Share prayer part 1

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 9:01 AM
Share prayer: Prayer is something that almost everyone does, whether they are a Christian or not. Prayer often tends to be a higher form of wishing. Something deep in the core of our being calls out to a supreme, all-powerful being when we’re in need. And sometimes we pray for what we want. Prayer, however, is something that we are told to do (about everything) and shown how to do throughout the Bible. Prayer is meant to be powerful. It changes things. It changes attitudes. It changes lives. Prayer brings us closer to God, allows us to hear from God, and brings us closer to each other. Prayer can be shared in two ways. The first is praying for each other. These can be general prayers for health, safety, spiritual growth, and guidance. They can also be specific for things such as making a particular decision, handling a marital challenge, coping with a difficult child, or comfort in a time of loss. They can also be deeply personal, for things that are internal struggles such as personal sin and temptation. These are the hardest things to share, but usually need the most prayer. Knowing that someone is praying for you in a certain area can be reassuring and comforting.
