Importance of Praying For Others
Each and every righteous person who fears Almighty God, and adamantly honors the ultimate Day of Judgment, no matter poor or rich, sick or healthy, strong or weak, black or white, all and all the time needs to seriously focus on what the bible tells us in regards to the Judgment Day accountability, as well as on our praying obligations, not only for ourselves, but also for others.
Definitely each person is accountable for his actions, but praying for those who are in need for spiritual riches are very helpful and blessed by God.
Our Holy father is always ready with open arms to forgive our sins and write off our transgressions, no matter what they are, big or small provided that our repentance is genuine.
It is vital to recognize that every one of us is accountable for his actions be righteous or evil.
Children are not accountable for their parents’ actions and vise versa.
This reality and plain truth is stated clearly to us in Ezekiel.
In hard as well as in good times, let all stay modest, loving caring and pray for each other. God has instructed us to do so in Saint James letter as shown below
Importance Of Praying
Is any among you suffering? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing praises. Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will heal him who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your offenses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The insistent prayer of a righteous person is powerfully effective. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain, and it didn’t rain on the earth for three years and six months. He prayed again, and the sky gave rain, and the earth brought forth its fruit. Brothers, if any among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death, and will cover a multitude of sins.
God Is Always Willing To Forgive
The soul who sins, he shall die: the son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be on him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be on him. But if the wicked turn from all his sins that he has committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. None of his transgressions that he has committed shall be remembered against him: in his righteousness that he has done he shall live.
