Standing in the Gap for a family member: Many times, we are weak in ourselves and need other people to stand up for us. Having family and friends to pray for us in our moments of need is a privilege to cherish. Remember, it was the prayer of the brethren that saved Peter from Herod’s prison.

Acts 12:5
“Peter, therefore, was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him” .
