Everyone has a story to tell. When we make the connection between our story and God's great story, we come away with HIStory, which involves each and every one of us.
We are in dire need of prayer here on Earth. God gave us the most amazing gift when His Son Jesus Christ ascended to heaven. He gave us the Holy Spirit. We now have direct access to our Father in heaven. If there was ever time to pray, it is NOW! There is nothing easy about living here on Earth. But it doesn't have to be this difficult if we just bow our knees in prayer. As members of the Church, we should be praying for one another - interceding on behalf of our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Will you join me in leading a prayer group in your area? It doesn't take much - just you and one or two other friends, co-workers, classmates, neighbors, church members... Let's come together in weekly prayer and see God invade our lives and answer our prayers. He desires to communicate with us in a personal and loving way. Let's take our spiritual lives to the next level by communicating with Him more.
I will give you all you need to start the prayer group. Just reach out to people and ask them if they would like to join you. I will give you the information to download the app where you can connect with your prayer team and via this blog you will have inspirational themes and scripture to help you lead the group each week. You don't need to meet with your group in person. You can pray at home or wherever is best. You connect with your group via the prayer app, Facebook groups, email or text. It won't take much time and it will bless you beyond your wildest dreams.
Luke 21:34-36 (NIV)
34 “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. 35 For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
I am delighted to have you join this team of prayer warriors.
