United By Prayer Wall
PRAYING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY
Although in context, this verse reminds us not to fall into legalism by imposing non-scriptural rules and regulations upon ourselves or others about what we can or can't eat, or what we should or should not drink, in its wider application, this is a life-challenge to all believers.
This verse reminds us that Everything We Do Should Be Done To The Glory Of God. And whether we find ourselves to be alone or in the company of others, whether we are thrust into the business of every-day life or quietly confined to the isolation of a sick-bed, our attitudes and actions should be such that they are a positive reflection of God's glory.
But there is a further reason that whatever we do should be done to the glory of God, and this verse reminds us that it is connected with a loving concern for others. Brothers and sisters in Christ who are weaker in the faith, may find that their consciences prohibit them from practicing something which although quite 'lawful', could cause them to stumble in their Christian life.
Whenever we are faced with a choice in life, there are two important considerations that should help guide our behaviour. Firstly, does my conduct or choice glorify the Lord and secondly, could my action or attitude negativity impact my Christian testimony or have a detrimental effect on my fellow man.
Perhaps a simple way to avoid falling into legalism or license, is to follow Paul's simple instruction to do everything to the glory of God; to reverently and honestly ask the question, 'Is my behavior honoring to Him? Do my actions and attitude bring glory to God or am I tarnishing His holy name?'
May we take to heart this simple instruction from Paul:
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
Our United Prayer:
Oh Lord my God, how we long to be ones whose lives are a living testimony to Your goodness and grace and whose only desire is to live our lives to glorify You. Take our lives, Lord, and may Your will be done in all we say and do today. Use us as vessels to Your praise and glory in such a way that You increase, and we decrease, until it is Christ living in and through us, to His praise and glory. This we ask in Jesus' name, 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.
