Jeremiah 29:7 ” Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you will prosper.”

Everyone wants to live a successful, satisfied, and secure life…but what if yours is anything but.  Maybe you’re unhappy in your workplace with a overbearing Boss and back-stabbing co-workers?  Have you ever considered praying for them?  I Timothy 2:1-2 tells us to pray for all of those in authority over us that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.  Your intercessory prayers can change the atmosphere at work, and they can change people’s attitudes…yours included.  Are you unhappy in your marriage or with family relationships?  Would you be willing to start praying on behalf of those who are causing you pain right now?  For again, your prayers can change situations, family dynamics, and bring peace into those difficult relationships.  Because anytime we start praying for someone, our perspective changes about them…for we take on God’s view, not ours.
