"I'm praying for you."
Most of us who are believers have said this or heard it be said. What a comforting statement. I know, for me, it is the most comforting thing for me to hear. To know someone is approaching the Father on my behalf is not only humbling, but comforting to know that people are praying for me.
Sadly, I have told people I am praying for them and haven't. I either had no intention of ever praying for them, just said it as a "passing statement", or simply forgot. After going through cancer, I have tried to be much more mindful when saying this statement.
I not only say it less, but I pray a lot more. I know that is sad (the irony), but I want to be a prayer warrior. I want people to know I will pray.
