Mark 7:24-30 tells us that Jesus in you is the one who will pray for others when you intercede for them. Therefore, do not worry about whether or not you will be effective if people ask you to pray for them.
Originally a live Facebook event, this video was a reflection for Thursday of the 5th Week of Ordinary Time (February 8, 2018).
A lot of times we feel we’re unworthy to pray. There’s always someone out there that is a much, much better prayer than we are. We don’t have the right words. We can’t quote Scripture, chapter and verse. This people – they pray so much better. They’re so much more eloquent. You and I are both children of God, sons and daughters of the Most High. And our Heavenly Father listens to you as well as he listens to me….
You can pray. You don’t have to worry about all the fancy words being eloquent. You can pray. How often do people come up to you and ask for your prayers? I mean they’re recognizing something in you. They’re recognizing Jesus in you. They’re coming to you because they’re coming to the Jesus in you. And that’s where our faith needs to lie. That Jesus within us is the one who does the praying.
