Why Aren't We Praying For Others?

I admit it. I get really frustrated about certain topics. I get frustrated and then I voice my opinion "OPENLY" with others. Too many times my mouth works against the Kingdom. I can be a loudmouth and extremely abrasive. I can say things the wrong way. Very little honey and a whole lot of vinegar rolls out of my mouth. Will you pray for me about that? Thanks. Oops, I slid into today's topic: "Why Aren't We Praying for Others?" Why aren't we asking others if we can pray for them? Why aren't we asking others what we can pray about for them? When you walk up to someone and ask, "Can I Pray for You?", or "What Can I Pray About For You?" it absolutely knocks them out. They can't believe that someone would actually take the time to ask them this question. The next step is where "the rubber meets the road". In my opinion, when they say "yes" you need to pray for them "NOW". Not later on, tomorrow or next week. Pray with them and Pray for them "NOW". This will also amaze folks when you grab them by the hand or put your arm on their shoulder and pray for them right away.

A Christian radio station in Seattle, WA is doing it (Listen to clip below). How about you and I?


My company, The Broadcast Team (, has helped a Christian Radio Station in Seattle, WA deliver "prayer" messages (listen to actual clip above) to the answering machines and voice mail of targeted households. The response has been overwhelming. As a matter of fact, the station is getting ready to do it again within the next few weeks. This would also be a great idea for your church. Send me an email or give me a call if you'd like more information. Email: Phone: 1-800-353-1420 ext. 171. Ask for Mike Ellis.
