Recently I was talking to a dear friend. She’s going through a hard time right now. It was heartbreaking to listen to her. She’s feeling abandoned and hopeless. So, I said the best thing I could think of – I’m praying for you.
We’ve all been there. The pain is so bad, and we’re so shattered spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally that we almost feel paralyzed. Even to the point where we can’t pray. We’re at the end of our rope, just hanging on by a thread that seems ready to snap at any moment. I’ve been there, and I know you have.
In those moments it is such a blessed relief to know that I don’t have to pray. That God has others who will stand up for me. He understands our human frailties. He knows that sometimes we simply can’t pray – that’s when He puts a thought of us in someone else’s heart and mind. They then take up the task of praying and interceding in our behalf.
A beautiful hymn has been written about this. I’m sharing it with you today hoping it will bless and encourage you.
Someone Is Praying For You
Have the clouds round you gather’d in the midst of the storm,
Is your ship tossed and battered, are you weary and worn?
Don’t lose hope, someone’s praying for you this very day,
And peace be still is already on the way.
When it seems that you’ve prayed till your strength is all gone,
And your tears fall like raindrops all the day long;
He cares and He knows just how much you can bear,
He’ll speak your name to someone in prayer.
Someone is praying for you, someone is praying for you,
So when it seems you’re all alone and your heart will break in two;
Remember, someone is praying for you.
