We’re All In This Together October 18, 2010

Justice Thurgood Marshall is acclaimed as one of the greatest fighters of civil rights. Born in Baltimore in 1908, he was well acquainted with “a hand up.” Long before he became the first  African-American to serve on the Supreme Court, he understood the concept of “tribe.”  Justice Marshall quoted this statement referencing the help of others, “None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody bent down and helped us pick up our boots.”

Prayer is a daunting and often thankless activity; to do it alone requires a bit of maturity. As a society, we are accustomed to tooting our own horns. But not with this assignment. Other than our Prayer Call reports, silence is still golden.  There’s no one to brag to, and there’s no one available to pat you on the back. You go it alone, and yet you’re not really alone. There are thousands of other devoted pray-ers just like yourself. They range from newbies to seasoned intercessors. Yet a common thread unites us: our love for Him, and our love for them. It’s our love for our heavenly Father, and a love for his creation, that gives us the stamina to tow the line. The rewards and the applause (if any), come from above. However, PrayColumbus is here to encourage you and cheer you across the finish line.

Additionally, we want to provide you with resources that will assist you in your prayer development. One such resource is a 52-week Prayer Course offered to you by Alice and Eddie Smith. It is a wonder source of insight and encouragement that comes to you via email. And its FREE. That’s right. Absolutely FREE. They ask nothing at all for the course, except that you take it and learn from it. Their desire is to see the Body of Christ equipped, and this is one of their many contributions toward that goal.

You’ll find the link at the end of this post. Feel free to share it with your family, friends and co-workers. Make it a part of your weekly Bible study, whether personal or in a small group. However you choose to use it is fine – just use it.
