• Paul’s Appeal for Prayer Devotional

    Romans 15:30–32

    It is easy to strive in prayer for ourselves, for we feel our sufferings and we have an experiential understanding of the urgency of our needs. We find it much harder to strive in prayer for others because we do not have this experiential connection. We are not in their shoes. That is why we should work hard to empathize with others in their needs, for as we get a stronger sense of what is necessary for them, we are better able to pray for others with all perseverance.
