"For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God." Ephesians 3:14-19
For some time, through FReepmail, several FReepers have provided each other with a way to share prayer requests and praises.
Now that the Non-denominational category has been established, we are offering a weekly thread in which posts of your requests and praises are welcome.
Anyone, regardless of denomination, is welcome to bring their concerns here.
The one thing that we hope to establish here, is that at a set time on Sunday evening, 11:00 p.m. in the Eastern time zone, 10:00 p.m. Central time, 9:00 p.m. Mountain time, and 8:00 p.m. Pacific time, we will as a group, lift these concerns up in prayer.
Individual prayer at any time is, of course, encouraged. People are asked to take a look at the posts and either pray a blanket covering / praise or pick out specific area where they have prophetic / discernment awareness / intercession of a request.
If anyone desires to post an "anonymous" request, just word it in a manner such as: " Please lift up my prayer (or praise) for a personal concern." Additional anonymity can be gained by sending a request or praise to svcw via FReepmail.
In the future, the weekly thread will be posted on Monday mornings in order for the concerns to be gathered through the week before they are compiled for the Sunday evening group prayer. This list will be available to all by around 4pm PST on Sunday.
If anyone has any additional ideas for this thread, or anyone would like to volunteer to help keep this thread going, please let us know.
Just as an example of prayer lists. When I was under going chemo for ovarian cancer in 1987, I had a particularly bad day. It was the only time I crumbled to the floor and sobbed. I received a phone call in the middle of this episode from my foster mother in Colorado, I live in California, who had just received a call from a young man in Texas who saw our names on a prayer list. He found her phone number (we still do not know how) and asked if he could pray with her about me. He wanted to lift not only me but her as well. My foster mom was so moved she called me to let me know someone I did not know was praying/interceding on my behalf. Praise God and prayer lists.
Ping to something new and exciting!
For where two or three are gathered together in my name.....
And if there are those who wonder at this promise to be in our midst when gathered in His name, I and others can share numerous episodes of His glorious work, even in mundane economic things ... remember, it is ALL for His glory, and by His Spirit His Presence is the focus for miracles.
Sunday evening, 11:00 p.m. in the Eastern time zone,
I’ll be here....
Exciting indeed! Since I am a Christian but don’t consider myself as belonging to a particular group, this is for me. Thanks for the ping
Ping to #3...I forgot ;(
I give thanks to almighty God for bringing my extended family through all their recent health problems. Everybody is on the mend. thank everybody for the prayers and support.
That is indeed good news, graybeard...Praise Him.
Prayer Request, I’m having surgery on Monday
I give praise that we have such spirit filled freepers
Prayers of course but I’m behind, who is having surgery?
Yes. That is the posters screen name.
You get an “A”...good Jlob!
That is the promise that non-denominational churches are as valid as any denominational church.
If you want Jesus to be in the midst, then all you need is two or three gathered in His name.
No elaborate rituals, no fancy robes, no smoke and incense, just two... or three.... gathered... together... in His name.
I'd also like to invite you and others to join Kingattax's daily "Pray for America" thread. You can look for it between 12:30 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. ET. Anyone wishing to be pinged to the thread can contact me.
I appreciate your call to group prayer and expect to see "immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine." :)
" Her step-mom is Susan, her Dad is Dave and her mom is Tina. She has 2 brothers also, along with 2 step-brothers. She is still here with us. It is sad. All she wanted to do was be able to go to a movie, but she is too weak to even try with a gurney or anything.
It really breaks my heart. She wont let friends come to see her because she doesnt want them to see her in this condition. She has had such a tough life, made some bad choices at times, but has always been a fighter".
Prayers requested for Amanda, her family and friends.
