I often pray will I am driving, especially if i am by myself. I love to turn off the radio and just have a quiet time of talking with YHVH God. As I pray the Spirit brings people to my mind to lay before Him in prayer. Yesterday, as I was praying through those I love, I became amazed that I am so blessed to know so many different people. Below is a list of people I personally know and have the privilege to pray for. AS you read my list, you will see that not all the people I love and pray for do I agree with. In fact, many people in my life i do not agree on things with, but I love them even though I do not always agree with them. See if you made the list.
I love someone who is Catholic, I love someone who is Mormon, I love someone who is a Jehovah’s Witness, I love some who is a Baptist, and a Nazarene, and some one who attends a non denominational church. I love someone who doesn’t attend church at all. I love an atheist, and I love a creationist. I love someone who believes in evolution, and even someone who doesn’t believe in dinosaurs. I love someone who lives a homosexual lifestyle. I love someone who is married, I love someone who is divorced. I love someone who waited to have sex after marriage, I love someone who isn’t. I love someone who believes in sharing the gospel with words, I love someone who believes our lives are our witness. I love a democrat, and i love a republican, I even love someone who doesn’t believe in being apart of this government system at all. I love someone who drinks alcohol and i love someone who abstains from it. I love someone who chews tobacco, and I love someone who smokes cigarettes, and I even love someone who smokes marijuana. I love someone who celebrates Christmas, and I love someone who doesn’t. I love someone who keeps the Biblical feasts, and many who don’t. I love someone who keeps the Sabbath on the seventh day, and I love someone who attends Sunday worship services. I love someone who is faithful to an unfaithful spouse, I love someone who is an unfaithful spouse. I love a single parent who does the best they can, and I even love a parent that has neglected to be a parent. I love a homeschooler, and i love a public schooler, and I love a college student, and I love a person who choose not to go to college.
There are so many more people that I have the privilege to love and pray for daily.
You see I love these people cause YHVH God first loved me, and He gave me His love for each and everyone of these people. I have been blessed to know many, many different people in my life. Just because i don’t always agree with the choices people I love make, doesn’t mean i don’t still love them. The Bible says to love what YHVH loves, and to hate what YHVH hates. So it is true I hate sin, but I love people, even sinners, just like He does. Thank goodness He loves me in my sin too.
May YHVH God call to each of these people on my list and draw them to His side and teach them to walk in HIs Ways. And may He do the same for you today, too.
