Let’s pray for each other

November 3, 2020 | 2 comments

It’s the first Tuesday of the month! Join in our community practice of silence for ten minutes. Use this zoom link and use the phrase “bestill” when asked for a code to enter. We will start at 7:00 a.m. MST (time zone converter) and remember that the U.S. experienced a time change this weekend. See you there!


The Holy Spirit nudged me to create space for us to pray for each other. Using scripture, here are four areas to guide us:

“How abundant are the good things
that you have stored up for those who fear you,
that you bestow in the sight of all,
on those who take refuge in you.” Psalm 31:19

Maybe you are needing a dose of God’s good things. Maybe you are needing God as your refuge now in ways that you haven’t before. Maybe you are luxuriating in the abundance of good things right now.

How can we pray for you or praise with you in light of this verse?

*****

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love.
Whoever lives in love lives in God,
and God in them. (1 John 4:16)

Maybe you have been flooded with God’s love for you recently. Maybe you know in your head God loves you, but it’s hard for your heart to rely on God’s love. Maybe you need prayer to “live in love” with teammates or local friends.

How can we pray for you or praise with you in light of this verse?

*****

“Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun.” Psalm 37:5-6

Do you feel you commit to the Lord, but He doesn’t commit to you? Have you felt rewarded? Any areas you need holy vindication? This verse holds tremendous truth wrapped in God’s mysterious ways. 

How can we pray for you or praise with you in light of this verse?

*****

“Though he slay me,
yet will I trust in him:
but I will maintain mine own ways before him.” Job 13:15

Are you found with Job, feeling like you are slayed, yet holding on to trusting in God? Sometimes we are called to embrace our thorns. Are you being slayed? Maybe a better question is “how are you being slayed” now?

How can we pray for you or praise with you in light of this verse?

*****

In the comments share requests and areas we can rejoice with you — also know you are invited to share as much or as little as you’d like. Please come back as more prayers are added and pray for each other by either commenting “I prayed” or writing out a prayer. All forms are welcome! No pressure to pray like others, this isn’t about how we pray or words we use. It’s about praying for each other.

    Father, as many of your servants around the world pray, we want to uphold these ministries and the love for each person in these areas of service. We are one body, serving you as servants of the most High God. Answer our cries, and show us your will. Protect your servants and heal their minds and hearts and souls in this most difficult year but also for healing in America as well in the lands where we serve. Help us to pray for the unattended fields….harvest fields that we need to open our eyes to. Thank you Father for You carry us thru these times with your holy arms lifted to the Father.
