Supplication: Prayers for Others

One Minute Moment

Take your minute to lift up the people in your life who are struggling. Call them by name and ask God to bless them and to draw nearer to them today.

Philippians 2:3-4: Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

Prayer Starter:

Almighty and most merciful God, we remember before you all poor and neglected persons whom it would be easy for us to forget: the homeless and the destitute, the old and the sick, and all who are suffering.

Lord, I lift up the people who’s struggles are visible and the people in my life who I know are in pain. I recognize there are so many in my midst who are silently struggling and I never see their anguish. Lord, give me eyes to see all the suffering around me and the courage to extend Your love and grace in all the ways I can.

Speak to God in your own words about the specific people in your life who you know are suffering. Call them by name and lift them up to God now...
