Never stop praying, especially for others.
(Ephesians 6:18; CEV).
I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them (1 Timothy 2:1; NLT).
Pray for those you read about,
And everyone you see;
For those you only hear about,
And people on TV.
Pray for those you pass each day,
And everyone you greet;
For those who stop to chat with you,
And all who never speak.
Pray for those you’re glad to know,
And all you’d rather shun;
For those who want to put you down:
Yes, pray for everyone.
Pray for all your family;
For those you trust as friends;
And pray for all your enemies
Until your life here ends.
Ask the Lord to bless each one
With faith, hope, love, and health;
Then, when you’ve prayed for all the world,
Pray, lastly, for yourself.
Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last,
and the servant of all (Mark 9:35; NIV).
