Why pray with others?
“Do not pray for an easy
life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one”
Wed, May 6, 2015 | link
― Bruce Lee
Doing things alone is difficult. When someone is alongside it just seems easier,
even if we are walking up the same hill.
Praying is no different.
A caring person alongside and agreeing in our prayer is something we can enjoy and find peace in. It raises
our awareness of our words and enables the spiritual power to multiply and the power of God to rain down. It is an amazing
experience, if done well.
Unfortunately it is often not done well and this causes anxiety or embarrassment.
It does not need to! Firstly, pray with those friends with whom you do not mind sharing
intimate discussions. Good friends or family!
Next follow God guidelines.
Prayer needs to be salted with thankfulness. For every non-thankful prayer item, salt it with two thankful
items. That way it builds our presence up towards heaven instead of focusing us down toward the dregs of life.
Next let's be persistent and alert in our prayers
(Colossians 4:2) and avoid adding gossip to prayers. They should be helping those (and ourselves) who have fallen into selfish,
ignorant and nasty ways. (Galatians 6:1).
Pray for the sick (James 5:14-15) and those that speak for Christ (Colossians 4:4). Pray that people would understand
the joy of Jesus and be saved from hard lives and an eternity of pain (Romans 10:1)
Pray that we would become Spirit led and sensitive to God’s
guidance (Ephesians 3:16)
Pray that we would all learn to pray better, encourage each other and love each other more.
“So confess your sins to one another. Pray for one another
so that you might be healed. The prayer of a godly person is powerful. Things happen because of it.”
James 5:16 NIRV

Donít worry about anything. No matter what happens, tell God about everything.
Don’t worry about anything.
No matter what happens, tell God about everything. Ask and pray, and give thanks to him. Then God’s peace will watch
over your hearts and your minds. He will do this because you belong to Christ Jesus. God’s peace can never be completely
understood. ~ Holy Bible, Phillipians 4:6-7

Can we change the world around us with our worries? Can a worry in itself do anything?
Sleepless nights tossing in bed with rampart thoughts coursing through our minds. For what? Does it make us more effective in the morning? How often have nights like that led to successful days that
Worry is our thoughts screaming at us, out of
What did Jesus
say about this in Matthew 6;
“I tell you, do not worry. Don’t worry about your life and what you will eat or drink. …
Your Father who is in heaven knows that you need them. 33 But put God’s kingdom
first. Do what he wants you to do. Then all those things will also be given to you. So don’t worry
about tomorrow. Tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Worry has a place to enable us to prepare for
future events. Yet, once
we have considered the event and what we might do, worry has done its task. If our mind returns
to the issue a second time, it may be worth considering things again, but once it returns a third
time we are simply wasting useful time and mental resources. The second time may fill in a gap with something we
have not considered but any more than that is wasting our lives and simply building anxiety.
What are we to do when the worry
demon grips our mind? Our first response is to
tell God about it and focus on what Jesus does in our lives and his love.
We need to thank God for all he does and remember the ways he has helped
us in the past. We hand over the worry to God. We give Him the control and responsibility of our lives. After all, He is the
creator and sustainer of all that is in life. We look to enfolding ourselves in His love and protection. We acknowledge we
cannot deal with things ourselves and that we don’t need to because He is in control. We thank Him for His peace which
passes understanding and allow it to pervade your life.
Now with our mind refreshed, our spirit will be released to soar.
That’s the best way to gain peace, escape the shackles of
worry and continue into the day isn’t it?
