What do you pray most often for the people you love most? The question reveals an uncomfortable amount about us (and our prayers).

First, do we pray for those we love? Prayer is one of the most powerful, thoughtful, loving ways we can love anyone we love. Yet we still often struggle to persevere in prayer for others. With countless compelling reasons to pray — to ask the God of infinite power, wisdom, and love to move in the lives of our friends, family, and neighbors — we find a thousand excuses not to. What some of us need to hear most is simply a reminder to stop and pray for the ones we love.

But if we do pray for them, what we pray really matters. And we often ask God for less than we should. At least I know that I myself have sometimes asked for less than I should — for my wife, my son, my parents, my church family. When we think to pray for others we love, our minds can default to practical, earthly concerns — that God would guard or improve their health and safety, or that he would prosper what they do at work, or that he would protect our relationship with them, or for whatever other daily or weekly needs that immediately come to mind.

Prayers like these, while good and even important, fall short of the mountain-moving prayers we might pray — prayers like the apostle Paul prayed. If we prayed more like he did, and God answered, we wouldn’t be able to keep ourselves from praying more for the ones we love.

Why We Pray for Less

Tim Keller observes, “It is remarkable that in all of his writings Paul’s prayers for his friends contain no appeals for changes in circumstances” (Prayer, 20). Think about that. From his thirteen letters, we know literally dozens of ways Paul prayed for Christians, and yet he never asks God to change their circumstances. Yet that is what many of us pray for most.

Why do we default to smaller prayers for circumstances, rather than praying for the bigger, deeper, longer-lasting spiritual realities under what we see and experience? For many reasons, of course, but we can try to isolate a couple.

“Apart from the mercy of God and the prayers of others, any of us could be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.”

First, smaller prayers come easier. We naturally, even apart from knowing Christ, think (and worry) about health, work, safe travel, and relational conflict. It doesn’t take spiritual sensitivity to want a sick person to get well (or a healthy person to stay healthy). Even those who hate God may wish a good life for one another. Big, Paul-like prayers, however, do not come naturally. God-hating people do not stumble into prayers like these. To pray these prayers with real focus, desperation, and hope requires the Spirit to work that focus, desperation, and hope in us. He opens our eyes to the awesome and terrifying realities below our everyday circumstances.

Second, God’s answers to our biggest prayers are often slow and less visible. If we pray for someone to heal, they may get better in just days or weeks. If we pray for someone to travel safely, we know how God answered in a matter of hours. If we pray for a successful interview, we can find out very soon how it went. But if we pray for God to make a brother more like Jesus, we may not see real, reliable fruit for years. If we pray for God to protect our child from Satan and all his temptations, we likely will not witness thousands of ways he has done it. If we pray for God to keep our pastor faithful through to the end, we will not know for sure if, or how, he has done it until that man finally hears, “Well done, good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:23).

Big prayers require more grace, more faith, and more effort because spiritual realities do not naturally come to mind, and because the answers to bigger prayers are often harder to recognize — at least for now. For hundreds of thousands of years to come, though, we will taste and see and witness the preciousness of the big prayers we prayed — prayers that moved mountains in people’s hearts, causing earthquakes at their spiritual cores, and changing the course of their eternities.

Seven Daily Prayers

Because Paul wrote to churches, almost all of the prayers we have in his letters are for believers. We can be sure he prayed persistently and passionately, with many tears, for the lost (Romans 9:2–3; Philippians 3:18–19). But most of what we know about Paul’s prayer life centers on what he prayed for his brothers and sisters in the faith, including these seven big prayers — prayers we can regularly pray for the followers of Christ we love most.

1. Open their eyes even wider to you.

Prayer is one of the most powerful, most thoughtful, most loving things we can do for those we love. And the most powerful, thoughtful, and loving prayer we can pray for others is that they would enjoy more of God. Again, Keller writes, “Paul does not see prayer as merely a way to get things from God but as a way to get more of God himself” (Prayer, 21). Paul prays,

Because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened. (Ephesians 1:15–18)

“With countless compelling reasons to pray, we find a thousand excuses not to.”

Because he had heard of their faith, he prayed for them to see God. Do you pray like that for believers you love? Paul knew that we need supernatural inner strength to experience the breadth and length and height and depth of God’s love for us in Christ (Ephesians 3:16–19) — not just to receive it, but to experience it, and grow in experiencing it. We need fresh grace to enjoy God again today.

2. Fill their hearts with love for others.

If God has answered our first prayer for those we love, that grace will begin to show in their love for people.

It is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. (Philippians 1:9–11)

Paul appeals to God for this kind of extraordinary, contagious, full-to-overflowing love elsewhere as well (1 Thessalonians 3:11–13; Romans 15:5–6). He did not assume that followers of Christ would love one another well. He asked God to make them more and more loving.

It should be no surprise that these first two prayers echo Jesus’s two great commandments to love God and neighbor (Matthew 22:37–39). When we go to pray for our spouse, our children, our church family, our neighbors, these are two great pillar prayers: God, open their eyes wider and wider to you, and fill their hearts to overflowing with love for people.

3. Teach them the wisdom of your will.

Our prayers for one another should begin with a growing love for God, and an overflowing love for people, but Paul does not settle for those two great prayers. He climbs other mountains in prayer for those he loves. He prays for spiritual wisdom and understanding:

We have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. (Colossians 1:9–10)

We will not walk in a manner worthy of God merely because we want to. We need God to teach us how. That we want to and why we want to matter massively to God, but we still have to learn to walk. No matter how long we’ve been walking, we all are somewhere along the path to “fully pleasing,” encountering new opportunities and challenges each new day. However far along we are, the next steps require spiritual wisdom and insight, not just human discipline and resolve, so we pray and ask God for what we need to know now.

4. Give them boldness to speak about Jesus.

The commission Jesus left for us could not have been clearer (Matthew 28:19–20). We may forget it or neglect it in seasons of our lives, but it will not be because the charge is ambiguous. God calls every follower of Jesus to win followers for Jesus, and teach them to obey all that Jesus has said. To this end, Paul writes,

Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison — that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak. (Colossians 4:2–4)

“The most powerful, thoughtful, and loving prayer we can pray for others is that they would enjoy more of God.”

And he asks for prayer elsewhere “that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak” (Ephesians 6:19–20).

God acts in three miraculous ways to answer prayers like these. He first gives us words to say, then boldness to say them when we might be rejected (or worse), and lastly he opens the spiritual eyes of our hearers to see and understand the gospel of his Son. When we pray for fellow believers today, we can pray for the same gifts of grace to witness well.

5. Send them good friends in the faith.

Over and over again in his letters, Paul prays that God would allow him to be with other followers of Christ. For example:

What thanksgiving can we return to God for you, for all the joy that we feel for your sake before our God, as we pray most earnestly night and day that we may see you face to face and supply what is lacking in your faith? (1 Thessalonians 3:9–10; also Romans 1:9–10; 15:30–33)

Many of us, in the context of healthy churches, have never been so desperate for fellowship, never lingered late into the night praying earnestly to finally see believers face to face. We’re so used to seeing our church family Sunday after Sunday (and more), we may have forgotten just how vital fellowship is to the Christian life.

Apart from the mercy of God and the prayers of others, however, any of us could “be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin” (Hebrews 3:13) and wander off in love with this world (2 Timothy 4:10). So, one of the most important prayers we can pray for those we love is that God would give them a healthy, faithful church and a few godly, steadfast friends.

6. Protect them from enemies of their soul.

When we pray for God to grow our loved ones’ joy in him, and deepen their love for others, and embolden their words about Jesus, we need to know that they will meet resistance and hostility. Paul faced that kind of opposition everywhere he went, so he asked for prayer:

Brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored, as happened among you, and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men.                         (2 Thessalonians 3:1–2)

As we pray for one another, we remember that “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12). Satan and his armies do not attack randomly and sporadically, but specifically and relentlessly. One of the most effective ways to pray for our loved ones is to pray against the enemies of their souls.

We pray with Jesus, “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil” (Matthew 6:13). Not just me but us. Jesus teaches us to pray not only for our own interests — our own temptations, our own struggles, our own besetting sins — but to pray regularly and passionately for the interests of others, to count others even more significant than ourselves (Philippians 2:3) in our war against evil.

7. Make Jesus look good with their life.

Finally, pray that Jesus would be glorified in all that they do.

To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power, so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Thessalonians 1:11–12)

Paul wraps three great prayers in one. First, ask God to focus and purify their ambitions. These are not just any resolves, but resolves for good, and not just any work, but works of faith. Our prayers will help guard them from bad resolves and works of self.

“One of the most effective ways to pray for our loved ones is to pray against the enemies of their souls.”

Second, we ask God to give them not just strength for their work, but His strength for their work. If these resolves and works are going to glorify God, they must be “by his power,” not their own. We want divine energy and ability pouring through them while they work and serve.

Lastly, and most clearly, we need God to fulfill his work through them — to complete it and make it fruitful (Philippians 1:6, 11). In short, we need him to glorify himself in all that they (and we) do.
Royalty-Free Stock Motion Graphics & Animated Backgrounds ...Thank God for Grace You See

If God answers these prayers, we will see the fruit over time — and we should thank him as often as we see it. One of the best ways to stoke the fires of our big prayers for others is to praise God for what we see him doing in and through them.

This is the prayer Paul wrote as often as any other: “I thank my God for you.” Because your faith is growing (2 Thessalonians 1:3). Because you have loved the saints well (Ephesians 1:15–16). Because of your partnership in the gospel (Philippians 1:3–5). Because he has gifted you and given you greater knowledge of himself (1 Corinthians 1:4–7). Because the gospel is spreading through you (Romans 1:8). Because you have not lost your hope in Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 1:2–3).

How often do we take evidence of spiritual fruit for granted, thanking God instead for smaller, more-circumstantial blessings? The greater, more valuable, more lasting works of God (like the seven above) do not fit neatly into a day or week. To notice them, we have to be looking more closely and over months and years. But when we see, really see, the hands of God at work in the heart of someone we love, few realities will inspire our faith, intensify our joy, and strengthen our prayer lives like these answers to prayer.

5 Ways to Simplify Your Life

Make room for the things that really matter.

Source: Kinga/Shutterstock

I’ve spent the majority of the last two years living on a boat. Life on a sailboat has required me to think about what I actually need to be happy in life.

I discovered that having less stuff, fewer obligations, and more time makes room for the most important things. I have more space in my life for people I Love, things I appreciate, and opportunities I want to take.

And while living on a boat has lots of benefits, it definitely isn’t for everyone. But no matter where you live or what you do, you can take steps to simplify your life.

Here’s why simplifying your life is important – everything in your life takes up space. Whether it’s mental space, physical space, or calendar space, you only have so much room.

Everything you own, everything you do, and everyone you spend time with costs you something. And when you have an abundance of stuff, it costs you a lot.

Simplifying your life will give you more time, space, and energy. The more space you have, the freer you’ll be to truly enjoy everything. Here are five ways to simplify every area of your life.

1. Declutter your house.

Your environment affects how you feel physically and psychologically. Whether you waste time looking for misplaced items, or you grow overwhelmed every time you open your closet, having too much stuff wastes your resources.

A clean, organized space helps you feel more productive and energetic than when you’re living among heaps of clothes, stacks of papers, and piles of dishes.

When you have fewer items to worry about, you’ll feel lighter. You’ll also have the energy to care for the items that you keep. Start decluttering one room at a time, and see for yourself how much better you feel when you get rid of things you don’t need.

2. Get rid of bad mental habits.

Bad mental habits carry a lot of psychological weight. Feeling sorry for yourself, dwelling on the past, and giving away your power are just a few of the unhealthy habits that will drain your mental strength.

Clear the mental clutter and unnecessary chatter. Make space for healthier thinking habits – like gratitude, self-compassion, and realistic self-talk.

When you catch yourself engaging in toxic thinking habits, take a deep breath, remind yourself it’s not helpful, and proactively conjure up a more realistic inner dialogue.

3. Cut out toxic people.

Whether you have a friend who finds a problem for every solution or a cousin who calls every day to complain about how unfair the world is, negative people can take up a lot of space in your life.

While you shouldn’t cut people out of your life just because they’re going through hard times, setting healthy boundaries is important.

Even if you don’t spend much time together physically, the time you might invest into dreading a visit, combined with the time it takes to calm down after the visit, can take a toll.

Sometimes, the kindest thing you can do for yourself and for someone else is to say no or sever ties altogether. Cutting out toxic people frees up space for those who matter most in your life.

4. Take charge of your money.

It doesn’t matter how much money you have. If you’re not taking control of your financial situation, money will occupy too much space in your life.

Commit to taking charge of your money. Create a budget and establish clear goals, and your financial decisions will become much simpler.

You’ll spend less time, effort, and energy thinking about money once you’ve taken control of your income. There’s a sense of peace that comes with financial freedom.

5. Gain control of your time.

You can never earn more time. It’s your most valuable resource. Yet, it’s easy to waste time complaining, mindlessly scrolling through social media, or waiting for things to happen.

Don’t go through life being busy and passing time. Stop doing things that are wasting your precious minutes. Schedule time to do the things that matter most.

But don’t focus on doing – set aside some time for just being. Go for a walk, play with the kids, watch a sunset, and be in the moment.

Start Subtracting

Life is complicated sometimes, and simplifying things can feel overwhelming – which, of course, is exactly the opposite of what simplifying your life is all about. But you don’t have to change everything at once.

Start subtracting one thing from your Life every day. Get rid of some clutter, clear some mental space, carve an hour into your calendar – make some room somewhere so you can feel lighter and freer.

The less you own, the less you have, and the less time you invest into things you don’t want to do, the simpler Life becomes. And there’s a lot to be said for fully enjoying Life’s simplest pleasures to their fullest.

The Little Things - June 20, 2013 Ezine Sacred Journeys ...

27 Really Unextraordinary Things
Happy People Do Every Day


They compliment people, even strangers, with no motivation other than just being nice.


They let anger from the little things – traffic, long lines, loud people on the train – wash over them for a few seconds, and then they let it go.


They perform really simple acts of kindness, like paying for the coffee of the person behind them in the drive-thru, or letting someone go in front of them in line if they can tell that person is in a hurry.


And they never tell anyone else about these tiny acts of kindness.


They always try to take in beautiful views with their eyes first. There will always be time for pictures later.


They read. Books, articles, whatever makes them think.


They let themselves feel what they need to feel, instead of trying to bury their emotions.


They meditate. Because even if it’s challenging or tedious or boring sometimes, it’s worth it.


They make a conscious effort not to focus on what they’re going to say next when they’re talking to someone. They enjoy their conversations so much more that way.


They remember that just because they want something doesn’t mean they’re automatically entitled to it.


They pause for a few moments each day and focus on their breath – in through the nose, out through the mouth. It’s the simplest thing, but the sense of relief they feel afterwards is always soothing.


They actively relax – which means that instead of scrolling through their phone on the couch, only to look up and realize an hour has gone by, they actively make the choice to do something that rests and re-energizes their mind and body, whether that’s reading a book, taking a nap, eating their favorite snack while watching their favorite show, etc.


They ask questions about things that intrigue them.


They always say ‘thank you.’


They search for joy in the tiny things – hot cups of coffee, sitting on sunny patios, changing into warm socks after being out in the rain. Because the little things add up.


They take breaks from the internet. They may have come to terms with the fact that trying to live ‘off the grid’ is pretty impossible – but they still make sure that their lives have a healthy balance, and that social media only takes up a small part of the space in their brain.


They ask for help when they need it, whether that’s asking a taller person to reach the top item on a grocery store shelf or reaching out to a friend when they’re struggling with severe anxiety. Whatever it is, big or small, they let themselves ask for help.


They remind themselves that tomorrow is always a new day.


They apologize when they screw up.


They get enough sleep. Maybe not tons. But always enough.


They always try to say ‘yes’ if they sense that something will be good, educational, enlightening, comforting, or beneficial for them in anyway – even if they don’t feel like saying ‘yes.’


But they also care enough about their health and their well being to know when they need to say ‘no.’


They remember that all humans are complicated beings and that everyone has a side to them that most people don’t understand.


They especially remember this when they’re having to deal with someone they really don’t like. It dilutes their irritation and always helps them to be more compassionate.


They tell people they Love them.


They make other people feel seen, heard, and cared about.


They remember to look up, they remember to look around, they remember to be grateful that they’re alive.

25 Meaningful Ways You Can Help Ukraine

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine threatens more lives, here are some meaningful ways you can help.

By Khanyi Mlaba and Tess Lowery

Editor’s note: The situation in Ukraine is actively evolving, as are the needs of citizens in the country and neighboring regions. We will be keeping this list up to date with the evolving ways Global Citizens can help in the coming days and weeks.

The world was brought to a standstill as news broke on Feb. 24 that Russia had invaded Ukraine. Global Citizen released a statement condemning Russia’s attack on Ukraine and calling for all military action to cease immediately, as well as for humanitarian aid to be supported as the conflict unfolds.

Global Citizen has pulled together a list of things you can do to support the people of Ukraine wherever you are. 

Tweet Now:

Support the Ukraine Crisis Appeal

What to Know

President Putin’s invasion is putting civilians at risk, forcing families to flee, and disrupting essential supplies.

The UN is launching an urgent appeal for US $1.7 billion to deliver life-saving humanitarian support.

Call on governments and businesses to unite and pitch in to meet the target. Tweet now.

Who Is the Most Impacted?

According to UN data, in 2021 the crisis in Ukraine affected 1.5 million people half a million of whom are children and minors. As with any crisis, women, children, marginalized communities, and the poor will be those most affected. Ukrainian parents are already taking heartbreaking measures to protect their children including sending them into school wearing stickers identifying their blood types in case of bombings. 

There are many students from overseas who were studying in Ukraine and are now trying to leave. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba tweeted on March 2 that an emergency hotline has been established for African, Asian, and other students wishing to leave Ukraine (at +380934185684), working to ensure their safety and speed up their passage.

  1. Join a Peace Protest

If you’re following and keeping up to date with the ongoing situation on the ground, but you’re still wanting to do more and/or you don’t have the financial means to donate, consider joining demonstrators around the world  — from London to Tokyo — who have taken to the streets to protest Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Find your nearest demonstration here

  1. Take Action With Global Citizen

You can join Global Citizen in taking action in a few key ways. The first, is to show solidarity with Ukraine and the Ukrainian people, by sending our tweet highlighting that we must #StandWithUkraine and choose peace not war. Take action here.

The United Nations (UN) has launched an urgent humanitarian appeal for $1.7 billion to deliver life-saving humanitarian support. You can send an urgent tweet in support of the UN’s appeal, urging governments and businesses to support the people of Ukraine. Take action here. 

Meanwhile, 40 Ukrainian civil society organizations have come together with six urgent appeals for the world with the Kyiv Declaration, and you can take action to help them get heard. They request safe spaces to be provided for civilians, sanctions on Russian banks, support for local humanitarian responses, freezing the assets and revoking the visas of Putin and his cronies, defensive military assistance, and provision of equipment to track war crimes and ensure that all those responsible are one day brought to justice. Take action here to help amplify their appeal. 

Global Citizens based in the UK can also join us in calling on MPs to stand with people fleeing Ukraine and all refugees who need safety and protection, and vote against the Nationality and Borders Bill — also known as the “Anti-Refugee Bill”. The proposed bill would punish people that are seeking safety in the UK by stripping basic and essential protections. The UK government has announced its solidarity with Ukraine, and now it’s time to put those words into action by providing safe passage and protection to refugees. Take action by emailing your MP here.

UK-based Global Citizens can also join us and Make My Money Matter in urging UK pension funds to stop funding the Ukraine invasion. That’s because UK pension funds invest in lots of industries, and your pension could well be investing in weapons and Russian industry directly linked to the crisis in Ukraine without you knowing it. Take action by emailing UK pension providers here
