When Jesus heals the mother-in-law of Peter He shows the power of intercession. God invites us into the divine equation by making our prayer heard.

Do I see my prayer of intercession as an opportunity to cooperate in God’s work? When I pray, am I enriched despite how God responds?

O gracious God, I thank you for the gift of prayer. I am especially blessed to be able to pray for others. May my prayers of intercession help others and enrich me as a disciple.
