PRAYING WITH OTHERS . . .

 

“Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers . . .” Ephesians 6:18

Praying with others requires sensitivity. You should be sensitive to the person, sensitive to the time and place, but most of all sensitive to the Holy Spirit! Ultimately you must do as the Holy Spirit leads. When you do, even if the person feels awkward, your prayer won’t hurt them.

For example, in October 2019 while on a mission trip discipling ministers deep in the Amazon forrest, I cultivated a friendship with the chief cook at the Hotel. On the last day I went to tell her goodby and give her one of my books in Portuguese. Before I left I asked if I could pray with her. She said yes, so I prayed out loud for her. Our Lord’s presence enveloped her as He ministered to her needs. After I prayed she was so grateful that she gave me a big hug. PTL! (Photo above)

Go to the link below and read the following testimony. Although the testimony does not say it, I asked “Can I pray with you before we go?” I prayed, the man listened, and then he began to pray silently along with me. See the link below to read the rest of the story!

When we pray in faith as the Spirit leads, our prayer releases the Lord’s presence and power. God does a work and lives are changed! HALLELUJAH! I have seen this many, many times as I have prayed for others. I urge you to do the same!
