We see it every day.
Our brothers and sisters.
Our friends and neighbors.
Our customers and coworkers.
People are hurting.
The holiday season is fast approaching which means for some, that pain, despair and grief will magnify.
But friends, there is something we can do.
The answer is prayer.
Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.”James 5:13-18
One of the most powerful gifts God has given us is the invitation to come to Him with our petitions. His ears are open, his heart is waiting. He wants us to come to him. And he also wants us to come to him on behalf of our brothers and sisters.
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”Galatians 6:3
We, the authors of Pens and Prayers invite you to join us this Christmas season for The Secret Jesus Prayer Project.
The idea is simple.
This Christmas we want to bring the miracle of Christ’s love to our brothers and sister.
When you sign up to be a “Secret Jesus” we will give you the name of someone who needs your prayers. As a “Secret Jesus” each of us will promise to pray daily over the name of our “Special Friend” during the Advent Season (Beginning Sunday, November 27.)
Then in celebration of Jesus’ birthday, we’ll send our “Special Friend” an inspirational book of our choice to encourage them in the coming year. You’ll have the option to sign up to send and receive a paperback book or an ebook depending on your preference.
To join us in The Secret Jesus Prayer Project, please just fill out this FORM.
