We do not have to know people to pray for them.  We do not have to be personally involved in situations to bring them before God in prayer.  We can pray for missionaries we have only heard about.  We can pray for Godly organizations that we know are doing a good work.  Our prayers do not have to be limited.  Let's open our arms and embrace much more than our personal circle of family and friends or personal interests.
