I was fervently praying for a couple people. I had been praying for them for a while, but on this particular day, I was fervent. I felt an urgency. With every prompt, I asked God to give them his presence and the preparation they needed for what was next.
As the day continued, I found an overwhelming sense of God’s presence, and I began to see his preparation leading up to that day and the preparation he was giving me for the coming days.
I was praying on behalf of someone else, yet in the process, he pointed the blessings toward me. I trust he also provided for the others, but I was reminded of his attention and care.
I certainly don’t pray for others to receive something for myself. But there have been so many times I have seen him working in my life through the prayers I have for others. It is almost as if the position of humble prayer is susceptible to listening and receiving.
I thank God and trust him.
