‘Do you pray? Would you like me to pray for you and me?’ I was lying awaiting an operation as I heard these words from my surgeon. I assured him of my gratitude, and he prayed; and I entered the oper- ating theatre with peace and assurance. Since that time I have often thought of the way my life has been blessed through the prayers of others. Parents, teachers, people in churches and my work colleagues – the list goes on and on. Their prayers have been a vital part of my
life.

Those memories cause me to realise how important it is for
me to be part of that ministry of intercession. All around us people need God’s touch and long to know that others care for them and are peti- tioning him on their behalf. If we open our eyes and ears, we will see their needs, which he supplies through his people. Our offer of prayer can provide hope and can assure them that they do not face their trials alone. We may not be able to meet all their needs, but we can pray. And our God will hear and answer those
prayers.

Prayer: Dear Lord God, show us the needs of those around us so that we can give hope and peace to others as we serve and pray for them. In Jesus’ name. Amen

BSL devotions is such a fantastic resource, thank you so much for starting it up and developing the site. I am a Christian hearing person who works with deaf people and have loved the opportunity to develop my understanding of and use of christian signs through the videos. It would be great to know who all the sign interpreters are as well as those who write the devotional content. Perhaps as the website grows in the future, UK deaf and hearing Christians can contribute to the devotion content. Many thanks and blessings. Please keep the site going! HJ
