"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
"First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly and respectful in every way. This is good, and it is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."
"Imitate God! If He wills that all men should be saved, there is reason why one should pray for all, if He has willed that all should be saved, be thou willing also; and if you wish it, pray for it, for wishes lead to prayers. Observe how from every quarter He urges this upon the soul, to pray for the Heathen, showing how great advantage springs from it; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life; and what is much more than this, that it is pleasing to God, and thus men become like Him, in that they will the same that He does."
St. Jean Marie Baptiste Vianney:
'What souls we can convert by our prayers. The one who saves a soul from hell saves this soul and his own as well.'
St. Faustina Kowalska
"Every single grace comes to the soul through prayer."
Most of us won't know until, by God's grace, we get to Heaven, but it is very likely that God honored the prayers of others (our parents, relatives, friends, or even strangers) who took the time to pray for us. Should we not also look to participate in God's plan of salvation for others?
1 Peter 3:12
“For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer.”
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
"You cannot always depend on prayers to be answered the way you want them answered but you can always depend on God."
If God is calling us to pray for others, He already knows their needs. The opportunity to pray for others is an opportunity to unite our wills to His, and to grow in love for those He loves.
