This post is about the benefits of corporate prayer groups!
Before I start, I would like to say…
Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well! ❤️
I wanted to drop by to share with you a highlight for my week!
I have been part of a women’s prayer group that meets via teleconferencing on Fridays. It has been enjoyable and empowering.
Therefore, I thought of sharing a bit about my experience! The group members are diligent and time conscious, I feel that we are all in tune with each other.
Here are four benefits that I have experienced in corporate prayer/prayer groups!
BENEFITS OF CORPORATE PRAYER!
Mutual encouragement & accountability
In the past, I found myself cutting my personal prayer sessions short or procrastinating because I didn’t have encouragement or accountability. Now, I feel encouraged by other group members to improve my prayer life!
I love the way we get together and pray not only for each other but for our country as well!
Purpose and fulfillment
I can’t explain it, but I feel a renewed purpose in my spiritual life as I can stand in the gap for not only my loved ones but others as well!
Honestly, I always look forward to Fridays. Firstly, because in our household, it’s our chick fila 🐤 day! Then this prayer meeting is another icing on the cake!
🌸If I could sum up my overall experience aside from the four benefits I have highlighted, it would be summed up with this verse:
17 As iron sharpens iron,
so one person sharpens another.
I recently wrote another blog post that speaks about my corporate prayer. The blog post is titled, “Zoom Prayer Meeting”
BIBLICAL INFORMATION ABOUT PRAYING TOGETHER!
The following are biblical mentions of the power of praying together OR having groups:
19 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
**When I read this verse, I just think of people being in agreement and encouraging each other! I can concur (as I stated earlier), that I do feel good when I pray as a group. We are able to motivate and encourage each other.
9 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! 11 Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? 12 And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
**When I read this verse, it tells me about the support believers give each other. If you are going through a difficult season, another person can stand in the gap for you!
Quick Question– Are you involved in a regular prayer meeting, small group, bible study, or something similar?
I hope that you are all finding ways to have fellowship with brethren!
