I have always wondered how that works: praying for people! People will ask me to pray for them, people will ask me to pray for a friend of theirs that I don’t know, or I know of a friend who needs prayer desperately. It has happened that the list was overwhelmingly long that I really didn’t know how to go about it. It seemed impossible to pray for everyone. I have always been sensitive to the fact that I never wanted to promise people I’d pray when I wasn’t sure I could. And I wondered if people would really pray when I heard them say: “I’ll pray for you” while passing me in the hallway. Would people really, really pray when they said they would?
And then I met Tim. And with him came his way of praying. Tim keeps a journal and he showed it to me in our early days. In there is a longggg list of people he prays for on a daily basis. And I got to see how he has his time with God during the day and he really, really prays for all those people faithfully. I was impressed, and love is written all over it. He would also bring many of those people before the Lord again in our night time prayer, adding more people to it as they would come to mind.
