United By Prayer Wall
PRAYING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY
It is sin that has caused the angelic conflict to rage in heavenly places throughout history. Both saved and unsaved people are targeted by Satan. He is like a roaring lion, is on the prowl looking for someone to devour. He is a deceptive angel of light. He seeks to engender despair in God's servants and deceives both the saved and unsaved, with deceit and lies about God's gracious nature and eternal goodness.
God Does Bless His People, however it is wrong to suggest that the reason a Christian that is going through a difficult time is due to their sin. We would do well to recognize this and refrain from judgements that are not ours to make, or criticisms that are not under our sovereignty. God does bless His children, and although we need to confess any sin to the Lord, we should never assume that difficult circumstances are always a result of our wrongdoing, as it shows a lack of faith in His Word and distrust of His promises. It encourages the unbiblical attitude of salvation, or blessing through works - but salvation and God's blessings are a demonstration of God's grace - not of works.
Job was a righteous man, which means he was a sinner - saved by grace. Job trusted in God, and his faith was credited as righteous. Although the evil that befell him was permitted by God, Job was wrong to plead "injustice" to the Lord. Nevertheless, his misfortunes had nothing to do with Job's sinning, as his friends believed.
May we be faithful servants who trust in the Lord with ALL our hearts and not lean on our own understanding. May we acknowledge Him in ALL things and allow the Lord to direct our paths in the difficult times as well as the good.
What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me.
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You for showing us that the good things that happen to us are not because of OUR goodness but because of YOUR grace. Help us to remember that the difficult things we may have to endure, are not always an indication of sin but can be attributed to Satan - the accuser of our souls. Thank You that IN CHRIST there is nothing of which we can be accused, because Christ is our Mediator, Whose shed blood cleanses us from ALL sin, past, present, and future. Thank You, that we are clothed forever in His righteousness and that Your grace is open to sinners, and saved alike. We pray that many who are deceived by satanic lies will be set free, and come to saving faith in Christ Jesus our Lord, in Whose 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.
