The Promise of Prayer

How many times do we tell someone, “I will pray for you”? Do we remember to pray? Hopefully, the answer is yes.

But my own experience is that I often go away and forget – or neglect – the promise to pray.

How about developing the practice of praying on the spot? The moment you hear someone’s need, take it to prayer. Right there. Right then.

You can still come back to this prayer request, but at least the pledge to pray has been initially fulfilled. Having prayed over the need once could even help you remember to pray the next time.

This simple practice has helped me keep the promise of prayer.

    Yes, great advice, pray when the request is made, do it in person with the one making the request. Establishing agreement on the request releases the power of Jesus.
