#7 Levels of Uniting in Prayer




Wesley L. Duewel: "Uniting in prayer is often essential in securing prayer answers. God always honors unit in prayer.

When several are praying for the same need, God may choose one of the group to bear a special prayer burden or exercise special faith. This can strengthen and help all the group in their praying.

I point out five levels of uniting in prayer:

Level 1:    Prayer partners
Level 2:   Prayer groups
Level 3:   Simultaneous prayer groups
Level 4:   Calls to prayer issued by responsible and                                                         influential leaders to many people and groups  
Level 5:    Widespread movements of prayer

During widespread movements of prayer all five levels may be existing simultaneously as guided and motivated by the Holy Spirit. Uniting in prayer will be discussed more fully in later chapters."

Father,
Help us in our praying, that we may learn
more ways to pray effectively.
When we gather with someone, in a group, 
or alone to pray, enable us to sense what 
Your burden is for us.
It is our desire to be able to experience the
different levels of praying.
I ask this in Jesus' Name. Amen.

Today’s Bible verse: Ps. 107:13 "Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distress."

Today’s quote: "There comes a time to stop fearing God's plan—a flashpoint where we stop thinking about ourselves and we start thinking about what we can do for others." Jo Ann Fore (p.70 in her book, When a Woman finds her Voice

Some thoughts today: There are times we'll not be in agreement with others. If it is an issue of conscience, it will be a personal persuasion and not a difference of core values. We need to study out the differences, and be fully persuaded in what we believe. "Don’t allow your pride or personal preference limit who you will learn from.
Neil Vermillion

~ When a person realizes he is broken and in desperation calls on the Lord, He will save him. The work of the Holy Spirit is to cut to the heart, to reveal the deep need of the Savior. (see Acts 2:37-39). This is a core value that cannot be disputed.

~ God extends His grace and mercy to transform us into His image, as it was in the beginning in the garden of Eden. (see Gen. 2:8). Our innermost desire is to return there, and is evident in our attempts to recreate "paradise-like" experiences our whole life long.

A popular post: Repentance. What Does it Look Like? Mary Southerland"What does it mean to repent? The woman in the book of Luke knew. 

She models repentance for us and illustrates beautifully the truth that if we want to experience worship we must come to God, seeking forgiveness..."
