I am still a little sore and uncomfortable, but am going to attempt to post this message. I am only a week into recovery after surgery, so may not be on every day!
This is an appropriate time to discuss praying for courage together at the Prayer Gates. So much has happened in the year 2012, in the world, and in our own personal lives. My own situations going into the year 2013, that I think we need that shot in the arm we can get from gathering to pray for courage.We each may relate to this a little differently. Some may have suffered a personal loss, others are struggling in different ways. And across the earth, violence, hunger, homelessness, and dislocation are occurring; making it easy to suffer from discouragement.
But we are to take courage; for the Lord has not abandoned us; nor forsaken us.
15.)Therefore by Him lest us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to this name.
So let us gather in the name of Jesus, and pray together for courage; specifically, and give praise to Him, also. And if you are like me and can not gather with others, please take some time to pray for courage for yourself and others, and to praise and thanks Him. We can cordinate and make this a mighty prayer, but even uncoordinated the Lord will hear our prayer, and respond! He will answer our Prayers!
