Pray for One Another

1 07 2016

LOLConfess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16 NLT

A new phenomenon has emerged in Christian relationships with non-Christians. We are offering to pray for them when they share a need or a hurt. God responds by touching them in such a way that they know He did. It may be healing or they may feel “electricity” or heat or fire in their body. It is a reversal of traditional “witnessing” where we started with their sin and their “lostness” rather than their pain.

This is patterned after the Luke 10 model of first blessing, then fellowship, then sharing their hurts and then prayer. It is at this point, after God acts, that we can share the Kingdom of God.

Speak peace (blessing) – “But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ Luke 10:5

Eat and fellowship – “And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give,” Luke 10:6

Heal the hurts – “And heal the sick there,” Luke 10:9a

Share the Gospel – “say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’” Luke 10:9b

A friend in our home group has been praying for people out in the marketplace for several months with supernatural healing testimonies every week. Another friend is spending the summer in Germany sharing Jesus with Muslim refugees and also seeing supernatural results. He has talked to several who have a story of “a man in white” in their dreams, leading to salvation and baptism. Some even experience severe persecutions from other Muslims and their own families.

The key is to pray with them. We all need to offer to pray for anyone who shares their pain and need with us. It is what allows Yehovah God the Father to touch them through Jesus and the Holy Spirit; in a way that opens their heart to His Kingdom.

For King Jesus and for His Kingdom!
