FIND A FAMILY PRAYER PARTNER
Scripture is chalk-full of instructions on prayer. We’re told when to pray, why to pray, where to pray, how often to pray, what to pray, etc. James spends some time in his letter instructing us to pray for each other. In order to begin doing that, though, we must have someone for whom we can pray and someone who will pray for us. Fill out the form below to get partnered with another family. You can tell your family prayer partner what is going on in your family’s life and what specifically needs to be prayed for. They can do the same for you. Then, you pray. Pray together with your family prayer partner, pray with your own family for your family prayer partner, pray at home, pray at church, pray without ceasing (I think the Bible might say something like that). Your information will be shared with one family with whom you will be partnered so that you can contact each other. Remember, even the great Elijah was just a man with a nature like ours. Prayer is powerful. Use it for a family in your community and allow it to be used for your family.
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.
