Golden Bowls of Prayer

"To get nations back on their feet, we must first get down on our knees." Billy Graham

PRAY: Now knowing that every single person has been given a Golden Bowl in heaven to save and store all of the prayers people have prayed for them, pray for some of the most unlikely people in Hollywood. Pray for family members, neighbors, and especially for your enemies. Pray that you are a Christian who fills up the bowls of other people with your prayers of breakthrough, hope, joy, and salvation. Ask the Lord to show you that your prayers not only make an eternal difference for the person you're praying for, but that they are a rich and lasting incense.

REFLECT: Imagine what it would be like to have no one ever pray for you? How lonely it would feel to know that no one ever took the time to care enough about you to talk to God about you. Then think of the difference you can make in other people's lives by praying for them. You may be the first person to ever do so. Think about the joy of meeting Jesus in heaven and finding out how many Golden Bowls are filled with your prayers!

ACT: Start filling up the Golden Bowls of others by praying, by name, for the people on your heart. Start with three people in Hollywood who you care about. Pray for them, asking the Lord to bless them. Then know that you have put prayers in their Bowls - some may no longer be empty because of you! Then start praying for personal friends of yours, family members, neighbors, and keep track of who you're praying for. You are filling up Golden Bowls all over the world by taking the time to pray for the people you care about!
