Many times Paul asked the churches of his time to pray for him (see Ephesians 6:18-19; Colossians 4:3; 2 Thessalonians 3:1). Why? Why must we ask someone to pray for us or with us? Does not God hear the prayers of each one of his children?
You should want others to pray for you for at least 2 reasons:
- The prayers of others strengthen your prayer times.
- Others see factors you may fail to see.
Unified prayer is more powerful than individual prayer. Praying together demonstrates that we are God’s people.
