Call to Prayer

How often have you longed to share a concern with someone and ask them to pray with you, but didn't want to burden anyone with your need? Too often, we try to be strong as rocks and resist sharing our burdens or asking for anyone else to pray for us. But it's scriptural to pray for one another, sharing our burdens and confessing our sins.

Sometimes we are afraid of sharing because we are among people we do not trust. Like in a small town, family or church situation. Of course, we are not meant to gossip other people's needs or sins while acting as though we are just "sharing a prayer concern." There must be a trust involved in praying for others or listening to their confessions.

We need to be a community of believers who can be trusted with each other's confessions and needs. We should try as hard as we can not to judge others as they are seeking to come to us with their prayer requests, etc. We must never be critical. It is sad to stand paralyzed, feeling alone in one's hour of need. God meant for the body of Christ to be one, to interact with one another. He is blessed by this!

Members of this forum may post prayer requests and reply to requests to add our prayer responses to each other's prayer requests. We may also post praise reports and answers to prayer. In this way, we can lift one another to Our Father, bear one anothers burdens, encourage each other and rejoice together as God blesses and guides us.
