 Many times our prayers become so self-centered intstead of being God-centered.  This book is a challenge to believers to align their prayers with the purpose and plan of God.  We have been studying this book in our Wedneday night service. 

Last week in our study we focused on the special relationship that God has with his children and how that impacts our prayer life.  We should be building each other up in our prayers.  As a part of the body of Christ it is a priviledge to pray for one another. 

So we realize that we should be praying for each other, what should we then pray for each other?  The author provides a helpful list: 

  • That our minds would be touched with understanding of His will in an increasing knowledge (Phil. 1:9-11; Col. 1:9-11).

  • That our hearts would always be fervent toward Him (1 Kings 8:58).

  • That our spirits would be strong in faith (Eph. 3:16-17).

  • That our love for one another would be fervent (1 Peter 4:8).

  • That we would be faithful to do all He has asked us (1 Cor. 4:2).

  • That we would glorify Him in all things (Matt. 5:16).

Can you imagine the unity and power the Body of Christ would have if we would truly commit to praying for each other in this way?
