THIS YEAR all of March falls in the season of Lent, the season when we spend extra time in prayer as we prepare to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. In your prayer time this month, add these people to those you normally pray for.
Praying for others is called intercessory prayer because you intercede or ask something on behalf of someone else. Sometimes when we pray for others, we pray about specific needs we know they have. Other times, when we don’t know their needs, we may simply ask God to bless them.
Prayer focus for March 10: Someone who’s hard to like.
