Pray with Others

We are instructed over and over in the Bible to release our worries to God through prayer. The Bible also confirms there is great power in praying with others. Not only does it encourage the person being prayed for to hear their plea going up to heaven on their behalf, but it is also a great privilege to return the favor and pray for someone else. Praying for another allows us to connect with the Holy Spirit in a different way and conveniently takes our mind off your own personal struggles. If this scares you to pray out loud, remember prayers do not need to be long, poetic or eloquent, only honest. It may be awkward at first, but you will be blessed and amazed how praying with a spouse, friend, colleague can launch you into new ground in your battle against worry. Be bold and find someone to pray with on this "Not Gonna Worry" Wednesday.
