From Joni Ames 8/25/21
So this morning I am thinking of all of the people who need prayer. For some it is financial, some have need of direction, others have critical health issues. At the moment, mine is financial AND for direction/open ministry doors.
I personally have not been able to sleep much for the past few days, being so consumed with concern for so many people as well as my own situations.
I know I would not have gotten through the situation I had with Covid and pneumonia if not for the prayers of so many of you.
Galatians 6:2 tells us, “Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
James 5:16 says, “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
Ephesians 6:18 says “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.”
And of course in Job 42:10, “And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.”
The enemy wants us to get so wrapped up in our own problems or in strife over the issues of today that we forget each other. But it is in praying for each other that we get released from our own captivity. Whatever that may be.
When I look down my Facebook feed and see prayer requests, I try to say a quick prayer for each one. sometimes I click a heart or checkmark, sometimes I comment. Sometimes I pray in the natural, sometimes I pray in the spirit. But God says where two or more are gathered, He is in the midst and will do His part. So it’s important for us to do ours.
If so led, I encourage you to do likewise. I will also be praying for you for whatever requests you leave below.
Let’s ignore anything you see out there that stirs up strife or anger and simply focus today on praying for those who need it.
We need each other in these times. Let’s not let the enemy divide us because of our opinions. The Holy Spirit shows up when there is unity.
Please pray for me and know I’ll be praying for you.🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
