A natural result of praying transformational prayers in our own lives and in the lives of thoseclose to us, is that we will begin to see beyond ourselves and our own needs to the needs of others—not just those we know, but even those we don’t know—those in our community andaround the world. As we pray for God’s transformation in our own hearts—that we would behumble, gentle, patient, forbearing in love, keeping peace...(Eph. 4:2), our hearts becomemore sensitive to the needs of others. As God transforms your heart and you see other people differently, pray for that same power that has transformed your heart to do a new workin your family, your community, your workplace and around the world. How is God openingyour eyes to people and places where He wants to see His work accomplished. Ask toinclude you in what He’s up to. Is there anything your group can do to be an answer to thoseprayers?
