Meeting God to pray for others

Do you carry a burden for someone else?  Let’s take them to Gethsemane and meet Jesus there in prayer.

Look for Him as He’s weeping before the Father on their behalf.  Kneel beside Him and agree with what He prays.

Ask the Lord what He feels about that burden and connect with His heart.  Speak the words, ‘Lord, let Your heart be comforted’ and watch what He says and does.  Follow Him emotionally until He comes to peace or joy.  Let His comfort overflow to you.

Then ask Him, ‘Why are You at peace concerning this burden?’ or ‘Why are You joyful about this person?’  He will usually answer with a word of promise that ignites faith in us to intercede.
