14 Sep Prayer Generousity
We all have our own prayer needs and so many times we seem to lack the time to pray for all our needs let alone praying for that of praying for others. A giving lifestyle however means that we make sure to pray for others even while pressed with our own needs. If we give prayer, we will receive prayers to God from others on our own needs too, and answers too. What we sow we reap…
Remember Job? He prayed for his friends and got his own prayers answered, we must learn to be generous in our prayer times, it is not only a great thing to do, it is a requirement.
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 1Timothy 2:1

Sometimes a more structured prayer style can help with this. For example, praying a Benedictine daily office, even if it’s used as a framework to pin your own prayers onto, has prompts for praying for personal needs, the Church and its mission, the needs of the world and so forth.
Another style of prayer involves working through a psalm, and applying it successively to yourself, your family, your Church and community, and the World.
I’ve found the book Kneeling with Giants by Gary Neal Hansen to be a great resource to learn some of these other types of prayers I’d never know about before.

There are so many ways to effectively extend prayers for others. I would look for the book. Thanks a lot coming by Claudia. Have a super blessed weekend!
