Cover Them in Prayer - Your Daily Forward Devotional

Cover Them in Prayer

May 19, 2020

Read 1 Timothy 2:1-4

“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”


Do you cover your loved ones in prayer? (Why or why not?)

Praying for your loved ones helps you put them in God’s hands, not only during a crisis, but in everyday situations as well. Besides your own prayers for them, join with a prayer partner. Two close, faithful prayer partners have been a great source of strength to Dana; one lives 250 miles away, but once a week at 6:15 in the morning they meet on their laptops for a powerful time of praying together. If possible, link up with another friend who has walked with God as they faced adversity in their lives. These individuals can become real prayer warriors!

Prayer networks are also important when there are ongoing needs or crises. Their local church and Dana’s Bible study group has been part of that network to support her in prayer. They also developed an electronic prayer network where they share prayer requests and praises with hundreds of friends and family here and around the world through e-mail. This enabled them to send on-the-spot requests as they walk through some of the most challenging of times. Fear is banished and peace fills Dana’s heart.


Lord, wrap Your loving arms around my family and friends. Protect them, encourage them, let them know they are deeply loved by You. Amen.

We look forward to your comments, questions, and prayers in these devotionals!

Gregory - thank you for your comments! It is our pleasure to walk beside you as you grow closer to God each day!
I've never seen before so terrible responsability in charge of our authorities neither our authorities too. But without a doubt the persons who are in charges like governors, our president, the mayors, police, etc are the persons elected for our God, his eyes and all the resources in Heaven is at their favor. I pray to my God to open my eyes and see the God's power in the current circunstancies in the earth.
We should pray for those have authority give them guidance as well our families.
Pray help me stay close to God
This is a comment about the app. When I click complete a message about not being subscribed pops up. However, I am subscribed. This is happening on another page as well. Thanks for your assistance.
Lord forgive me for not praying for my family as I should.
Father, thank You for Your great love for us, and for bringing us closer together in love and unity. As we walk close to You, draw us into deeper, richer intimacy with You and with each other. Help us to live Proverbs 17v27 daily. "A friend loves at all times; and a brother is born for a time of adversity". Help me to encourage others as You have encouraged and sustained me. Thank You for the example Jesus left for us to follow. Amen!
Thank you Heavenly Father for your Blood covering my Family. Thank you for your Protection keeping them safe and No weapon formed against them shall prosper. I give you all the Glory and honor.....In Jesus Name! Amen!
I’d like to thank all the contributors to the gotandem app for reminding me to study the Bible more and to pray more for family and friends; And for all peoples of the earth to be saved. God bless you all abundantly. Love in Christ, brother Greg
Forgive me Lord for not praying to you more often. Please give me the desire to pray! Amen
I have found this to be so important in my life. I honestly don't know how I would make it without the prayers and support of my family and friends
Every Monday morning my sister and I would meet to go over the past week to see what had happened. We talked about every thing. I miss those days today, My sister is now in Heaven with my My Mom, Dad, and Brother They are with Jesus singing His Praises and working for Jesus for preparing for us, Amen
