The "One Part" Assigned by God...What is Yours?
ABOVE: Click on for a special short video on St. Patrick's Breastplate...a powerful personal, providential and warrior prayer. Oh, that we would pray like this.
Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 1 Corinthians 12:12-13
It was getting loud Monday night at Panera Bread on New Scotland Ave. in Albany. Ten of us were meeting to plan the upcoming “OneChurch” prayer services for Albany. It was both fun and serious as we laugh together, prayed together, talk together; considering how the next few prayer services will look. It was interesting many different denominations and cultures represented at our meeting.
It made me think of Paul speaking in 1Corinthians 12, the body is made up of many parts, both our physical body and spiritually in Christ; the parts together in unison. It is so exciting to be a part of like-minded people looking to draw the Church together to seek God.
[Editor's Note: If you're not from the Albany, New York area, pray for your own region's gatherings for prayer leading up to National Day of Prayer. If you're not in America, pray for your town or city and country.]
For those in Albany area:
I encourage you to try to come out this Sunday night at Our Saviors Lutheran Church in Albany, as we Gather at 6 to pray together. Also, mark it on your calendar for April 22nd at 6 p.m. as we meet in St John's Church of God in Christ in Downtown Albany.
Both of these prayer times are leading up to the National Day of Prayer on May 3rd. At 5:30 in the evening on May 3rd will be meeting down a Jennings Landing next to the Hudson River. Join us in prayer and if you are available, come out and join us those times for prayer. This will be a great time to bring an honor and glory to God.
PRAYER: Lord, as we gather together in Your Name, may You be Gloried!
