Ephesians 6:18 [ESV] praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
Ephesians 6:18 [Message] In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.
Prayer builds community!
Long before FaceBook there was prayer, long after FaceBook; there will be prayer.
Who did I pray for today?
Who didn’t I pray for today?
What would happen in the world if every time someone called us, texted us, twitted [is that a word?] us, showed up on our FaceBook, or MySpace, or whatever, where ever – would would happen if I prayed for them.
Today I heard from lots of friends and family and I lift them all up to you.
I get a glimpse at their lives, you on the other hand know them better than they know themselves.
May your will be done in their lives and mine.
Draw us all closer to You and to each other.
Help us to keep our eyes open and keep each other’s spirits up.
