PRAYING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY
Jesus made it very clear that His kingdom is not of this world system which thrives on fleshly desires, the pursuit of pleasure, worldly ways, and climbing up the staircase of success. Believers are advised to Be Wise And To Take Care Of Our Lives, our souls. We are encouraged to be on our guard against all covetousness, our lives do not consist of the abundance of our possessions. We would be wise to hold the things of this world very lightly and not to hanker after the accumulation of many things, they are like the frothy foam carried on the waves of the sea which swiftly disperses within a few moments of time.
The key issue in guarding against covetousness is the protection of our life, and the word 'LIFE' is often interchanged in the Scriptures with the word 'SOUL'. Jesus said, "He who gains his life/soul on earth will lose his life/soul in heaven, and he who loses his life/soul while here on earth will gain his life/soul in Christ's eternal, heavenly kingdom." If we spend our earthly life focusing on the things of the world and coveting the things that we do not have, we are wasting our life, we are wasting our soul, we are living like the unsaved and Paul calls this a carnal Christian life. For whatever we gain in this life through covetous carnality, results in loss in the next, but those who guard their present life against covetousness by living a spiritual life that is pleasing to the Lord, are laying up treasures in the next.
For a short time, we will experience many hardships, trials, and tribulations, and for a time it will appear that the godly are flourishing while the children of God are in great deprivation. But in the world to come, the life we lose here will be rewarded with much gain in the next. If we gain much in this world through covetous behavior, we will forfeit much in the next. How important, therefore, to take care of our life and to be on our guard against all covetousness, our life does not consist of the abundance of our possessions, but of the treasure we have stored up in heaven.
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”
Our United Prayer:
Loving Father, keep us from covetousness, carnal behavior, and envying the wicked who seem to have everything in this world, while so many of Your children often seem to be so deprived. Help us to realize how short this life is and the futility of living for earthly possessions. Help us to live our lives in spirit and truth so that by dying to selves, we live for Christ and to His praise and glory, which will produce a great reward in heaven. In Jesus' name we Pray, AMEN.
We are a growing group of people praying daily for and with others. We were led to start an online ministry to deliver what is needed more now than ever, a place where you can go to easily to submit a prayer request or requests involving others to pray for your needs. The Power of Prayer. Matthew 18:20- For where two or more come together in my name, there I am among them. You are never alone in prayer. The Power Of Numbers Praying.
We ask you to pray for this ministry, for its success in helping others in need of prayer.
