The Prayers of Others

Jesus has prayed for us. Have we responded to that prayer and accepted its effectiveness? The deep value of his prayer for us lies in the Christliness that characterized every effort he made on behalf of mankind. Referring to his disciples, he said, "Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word." John 17:20; His prayer was universal, and we can gratefully acknowledge and respond to the pure blessing it carries.

Prayer that is rich with the Christ—filled with the certainty of God's ever-present goodness—is not restricted by time or space, person or place. It is an abundant and constant blessing to the receptive heart. We can be healed, uplifted, sustained as we recognize, accept, and trust Jesus' prayer for us, endowed with Christly power. We can do more. We can follow his example and pray earnestly for all mankind. Then each spiritually thirsty individual, especially as he turns receptively to this reservoir of good, is blessed.
