Praying with Others

How often do you pray with others? It’s easy to forget to pray with others or it may seem awkward, but I think it’s an important part of a healthy prayer life-style.

Praying with others is a powerful thing. In Matthew 18 (verse 20) Jesus says, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” I also find that praying with others brings you closer to them.

Going to your Father together is a wonderful, exciting thing, but sometimes it might seem a little strange or even scary to pray in front of others. Sometimes things like that only go away with time, but just remember that you shouldn’t worry what others think. It’s God you’re praying to.

If there isn’t already a prayer group at your school or church try starting one. Invite whoever wants to to meet once or twice a week to pray. Or you could try going on a prayer walk where you go for a walk and pray at the same time. There are lots of different ways to pray with others. But how you do it isn’t important as long as you do pray.

Be courageous and try praying with your friends, the results will be incredible!
