“Many will say they are loyal friends, but who can find one who is truly reliable?” Proverbs 20:6, NLT
It’s nothing to pray for someone at the beginning of their storm. However, what we all need is someone who is faithful to help pray us through to the very end. Where are our friends when we aren’t healed right away, or when our situation doesn’t change suddenly? Jesus is that kind of friend that intercedes for you faithfully. If no one else is patiently praying you through to victory, you can know that Jesus is. And until you meet a praying sister who is as faithful and committed to you as He is, be that for someone else. Be that friend that people can count on to stand with them in prayer. Even if it take years for them to receive their healing, their deliverance or breakthrough, be faithful in praying for them. This shows the character of Jesus and glorifies Him greatly.
Prayer: Father God, thank you for your faithfulness in my life. You walk with me through every trial. Help me be faithful just like you. Help me to not give up, but to continue praying and standing with others no matter how it looks or how long it takes. Help me stand with them until we receive victory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
