When You Pray For Your Friends

Posted on Posted in devotions

“And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before” Job 42:10.

Please read that Scripture again, but this time read it slowly.

My sister, it was when Job prayed for his friends that the Lord turned his situation around, and gave him twice as much as he had before. The Lord will turn things around for you when you pray for her. I know she didn’t respond the way you wanted her to respond. The Lord will turn things around for you when you pray for him. I know you gave him your heart, and he walked all over it. The Lord will turn things around for you when you pray for them. I know they didn’t treat you like real sisters are supposed to. They talked about you and turned their backs.

But I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, “Pray for every friend in your life, both old and new. For where I am taking you, my daughter, you can’t afford to have any bitterness or resentment in your heart toward anyone. Your breakthrough is tied to your fervent prayers for those who hurt you. As you pray from your heart for them, I will turn your captivity as I did with Job. I will bless you with twice as much as you had before. I will reward you, says the Lord. I will be greatly glorified in your life!”

Prayer: Yes, Lord. I hear you. With everything in me Lord I ask that you bless my friends, old and new. I ask that you forgive them. They don’t know how deeply their actions affected me. Forgive them Lord. Bless them with your love, your grace and your mercy. Give them a heart to know you more. Protect them Lord and surround their families with your love. Help them to fulfill your divine purpose and plan for their lives. Heal them Lord the same way you’re healing me. Love on them Lord the same way you’re loving on me. Touch them Lord the same way you’re supernaturally touching me. Be glorified in their lives in a great way, and use me to bless them. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Good job my sister. I know that was tough, but good job. God is pleased.
