possible with God but I am having a hard time doing his will instead of what I want to do. Please pray for me. Anyone who went through something similar would be extremely helpful with this. I feel like I might have married the wrong man and could be missing out if I don’t go for this other guy. At the same time it seems like lies from Satan.

  • Lea July 7, 2011, 6:22 pm

    I have been married to the only man I have ever loved for almost 30 years. We have two daughters (grown) and adopted a special-needs son.

    My husband has been unfaithful many times and I knew it. I chose to forgive him (although I never confronted him) and did tell him that what he was doing was between him and God. The “what” I never said.

    A long story to this that actually has turned into a nightmare but to get directly to it: on April 26, 2011 he threw me from our home. He promptly sent my son to my mothers in another city (and my mother isn’t where he should be). He has said my son comes home to visit on weekends but my neighbors tell me different.

    My husband will NOT communicate with me in any manner People have told me that if a man does this, he has already moved on and I should give up hope for a reconciliation.. I know God can heal and certainly can heal our marriage.

    My husband is an unbeliever and I am a Christian writer. I have prayed for my husband every day. Now I pray that God will touch his heart and soul, lead him to Him and turn him back to me

    I ask for prayer (I need mighty prayer warriors interceding on my behalf. I do not believe this is an accident’ it is indeed spiritual warfare because satan can hurt us through others and satan certainly has taken EVERYTHING I have ever cherished and loved away from me.). Up until two weeks ago, I lived in my car. Really.

    I have no money and some might say the only reason I want him back is to get back home. I do want to go back home but home is only temporary here on this earth. I want my husband back.

    Thank you very much.

  • Mary June 4, 2011, 6:12 pm

    Hello. I’m asking for prayers to be lifted up for Paul. I ask that he be givin the forsight to come to decisions that will better his life. I ask that his fears be swept away upon angel’s wings and leave him with an open heart and mind. Pray that anything of evil intent upon his heart, body, mind and soul is cast aside and not allowed to influence him. Let him see past evil tempations. I ask for some relief for the current stress he is going thru…relief as in a happy ending or a mutal happy agreement. I ask him not to be afraid of his heart’s desires and request that he look deep and find out what truly matters to him and what he knows he can count on. I ask to keep him safe and give him the tools he needs to get past this part of this life will all the courage, not fear, he has. Let him follow through and fight and go and get what he realizes he wants. Thanks for praying. God’s blessings to all.

    Please pray for my marriage…my wife is breaking our marriage covenant…i know that the holy spirit is moving in her heart because 2 months ago she was done with me and didn’t love me anymore…and this past week she called me out of the blue and we talked in person for hours and she committed once again to work on our marriage and to do it God’s way but since then she claims i am pushing her to much and we have taken a step back…Pray that God holds her to her commitment and comes into her life like a hurricane …She is so confused right now and she knows what is right but there is an intense battle against sinful nature and Gods statutes in her life…this is what she is struggling with and Pray for me to have patience with her …everything that i am reading in the scripture is pointing towards restoration…just please pray that God works in her heart and destroys the wickedness that has surrounded her and is even in her now…I love her as christ loves the church!

    Please pray for all illegal activities being carried out by my x husband and family to be investigated by the top authorities and for a full God inspired outcome. Pray for the doors of the media to open on all of the works of my x and his associates especially the man sitting in my x old seat and for the truth to be on the lips of all those involved. Pray for the planes which have come back against us to end, and that we are set free. It is very difficult at my age to withstand the degree of abuse against us. Please pray for God to save our lives, and for full and total restoration for all that has been stolen off us. Thank you and God bless Marie

  • David December 8, 2010, 3:26 am

    Last month my girlfriend and I broke up but have since reunited after learning that she is now pregnant with our child. I ask that God may restore our relationship and that the Holy Spirit may help her forgive me and keep me loyal and honest to her, so that we may some day get married. I pray that God may also help us finding a decent vehicle, a place to stay and employment for me in my girlfriend’s hometown for financial stability before the birth of our baby.

    Ultimately, may God’s will be done in this situation!

  • Colton November 29, 2010, 3:45 pm

    We will definitely be praying for Grace!!

  • Colton November 29, 2010, 3:44 pm

    @Chris I will definitely be praying for you Chris. We all make mistakes, and there are consequences to those mistakes, but no matter how big or small the failure, one thing remains: you are loved by Jesus. He came to this earth to die in YOUR place. There is nothing you have done (or could do) that would make him change his mind! Also, if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). If you have done the previous, God is JUST and HAS forgiven you. I read the following scripture yesterday, and I hope you find it encouraging: “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever”. – Psalm 73:26

    I pray that you find your strength in God and God alone. Know that He will never give up on you, and ultimately that you are loved by him deeper than words can express, and nothing can change that.

  • Chris November 29, 2010, 9:17 am

    Please lift me up in prayer, I feel like giving up on life, my faith isn’t where it should be, I have done things that I regret, but I have ask God to forgive me, and I have repented of my sins, but I am a leader in the church, and there are those in the congregation who don’t believe in forgiveness, there is one person in particular who has vowed to destroy me. I thought I was strong, but at this point I feel that my faith isn’t up to the task to help me endure. Please pray for my strength in The Lord

    I am calling out to all of God’s chosen prayer warriors! I special friend’s father has been in a head on collison. He was driving home from Alabama and the driver of a semi fell asleep and crashed in to him. His name is Garry. They had to use the Jaws of Life to remove him from the vehicle. They rushed him to Macon and he is currently on a ventilator. He has several broken bones, has encountered some heart problems because of this, and is having breathing trouble. I am just asking that God place a special touch on Garry’s body and heal him and his family. I just that he grow in his relationship with Jesus Christ because of this and I ask that he will come out of this a new person. If it be God’s will, I ask that he would be hwealed from these injuries and sent home fully recovered. I kow God will help him through this and that everything happens for a reason. I just pray that Garry is fully healed to the maximum extent. I am praying that my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be with the family through these difficult times and pain and unaswered questions. I love my Lord and I give Him all the glory in every outcome of the situation. Just please keep Garry in your prayers.

    Please pray for my brother Matthew. Last year, he went into the hospital with phnmonia. While in the hospital, he got staff infection in his lungs. the infection damaged his lungs so badly that he will have to be on oxygen for the rest of his life. He is 23. He was in his last semester of college. and now his insurance will not pay for his portable oxygen, only his home oxygen. So we are having a benefit yard sale on Sept. 24th and 25th. Hopefully, we will raise enough money to buy him a portable oxygen condenser. They are $4000.00 Please pray for us.

    Please pray for my husband and marriage. He just got.back from Iraq about a month ago. He is a different person. He doesnt want to be married anymore. He wants to venture out as a single person but with no responsibilities. We have an 8 yr old son. He has moved out to go live with his mom. He has become so hateful and mean to me. He is filing this week and im just so hurt by all of mean behavior towards me like im the one that has left him. Please pray for him and that God turns his heart around and realize the mistake he is making. I want my old husband back.

  • Cindy August 20, 2010, 2:55 pm

    After 28 years of marriage my husband has cheated and I left him. I said ugly, hurtful things to him , very ugly things and did ugly things to him out of anger and spite. I have since changed my mind, and don’t want a divorce. I have also apologized to him for everything I said and did to him and have taken it to Christ at the alter and asked for His forgiveness. Now my husband says he doesn’t know what he wants, he can’t get passed the ugly things I said, feels that I cheated on him and says he can not forgive me for that. I want my husband back, I want to stay married and live out my life with him. Please pray God will soften his heart towards me, that he will forgive me, and that all bitterness, anger, hatered, pride, selfishness and whatever other strong hold is keeping him from coming home vanishes.

  • Chiara August 5, 2010, 4:39 am

I realised too late just how much I love this man and want to spend the rest of my life with him. Please pray that Gabriele may let go of past resentments, fears and doubts and give us another chance. I will respect, honour, appreciate and take care of this man with all my heart and soul. I am in so much pain and have been for 5 months now; please God help relieve the pain and daily angst I feel; I can’t take much more of this. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ- Amen.

  • KDS July 3, 2010, 11:56 am

    I need prayer right now as my now-ex broke off our relationship unexpectedly. He needs to get his life straight, as do I.. but this is really taking a toll on me. It is hard when one day my-ex just decided to end everything and stop talking completely; when I do not agree with this at all. This is an all-time new low to my self-worth. Just pray that I will not turn bitter towards him, or God, and that if it is His will, we will end up back together, or at least friends. Thanks

    God bless


  • RCM/ACM May 10, 2010, 9:51 am

    Please pray for me today. My husband has filed for divorce and I am getting ready for the legal procedure. Please pray that God would take my marriage into His hands and do His will. Please pray for me that whatever the outcome I will not be bitter, angry, or unforgiving to my husband, but have compassion, forgiveness, and unconditional love for him, because he is first a child of God, and then my husband.
