Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/05/12

This week’s scripture is from 1 Timothy:

“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone… This is good, and pleases God our Savior,  who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”    (1 Tim. 2:1,3-4)

It is a blessing to pray for others, to intercede for them with the Lord, for no good thing happens in ministering before the Lord, especially for others, that does not first start with prayer, for prayer is the power, the direct line to the Lord. We are our brother’s  keeper; we are one body in Christ; we are His hands; we are His witnesses. Let us come before the Lord Our Maker, Our Savior, and pray for the needs of others, intercede for them with the Father, and in thanksgiving ask the Lord of Hosts to save souls, to be servants of the truth of Jesus Christ in a lost and dying world. In all this, let us speak the truth in love.

May the Lord be pleased with your requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving for others.
