We once talked about the importance of intercessory prayers, and one of them is a prayer for car accident victims. Sincerely, we are not complete until we start praying for one another.
Car accidents have been occurring for ages, we can only pray for the victims and ask God to limit the rate. Gladly, the government and its official are putting things in place to eradicate the possible causes. We as Christians can also play our part by praying for car accident victims and for God to stop its occurrence.
Just as we offer prayers for truck drivers, our prayers for car accident victims will focus on those who were directly involved in or got involved in a vital car accident that could at that point claim their lives.
According to the book of James 5:16, we are to confess our sins to one another and pray for each other. Some people will eventually die of what they are passing through if you do not sit up and start interceding for them.
As someone who cares about another, we are always supposed teenage in prayer for car accident victims so that God heals them.
What is an Accident generally?
An accident has been defined in diverse ways by different groups of individuals.
According to Miriam Webster, Accident can be defined as an unforeseen or unplanned event or circumstance. An accident is always negative in its manifestation, that is to say, we have never had a good car accident before, and it is always bad in its manifestation.

While we must be cautious to avoid accidents, these are not the only causes of car accidents. As we all know, the devil is always roaming around looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).
He has ways of influencing a man in order to devour him. A good number of careless acts you see men display on earth have a spiritual drive, we sometimes overlook the spirit cause of those actions and focus more on the physical.
I heard a story of a driver who was involved in a fatal road accident. According to the narrator of that story, the driver was known to be one of the most careful drivers in the vicinity. He was involved in an accident that claimed some lives.
According to eyewitnesses, the man was said to have lost control and run into a house, which killed people both inside the house, and those in transit. The driver luckily survived the accident. When questioned, it was discovered that he was neither drunk nor sleeping.
According to him, at a point on the road, he saw the road change to a building, and the area where the building stood turned out to be the road. Unknown to him, it was a way Satan wanted to use to waste their lives.
A lot of people have gone through similar and worst experiences on the road, and all we care about is the physical cause of the accident.
Try to go to the hospital to interview some car accident victims, you will be surprised to learn that a good number of them were not involved in that accident because they were careless, it happened because Satan was determined to waste their lives. If you still want to attribute it to carelessness, how about those victims of the same accident that were in the house where the car ran into?
Satan is very wicked, he hates you and will do everything to make sure that you are not alive. It is left for you to stop him. Engaging in prayer for a car accident victim is a way of taking Satan out of the picture and bringing God in.
The main purpose of this article is not just to talk about the causes of accidents, but to give ways to overcome them.
