We were challenged at prayer one night by our pastors wife (love her heart for God!) The whole message was about bridging the gap, interceding for others and not being focused on ourselves which totally resonated with my spirit.
If we are ‘others’ focused, we certainly become far more effective for the Kingdom of God. The challenge was that when we watch the news, instead of getting caught up and fearful in whats going on, to intercede over those nations, leaders and cities. How much more affective would we be if each believer would habitually do this.
Here is my added challenge; each time you see someone posting on FB, instead of criticizing or giving your stinky opinion (either verbally to someone else or written in a post), pray for them! If you don’t know what to pray, ask God to show you what the issues are that need to be addressed and do it in the spirit realm.
II Corinthians 10:4-5 NET “For the weapons of our warfare are not human weapons, but are made powerful by God for tearing down strongholds. We tear down arguments and every arrogant obstacle that is raised up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to make it obey Christ.”
If nothing else, pray this verse over everyone of your friends posts. We’re all in a war! Just because we don’t see the enemy, he’s there and he comes to steal, kill and destroy each of us. His goal is to try to defeat the body of Christ from being what we need to be in these last days by bringing disunity, disharmony and disagreement. You don’t know whats going on in their lives, but God does. We all need to take our rightful place, link arms and pray for each other.
The bible says that in these last days, even the very elect would be deceived. Paul said to pray for one another so YOU would be healed. Why do you think that is? Because we were made to be others focused, not ‘me’ focused.
I pray for everyone of my FaceBook friends. Whether I know you myself or through a friend that referred you, God knows your struggle, your pain, what you’re going through. You can’t hide or hold secrets from Him because he searches the hearts and knows the hidden things. I speak life to you; not just fleshy life but God breathed life into you. May His Word encourage you and bring you health today. As you pray for others, may you see supernatural turn-around in your health, your finances, your job and your relationships. May you become acutely tuned into what moves the heart of your Father, God. I speak blessings on your day. May the love of God consume you in your weakest moment. In Jesus’ Name. AMEN!
