I Will Pray

Almost everyday I have someone ask me, "Will you pray for me?" And I always say that I will. Yesterday I had two such requests and when I replied that I would, one woman said to me, "why do you always say yes? I don't even know you, yet you always say that you will pray."

I know that we are to pray for each other and when someone asks and I say that I will, then I will.
Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by ceasing to pray for you, and I will instruct you in the good and the right way. (1 Samuel 12:23 ESV)

Being a truck driver it isn't easy for me to find ways to be in service for The Lord, but I know that I must be, I need to be, for it is my desire to be pleasing. I want you to know that you can always come to me for prayer. I can do that. I will do that.
But I am not special. I do not have anymore of a direct link to the throne of a God than anyone else. And God will not answer a prayer that I pray any sooner or better than if someone else prays.
And I may let you down. Chances are, at some point I will fail in your eyes. 

But God promises that He will never fail you. He will never let you down. He wants YOU to come to Him. He will always be available to you. And He desires that you seek Him.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28 ESV)
