Who Is Praying You Through the Storm?

One by one, I heard from friends and family after Hurricane Irma passed by them.

“We’re ok. Thanks for praying.”

“It looks like we might have a couple windows broken, but we are safe. Thanks for praying.”

“We don’t know the extent of the damage, but we are all safe. We sure do appreciate the prayers.”

“We won’t have power for several days, but that’s such a small thing compared to what others are facing. Thanks for praying.”

“Our home is intact. We knew you were praying. Please continue praying for our neighbors who have lost both of their cars.”

Our home is gone, but we are safe. Thank you for praying through the storm with us.”

Each and every one of those I heard from had an overwhelming message to send: Thank you for praying us through this storm.

This one was a no-brainer. We saw the storm approaching. We saw the danger. We were helpless to do anything but pray.

So we prayed.

As my friends, one by one, shared their relief that they knew they were not alone when the storm was at its worst because people were praying, God reminded me that this is how life is supposed to be done. Life is filled with storms, and the aftermath of those storms – and yet we are so slow in asking others to pray for us during those times.

Then I turned inward and thought, when life rages against me, why do I not rally the prayer warriors to storm the gates of heaven on my behalf? Are you guilty of this, too? If you are, I’m here to tell you that you are doing yourself a great disservice. Harm, even. The body of Christ is here to hold us up when we can’t hold up ourselves.

In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.

Ephesians 6:18 (MSG)

So I challenge you – the next time you have the smallest inkling that a storm is brewing, reach out to those warriors who stand ready to do battle for you. Have a trusted group of friends, blast it on social media, or if it’s intensely personal, call your local church and ask for prayer.

Ask.

For.

Prayer.

It’s what will get us through the storm and the aftermath.
