In order to love God’s people we are going to have to pray for God’s people. Prayer brings us into agreement with God. Our love for God should motivate us to pray for God’s people. When we pray for others, we get closer to them because it changes our hearts towards them.
If we are going to pray for God’s people we have to know what prayer is. Prayer is communicating with God, it is communicating with God through Jesus and prayer is the children of God communicating with their Father. The end result of effective prayer is not getting the answer we want but to receive His peace.
