Prayer – A key multiplication tool

Felicity Dale

Accountability can make you do some crazy things.

Two weeks ago, the house church that meets in our home discussed accountability. In order to make it practical, I challenged everyone to try and pray with someone, preferably who doesn’t know the Lord [Jesus] during the week, and said that we would report back the next time we came together.

Big mistake! Having challenged everyone, I now needed to live up to it too. Since I live the life of a writer, most of my time is spent with just me and my computer. There was no obvious situation where I would come across someone new, so I brainstormed.

I put an ad on Craigslist. “Do you need prayer?”: no response. I responded to some tweets that said, “I need prayer” or “I need God”: no response.

Finally, a couple of days before we were due to meet again, I received a sales call from someone at an online pet pharmacy. Our dogs needed some more flea and tick meds, so I placed my order. The lady at the other end was just saying goodbye when I interrupted her. “Before you leave, is there anything I can pray for you. I believe that God answers prayer.”

She broke down. She told me something I could pray about and I prayed for over the phone. It turned out she was a Christian. As we said goodbye, she said, “I’ll never forget you!”

When our group came back together, everyone had a story of how they had deliberately prayed for someone. No one they approached had refused prayer; everyone was very grateful.

Would we have done it without the knowledge that we would be asked to report back? I don’t think I would have done so. Prayer and accountability is a key tool in multiplication.


Practical activity:
Give your group a challenge. Maybe challenge them to pray with someone, or to tell their story to a not-yet-believer. The important thing is that you follow up with it.

A Prayer of Forgiveness

A Prayer of Forgiveness: “Father God: I come to You today in Jesus name. I give You everything that has hurt me. I give You every loss and the pain I have felt over each one. I give You injustice, every unfair situation, everything I don’t understand. I give You the people who have hurt me. I give You my past. I give it all to You, and I let it go right now. I ask for the comfort of the Holy Spirit to come into my life. Comfort me, oh Lord, the only way You can. Forgive me for running to people and getting angry at them because they could not make me feel better. You are the only one who can make me better. I thank You, Lord for healing. I ask that the grieving process take its proper course in me and that You would show me when it’s time to go on and how to do so. I pray for my joy to return, and for my life to return. I commit to You to get up and go on. In Jesus name, Amen.” – From Cindy G.

COMMENT from Richard: “How happy is the man who has put his trust in the Lord and has not turned to the proud or those who run after lies! Lord my God you have done many things, Your wonderful works and plans for us; none can compare with You. If I were to report and speak of them, THEY ARE MORE THAN CAN BE TOLD.” – PSALM 40:4-5

Prayer for Marriage Reconciliation

Prayer RequestPlease pray that God will soften by husbands heart. My husband and I are separated, and it has now been over 3 months. He has never forgiven anything I have ever done wrong, not even small mistakes from over 27 years ago. He holds anger towards me and punishes me, and lies a lot. Please pray that God will make him see how much I have changed for him over the years. Please pray for forgiveness, honesty and a loving reconciled marriage; of the letting go of past hurts for both of us. Thank you.

Please pray for Bethina’s brother, Frederick.  Bethina said he had to be rushed to the hospital (TX) due to severe chest pains.  He is in the emergency room now, and is coherent and able to talk.  Also, he and his wife are going through a separation and they have two small girls (ages 2 and 3).  He is asking my husband and me, along with my sister, to take the children.  

Cristine’s grandmother- Helen.  She is 86 years old and the doctors say she is in stage 4 cancer and has cancer in her spine, left hip and in her lymph nodes.  They are giving her chemo treatments.  Cristine asked that we pray that she would not be sick from taking the chemo treatments and that she would enjoy her days here with us until God calls her home to be with Him (and we believe for a long life here with us, pain free).  – KW

Healing

I have three friends of mine who live with constant pain and I’d really appreciate if could pray for them. Mary, Doug, and Mike are their names. They pretty much live with pain 24/7, but they usually don’t talk much about it, so I have to ask specific questions if i really want to know how they’re doing.

God’s Loving Comfort

I have a friend who’s co-worker’s son just died, which was kind of a shock, since he was only 33 years old. I’m praying for God to comfort the family. I’m not sure where they are spiritually, but thanks again for your prayers.

Salvation
