Other Focused

As a saved soul, the real business of your life is intercessory prayer. Whatever circumstances God may place you in, always pray immediately that His atonement may be recognized and as fully understood in the lives of others as it has been in yours. Pray for your friends now, and pray for those with whom you come in contact now.

Today's devotional is really quite simple. Very straightforward. We are to pray for others. We should not be focused on our own wants, desires, needs, problems to the point of never thinking of others. I am very self centered quite often. I think of all of my problems, struggles, agenda, what's next...etc. when do I stop and think about others?

We have the hope of salvation. Therefore, we have nothing to worry about no matter what this world throws at us. This should completely free me up to focus on other people.

The example for today is Job. After all he went through, he interceded for his friends. (Job 42:10)
