Pray for 5 people for a week
Write a list of five people and commit to praying for them every day for a week.
You can pick any five people you like; friends or enemies, old or young, Christian or not. You may want to choose people who you know are going through a hard time so you can be lifting their situation up in prayer during the week. Praying for others gives us the opportunity to get out of our own individual cocoon and focus our minds on other people. A generous prayer life can lead us to be more generous in other areas of our lives as well.
Everybody prays in different ways, so find something that works for you – whether it’s an hour in silence, or a single line prayer that you repeat over in your mind every time you brush your teeth.
