"Pray for me," someone says to you. How seriously do you take such a request? Ken Carter, a pastor for nearly 30 years, says he has learned to honor the request "Pray for me" as a cry for help. "It is an acknowledgment that we are limited and finite creatures. It is a trust placed in a higher power," he comments. "It is always prompted by a situation that would not be desired, yet it is always an occasion for the grace of God." Carter compares a person in need—whether it's because of illness, grief, a broken relationship, a job loss, or a spiritual crisis—to someone holding a bucket that is full. The bucket is filled with emotion, grief, confusion, and disappointment. An intercessor comes alongside the person in need, holding an empty bucket. The person in need pours out his or her concerns into the intercessor's empty bucket. The intercessor then receives that person's agenda as a calling from God to pray for him or her. In "Pray for Me" Carter lays a scriptural foundation for intercessory prayer and introduces you to this powerful and life-changing ministry. Interspersed through the 6 chapters are brief, practical exercises that lead you to pray for others in various situations. If you've ever felt a burden to pray for others but didn't know where to start, this book is a must-read. Individuals, small groups, and congregations who want to grow in their ministry of intercessory prayer will benefit from reading this book.

Best selling author William Byron offers here an appealing sequel to his popular A Book of Quiet Prayer. Praying with and for others broadens the concept of personal prayer to a new level to include praying with and for others, particularly for worldwide peace."We cannot go to God alone," he writes. "Nor should we forget, when facing God, that there are persons and problems out there in need of our prayers, and that praying with, not simply for, but with others, extends our reach and raises our silent or vocal prayers to higher levels of effectiveness."The book grows out of the author's experience as a priest and pastor, preacher and spiritual guide, in helping others open up to God. Readers will appreciate Byron's poignant, effective, and very personal approach to prayer. In addition, they will welcome the suggestions he to facilitate faith sharing and group prayer that he offers.

So what is the point of intercession, anyway? Author Tricia Rhodes defines intercession in vivid terms-"to stand in the gap between God and needy people, our hearts bonded to theirs as we plead their case in prayer, regardless of what they have done or haven't done to deserve God's intervention." Moses did it and saved the Israelites from God's wrath. Stephen interceded for those who stoned him. Paul prayed for countless Christians and non-believers alike. And we see intercession most extravagantly displayed through Jesus Christ, who walked the earth a friend of sinners. Tricia declares, "We are never more like Christ than when we connect with others in their pain or their sin and choose to bear their burdens in prayer. Intercession is simple, yet profound." Offering easy-to-grasp tools and truths, Intimate Intercession will show the reader how to know and to pray God's heart. Each chapter is divided into segments that provide a biblical basis, inspirational thoughts, and personal devotional exercises that will engage the reader both in connecting with God and experiencing intimacy with Him.

Advance praise for Special Intentions “Special Intentions reminds us of the importance of not simply praying for what we need, but for what others need. Jesus taught us to ask God for our daily bread, but he also asked us to love one another. Commending our friends and families (and co-workers, neighbors, acquaintances and even those who bother us) to the care of God is a key aspect of that love, and an important element of the Christian tradition. “Claire Coleman's sensitive new work will help readers to more fully enter into this rich stream of the spiritual life.” —James Martin S.J, author of My Life with the Saints “If you've ever offered up a simple ‘God help him’ at the sight of someone less fortunate, then this book will resonate with your innate sense that prayers have power. Claire Coleman offers a graceful, easy way to benefit others with her beautifully written portraits of those in need. Take her advice, say a prayer for a stranger and make the world a better place.” —Patricia Sheridan, Assistant Editor/Features, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette “While Special Intentions is a beautiful meditative book for the person alone in prayer before God, it likely also will be will be an inspiration for those in prayer groups, and friends who come together to talk about their life’s journeys.” —Dianne M. Traflet, J.D., S.T.D., Associate Dean, Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology, Seton Hall University “Prayer is a personal experience, but sometimes we need a little reminder. Claire Coleman's Special Intentions is the perfect book to keep close at hand and close to the heart to reference, to inspire, and to share with others.” —Amelia Grey, author of twenty-three books “[The] listings of special intentions are so global and yet personal, so ordinary and yet profound.” —Sr. Joan Noreen, OLME, co-founder and director of Our Lady’s Missionaries of the Eucharist Host, Eucharistic Journey, Eternal World Television, (EWT) Network “Ms. Coleman reminds us that every one of us is, for very different reasons, in need of prayers.… Her ability to lead us to pray for someone we suddenly notice, think about, and then care about—someone who we don’t even know — is truly a gift. —Dr. Sharon Latchaw Hirsh, president, Rosemont College, Rosemont, Pennsylvania

We all pray . . . some. We pray to stay sober, centered, or solvent. When the lump is deemed malignant. When the money runs out before the month does. When the marriage is falling apart. We pray. But wouldn’t we like to pray more? Better? Stronger? With more fire, faith, and fervency? Yet we have kids to feed, bills to pay, deadlines to meet. The calendar pounces on our good intentions like a tiger on a rabbit. And what about our checkered history with prayer? Uncertain words. Unmet expectations. Unanswered requests. We aren’t the first to struggle with prayer. The first followers of Jesus needed prayer guidance too. In fact, prayer is the only tutorial they ever requested. And Jesus gave them a prayer. Not a lecture on prayer. Not the doctrine of prayer. He gave them a quotable, repeatable, portable prayer. Couldn’t we use the same? In Before Amen best-selling author Max Lucado joins readers on a journey to the very heart of biblical prayer, offering hope for doubts and confidence even for prayer wimps. Distilling prayers in the Bible down to one pocket-sized prayer, Max reminds readers that prayer is not a privilege for the pious nor the art of a chosen few. Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child. Let the conversation begin.

The tool you have in your hands is a simple reminder of the need to pray for oneself.

Next, list in the Faith Builders section, all the prayers you see answered while going through this book. Most of all. At the end, take a day to reflect on all the answered prayers you have listed and be strengthened by the fact that GOD not only hears you when you pray for others.

PRAYERS FOR OTHERS It just makes sense to pray for each other. Look around you. There is always someone in need. And there is something that each and every one of us can do to make life a bit easier for another. We just have to try. Begin where you are. That is what I have been doing. Writing prayers on note pads for whomever presses upon my mind. Sometimes it is a family member. Other times it is a friend, coworker, class mate or even someone on television. I see life happening to us all. I get that gut feeling; the one that gnaws at me and tells me that the person on my mind could use a prayer or divine intervention. And that is enough for me to act. I explain what I know in prayer and ask the Lord to bestow blessings on the individual, or on his or her current circumstance. I used to fold those note prayers and place them in a vase. And you know what, after a while that vase turned into a note book, then the note book turned into, well let’s just say that the rest is right here. Do I still write prayers for others? You bet. I always will. Be there for someone today!

To pray is to know God."If God really cared he would answer my prayer." "I hesitate to ask him anything." "I can't understand why he continues to ignore my deepest needs." Bingham Hunter recognizes that most believers have these thoughts from time to time. He encourages us to look at prayer from the standpoint of who God is.The true aim of prayer is intimacy with God. We pray effectively when we make him the desire of our hearts, Hunter answers our questoins about prayer by directing us to the nature and attributes of God and to our own lives. God responds not to our prayers but to who we are--what we think, feel, will and do. Prayer is communication from the whole persons to the Wholeness that is the living God.
