“I’m Praying for You”: 11 Bible Verses That Teach Us How to Pray Like Jesus Did

“I’m praying for you.”

 It’s one of the most common phrases Christians blurt out in response to a friend or family member’s hardships—but how often do we actually follow through? “I’m praying for you” has almost become a colloquial cliché as commonplace as the “How are you?” we say to passing colleagues in the hallway and the “I’m sorry for your loss” we offer to hurting friends at a funeral.

The difference, however, is that the latter two phrases do not require action, whereas “I’m praying for you” does. So often, I believe we fail to follow up on this promise to pray because we are not equipped with the knowledge of how we are supposed to pray.

As believers who desire to live with intention and purpose, it’s important that we learn how to pray well, both for our own personal good and on behalf of our fellow brothers and sisters. So who better to look to as an example than our own Lord and Savior Jesus, who set the gold standard for praying to God boldly, believingly, and fervently in the face of a wide array of afflictions.
