Rosary Prayer Team Details - 2

These next few days I wish to share what we can do as a Prayer Team. Our goal is obviously to pray for one another and others, but even deeper than that, we can really commit to this task. We can reflect on these few thoughts today: 1.As a prayer team, we can recharge one another’s emotional and spiritual batteries effectively and with the synergy and excitement, this can be tremendous for us individually and as a team. 2. As a prayer team we can each have our own personal prayer list, one that we constantly add names to, and one that we keep close to us while we pray. 3. As a prayer team we will share amongst each other, some of the most valuable gifts one could ever have. These gifts are of the spiritual nature, the world would ever understand the depths of all this, so we will pray for them.
Let us look at the first thought in these three reflections: As a team, we can recharge one another’s emotional and spiritual batteries effectively and with synergy and excitement. This is so exciting and to know that all of us have this ability to do this is even more exciting. As prayer team members we understand the value and need for prayer, and we really understand how important it is for us as a team to unite together in prayer. With that said, we are able to comfort, and embrace one another when things get tough, and when we feel under spiritual attack, and even when we have times of doubt.
Now looking at the second reflection: As a prayer team we can each have our own prayer lists of names; including families, groups, leaders, and so much more. Here is my method; some of you may want to adopt this method. Inside my bible in the center section that divides the old and new testament, I have a couple of blank pages. I would guess from all my years of seeing so many bibles, that you do have blank pages somewhere within your bible. Well on that page I have a section devoted to those people I know and even don’t know that have passed away, souls that I pray for daily. And then in another section I have family, friends, neighbors, and even a section of people I don’t particularly like, some may title it enemies of people who openly, publically sin. Those people need our prayers so much, and I believe it is our job as a prayer team to be praying for them. Jesus died for them to. So let us unite with Him loving them. The greatest gift anyone can give another is prayer, nothing on earth, even everything on earth combined won’t ever equal the value of someone’s prayers for another.
Here’s the final thought for today: We get to share amongst each other, shared prayers for one another and for each other. If there is anything on earth that you want to be part of, it should be a team of believers who pray together. Our environment is one of prayer; we seek nothing of this world, only the opportunity to care for others in offering our love and our prayers for them to the Father. God knows our hearts; He knows how much we really care for others. Our prayers for them only further show Him that we really live an unselfish life devoted to loving Him. May God always guide our hearts and may He always help us stay on track. More to share tomorrow.
