Job 4:10 And the Lord turned the captivity of Job when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.
We all know the story of Job and how he stood firm in his belief during a time of great tribulation.
If you read the book of Job you will see that his friends scolded him and believed that the reason for his suffering was because of something he did to anger God.
This would have upset anyone and some of us might have ended the friendship we had with our accusers, however we see in the final chapter of this book that Job’s captivity only ended AFTER he prayed for his friends.
In life people will do things to hurt us and they may judge us wrongly. While our first instinct will be to pull ourselves away from the presence of those persons remember that your breakthrough just might be dependent on you praying for those persons.
