Effective prayer includes prayer of petition. By praying for the needs of others, a Christian is living on the vocation to be an ambassador for Christ.
Prayer of petition should be at the heart of a disciple’s day. When I meet others, do I pray for them? Am I willing to speak to God on behalf of others?
Dear Jesus, hear my prayer this day for those I meet. May my orientation to others make following You attractive to those whom I meet today.
