Praying For One Another,praying is a command from God. Prayer goes where you cannot go,do what you cannot do, and gives God access to your situation, and others.
You have not because you ask not,have you prayed, if you only pray when you need something, then you’re in trouble. Do you thank God after you pray.
“You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain,
“The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”? But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up ” .(James 4:2-10 NKJV).
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you”. (Philippians 4:6-9 NKJV).
“praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—” (Ephesians 6:18 NKJV).
“pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”.(I Thessalonians 5:17-18 NKJV)
+Do we pray more for things than we pray for one another?
+Do we wait for others to call us with a problem before we pray for them?
Confess your faults one to another, and PRAY ONE FOR ANOTHER, THAT ALL OF YOU MAY BE HEALED. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
A. PRAY ONE FOR ANOTHER…
B. THAT ALL OF YOU MAY BE HEALED… (Please note that we also receive HEALING when we pray for one another).
Luke 18:1 (Jesus said)
…that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.
+I am praying for you and thank you for praying for me.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for our lives. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED we are and BLESSED we will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!!!
