Praying or Prayed for You?

“Nowadays, just about everyone says “I’m PRAYING for you”—whether or not they’re godly or mean it. If not an outright lie, the phrase is now a cliché in our verbal and written communications. At best, it’s a declaration of intent—a wish we conveniently forget. In contrast, “I’ve PRAYED for you” is more meaningful, especially when it’s from a godly person we trust. Jesus is trustworthy. He has both PRAYED for us and is PRAYING for us. He’s more than godly. He’s God. His prayers are effective because He’s the Petitioned Petitioner.” -Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
