United By Prayer Wall
PRAYING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY
Paul made it very clear that just as a human body is made up of a vast number of different functioning parts, it remains one unified whole. Each of the different components and organs of the body has its own vital function and unique position within the body.
While each individual member of the body is incapable of carrying out the function of another body-part, together they work for good. Each makes its own unique contribution in order to successfully function as one unified whole for the benefit of the body ,but if one member malfunctions, it affects the whole.
Just as the human body was designed by God to function as one unified whole , so the Body of Jesus Christ has been designed to be a unified whole. Each believer has been endowed by the Spirit with his or her own gifts. Each has been spiritually equipped to carry out the work that God has prepared for them to do, so that together with the rest of the Body of Christ, they will individually and collectively grow in grace and walk in the unity of the Spirit.
The Christian Church is not a building where we meet every Sunday, it is composed of all individuals who have been saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus for the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting. Each church fellowship is a microcosm of the world-wide Body of Christ. Each has its own unique role to play and all members are of equal value and import to our heavenly Father. As Paul wrote in Ephesians, "we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, that is, Christ, from whom the whole Body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the Body for the building up of itself in love."
YES, the Lord Jesus is the Head over the Body, and His supreme command is that love should prevail in the hearts of all His children. He desires that we consider the needs of others before our own and that we avoid evil, envy, independence, self-importance, or personal worthiness.
How important that the genuine unity of the Body is maintained, while at the same time recognizing that we are a diverse group of redeemed individuals. Praise God that We Are All ONE In Christ Jesus Our Lord and that by grace through faith, "we are now Christ's Body - and individually members of it."
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You for the privilege of being united to Christ by faith and being part of Your Body, the Church. Thank You for my brothers and sisters in Christ, and we pray that we would be united together in love. We pray that in all things we would learn to love You with all our hearts, souls, minds and strength and to put the needs of our brothers and sisters in Christ before our own, for Your greater 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.
