Praying For The Body of Christ

Praying For The Body of Christ

All over the globe in each and every nation there are those that love Jesus.  There are those that are faithful in serving Him.  We need to pray for the body of Christ as there are many needs everywhere.  Sometimes one can have tunnel vision and not see further than their own circle of family and friends but God wants to extend your vision.  See a little further and know that your brothers and sisters are going through battles also.  When one member of the body suffers all suffer. In the natural if one hurts a part of their body it tends to hinder how the rest of the body functions.  It is the same in the spiritual.

 Let us pray for God to strengthen His children and use them as bright lights in this world.  The fields are white to harvest and together we will see them come into the Kingdom of God.

Father we ask that you strengthen each member of the body of Christ today.  Pour in fresh oil and wine.  Lift up the feeble hands that hang down and give them renewed vision of you.  Let them know that you have given them a purpose for living and a destiny to fulfill.  Let intercessors arise that will pray for the nations.  Let the hearts of your children be uplifted today.  Fill them with your love, joy and peace and let them be as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves.  Position them for your glory.  Let each one know that the most important thing is their relationship with Jesus.  You are calling your bride to come to maturity.  Together we will complete the work you have called us to do.  We ask this all in Jesus name. Amen.

26 And if one member suffers, all the parts [share] the suffering; if one member is honored, all the members [share in] the enjoyment of it. 1 Cor. 1:26 (AMP)
