“The Lord restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends” —Job 42:10
June 20, 2012
What I learned from this devotion is that I don’t always have to look after myself. I don’t always have to be so worried about letting God know about my personal requests because God knows. It doesn’t mean that I should completely abandon praying for personal needs but I ought to make time to pray for others as well. Intercessory prayer is just as important as personal prayer. Just like in the verse, Job prayed for his friends and God answered by restoring the things that Job lost.
A worldly example of this is when I have a marshmallow and my younger brother wanted one too and I chose to give him mine. My father will see this and he, being a good father will reward me by giving me my own marshmallow. I hope that made sense to whoever is reading this because this made sense to me. lol
I guess what I am trying to get it is don’t think too much of the things I need but also make room to pray for the needs of others.
