I’m calling our teaching today ‘ Praying For The Saints. ‘ And it is important brothers and sisters that we learn to pray one for another. The Apostle Paul.. was constantly asking for prayer and praying for the church. It’s very important this.

Brethren, pray for us. 1Thessalonians 5:25

Paul was never too proud to ask for prayer, yet we find that we can be a little bit too proud. ‘ Well no I don’t need prayer, I’m alright, I stand firm with God. ‘ But sometimes we do go through very severe and deep trials. Sometimes it is good to ask the saints ‘ Please will you stand with me in prayer ‘. You don’t have to go through long details of what you’re going through.Praying For The Saints

Picking it up in the Spirit

If saints really are praying for one another you pick it up in the Spirit. One is hurting we are all hurting. If one is going through a deep trial we go through that. If you are sensitive and if you really desire to pray one for another you will pick this up in the Spirit. And no finer way than when you’re speaking in tongues. How God can just burden, and put that burden there or whatever it is so that you just pray it through. Many many times we have experienced that.

Colossians 4:12 Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

Praying For The Saints

..That was that mans prayer and intercession – praying for the Saints. Praying for the Apostles – the ministry. What is he praying here. Well it says quite clearly that they may stand perfect and complete in Christ. What a wonderful prayer – knowing the will of God…

..As I say so often we go so far as we’re prepared to pray and intercede for the church – for ministry and for one another. We are going to come to perfection – maturity by praying one for another. Not destroying one another with our prayers or our prejudices.
