The reason this board is being created:
I believe that the greatest gift we can give someone, aside from telling them about the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, is to pray for them. God knows the beginning from the end, however He still wants us to pray for our fellow believers as well as the unsaved.
God is not restrained by time or location. He is everywhere, all the time. So whether a person in need lives in South Africa or in a small suburb of South Dakota, GOD IS THERE, ALWAYS!
While I do not believe God always answers our prayers exactly as we ask them or in the time frame we always expect, God DOES answer all prayers. As believers we have to trust that God knows what is best for EVERY situation, and trust that He will be faithful to let HIS will be done.
"Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done." Luke 22:42
I started this board because I want to start compiling a list of PRAYER WARRIORS. Believers that will agree to pray for any requests posted on this board. I will keep an on-going list of those PRAYER WARRIORS listed in the IBOX, and will update it as often as possible. These people have a great responsibility, and yet a great OPPORTUNITY, to help change the world one person at a time.
This board is not about me or any of the other PRAYER WARRIORS; it is about our heavenly Father and bringing the needs of other believers and those around the world, to our Father in heaven.
If you will agree to join me in being a PRAYER WARRIOR, simply post on the public thread your wish to join me, and I will add your name to the IBOX. You and I simply agree that when a prayer request is posted on the message board, we will pray for that person or situation. Simple as that!
Prayer request can be posted on the public thread
If however a matter is private in nature and someone doesn't want to post the details of the need on the public thread, they can do one of two things:
1. PM me and I will only post on the public thread the name of the person needing the prayer (God already knows their needs anyway)
2. Just post the name of the person needing prayer on the public thread and all the PRAYER WARRIORS will pray for that person.
Again, God knows our needs before we even ask, but some may want to tell the story on the public thread, in private or not at all. Either way PRAYER WARRIORS stand ready to lift up your needs to our heavenly Father!
I hope you will join me in this simple yet powerful endeavor to lift up believers in need, as well as the unsaved!
God bless you all!
