For the Prayers of Others

copyright Bob Hostetler

Abba, thank you for the prayers of others on my behalf,
those times when someone's prayer--unbeknownst to me-- has encouraged me, healed me, delivered me, or empowered me.

How many times in my life have I unknowingly been saved because someone--somewhere--prayed for me?

How many prayers have turned back some disaster that awaited me?

How many moments have been shot through with blessing and loveliness because someone spoke my name to you?

Whether close or distant,
from a friend or stranger,
long or short,
thank you for them all.
How I will rejoice in eternity to see the record of all who have prayed for me, and how much I owe to them.
