A Creative Way to Encourage Others

Are you looking for creative ways to encourage others?

One of the things I’ve been doing for the last few years is sending recorded prayers through texts. This has really come in handy with the Covid-19 season we are in.

How do I decide who to send a prayer to? So glad you asked! I ask God who needs a recorded voice prayer today and then I call up that person’s name on a text and record a heart-felt prayer for them. Sometimes I send a prayer text to one individual and some days I send out as many as 10 to 12 prayer texts.

I allow the Holy Spirit to lead me in praying for each individual. There are times I know exactly what someone is going through and I pray about that. Other times I have no idea what someone is facing and I pray however I feel led to pray.

The interesting thing about this is … I am the one who is blessed. I am able to have a great prayer time and I have encouraged others at the same time, which in return encourages me.

The responses I’ve received have been so encouraging. Sometimes it’s a simple “Thanks.” Other times, it’s “Thank you so much, that was a timely prayer.” Or “How did you know I needed prayer?” One thing I’ve heard from many, “That was such an encouraging prayer. How did you do it?”

In the video below I show how to record a prayer on your cell phone and how to send it through a text.

What have you been doing lately to encourage others?

A book on prayer that I recommend is Praying the Bible by Donald S. Whitney.
