Someone Prays For You Always

Does it ever feel like your prayers bounce off the ceiling? There have been times I’ve wondered if my prayers make a difference. It seems everyone goes through experiences when it’s easy to be discouraged. Disappointments and injustices can knock the wind out of you. But little things still matter – like receiving a text, a notecard, a phone call, or even just a hug with the message “I’m praying for you often.” Knowing someone prays for you really helps. And it takes things to a new level to remember – someone prays for you always!

You Need Prayer!

The way things are in the world right now, we all need prayer. A person committed to pray on your behalf is a precious gift. I hope you have someone praying for you. Such a blessing is rare. In today’s busy world, people are limited in availability, memory, and understanding of your life. And few pray.

Does this mean prayer has lost its value? By no means! Prayer is one of those things that possesses eternal value. And just like you need daily food and water, you need prayer. It’s just that important.

Jas. 5:16 says, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”  Something about prayer changes people, It weaves and channels situations. And prayer opens doors.

Someone Prays For You Always

I’m sure you’ve heard the words, “I’ll pray for you.” Some who promise to pray will absolutely follow through and lift you to God on a regular basis. Other times, you know the person who says those words has no intention of following through. In some circles, such sentiments have become the thing to say. But empty promises lack power.

The power of a promise to pray is earth-moving. Why would that be? It’s because on the other end of simple, sincere prayer is a God who hears, values faith, and answers prayer. Even when people let you down, you can know there is one person who never lets you down. This someone prays for you always. Do you know who that person is?


Before we identify that special person, just a few words on intercession. The act of intercession is the act of taking up the needs of someone else and presenting them to God. This investment is highly valued by God. And He invites you to partner with Him in prayer – for yourself and for others.

Rom. 8:26 says, “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit, Himself, intercedes for us through wordless groans.” If you are a follower of Jesus, this Spirit lives inside you.

Whether others keep their promise to pray or not, you can be assured prayer is being lifted for you continually. So, who is doing that?

Jesus Prays For You Always

Jesus is holy, set apart, exalted, and super powerful. He is your continual Companion, Friend, and Counselor. Because He is a human person like you, Jesus knows loneliness, sadness, disappointment, mistreatment, alienation, and suffering. This unique combination makes Him a perfect Intercessor for you. And He is interested in every detail of your total life. Yes, Jesus is praying for you – always!

Because He loves you, Jesus engages His creative attention, discernment, tender kindness, power, and His giving abilities. Let’s talk about each of these:

  1. Jesus applies His creative attention to help you have a healthy heart and habits. He has lots of fresh ideas and knows exactly where to apply them. As you yield to Him, He enables you to overcome. Are you open to His creative attention?
  2. His discernment cuts through deceptive enemy schemes and through your problems to accomplish His great purposes for your good. Are you open to His discernment?
  3. His tender kindness touches you and others in a way that accomplishes His plans for your life . . . and for theirs. Are you open to receive His tender kindness?
  4. Jesus’ power turns His Word into reality – your reality – as you trust and obey the Scriptures. His power is real! Are you open to His power?
  5. Jesus’ “giving abilities” provide you with wisdom, guidance, protection, and creative ideas. Are you open to Jesus’ “giving abilities?”


There is no one more suited or more willing to perfectly help you through each day than Jesus!

Were you aware Jesus is that invested in you? In addition to His resources just mentioned, here are ways Jesus engages to pray for you:

  • Intercedes (prays) all the time for you. Rom. 8:34 says, Jesus “is at the right hand of God . . . interceding for us.”
  • He is available 24/7.
  • His memory is perfect.
  • Jesus’ attention to detail is impeccable.
  • He understands every situation you find yourself in, no matter how complicated or confusing it may have become.
  • Jesus loves you with everlasting love. No one ever has – or ever will – love you as perfectly as God.


Jesus is doing it right now!   He’s praying for you!

Saving You

Not only does Jesus pray for you with deep understanding and invested energy. He is able to save you completely from your sins and save you in every life situation you must navigate.

Saving You – From Sin

First, let’s unpack “saving from sin.” If you have trusted Jesus for forgiveness, His blood covers every sin you have committed. And it covers every future sin you will commit if you confess it and are repentant. (1 John 1:9)

Saving you from sin also means you trust Jesus to give you eternal life. It doesn’t mean He will take you out of the sinful world yet. You will live in this broken world until you die or Jesus returns. And His timing in both those scenarios is perfect and good. Our future is exciting!

Saving You – In Every Life Issue

Second, let’s unpack “saving in every life situation.” What exactly does that mean?

Jesus is saving you in each issue you must face and manage. This does not mean taking you out of the issue (necessarily). You get to see His grace and power made alive in multiple ways as you trust Him to help you in your problems and difficulties, and as you obey His Word.

God’s Word says in all things, in the nitty-gritty, in the blow-outs and disappointments, in trials and discouragements, in your sufferings – you are more than a conqueror. This includes habits and patterns you need to let go of.

Rom. 8:37 says, “In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”

The question? In what things/situations will you be helped with the ability to overcome? The answer: In all things!

Prayer Packs A Punch!

Yes, prayer packs a punch! Every sincere prayer grabs God’s attention. It could be offered by a person great or small, written on lovely stationary or out-of-your-back-hip-pocket on crumpled paper. It could be practiced or off-the-cuff, confident or desperate, words or just a thought. ALL prayers are precious to God. They are a sweet aroma on the altar in His very throne room! Check out Rev. 8:3-4.

We can safely conclude every person on earth has at least one person praying for them. Jesus! If you decide to join and pray for yourself, that makes two people praying for you. And if you have another person or two praying, you are blessed, indeed. Sometimes, you have a whole group lifting you in prayer.

Well, what should we conclude about the idea that someone prays for you always? I think it’s this: get ready for the impact – because prayer packs a punch. 

You Can Pray For Others In Their Need

Scripture holds the precious gift of prayer in highest esteem. God is literally leaning forward to hear the prayers of His children.

Lifting one another’s needs is what Jesus commanded us to do. Jas. 5:16 also urges followers of Jesus to pray for one another. Paul was another great intercessor. 2 Tim. 1:3 says, “I thank God, whom I serve, as my ancestors did, with a clear conscience, as night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers.”

We said everyone has one person praying for them (Jesus). Two, if they join Him and are praying for themselves. Why not join in prayer for someone and be part of their intercession support? Take part in packing a punch in another person’s life.

It’s Time For Application

It’s time for you to make some decisions. So, here are some questions for you:

  • Will you turn to Jesus and draw close by faith?
  • Will you trust Him in all your life situations and live in His power?
  • And will you promise to pray? You need it, and so do others.


  1. Jas. 4:8a says, “Come near to God and He will come near to you.” That’s a promise, my friend.
  2. Heb. 10:22a says, “Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings . . . “


Why not draw close to the Someone who prays for you always? Draw close to Jesus. And He will in turn draw close to you.

God’s Humor – Scripture Dissection

What situation comes to your mind when you hear that old saying – “God has a sense of humor?” I have numerous scenarios that come to mind. Oddly, it seems God’s humor is at play more often than we realize. And it’s a brilliant sense of humor. As humans, we try to develop a sense of humor, especially in teen years. And since we are made in God’s image, the quality of humor is there to be developed. I want to look at God’s humor as we continue Part 2 of our Scripture dissection of 1 Kings 18. This is exciting content. Read More …

Many people feel invisible today. Some work hard and long to do the right thing – often behind-the-scenes – not for recognition or glory, but because it must be done. As a result, many folks with noble commitment go unnoticed. You’ve likely felt invisible in your hard work, faithfully doing what God asks each day. And “they” don’t seem to notice. But God notices. In fact, He says – “I Am They.” Read More …
