For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, se we though many, are on in Christ and individually members of one another.
We are learning how the word of God allows us to interact with him in Prayer. This does not take the place of proper bible study. Rightly dividing the word of God would include interpretation, context and staying as close to the original meaning for application. But a prayer can be initiated by just one word or phrase. For me today it has to do with the body working together.
Father, I love You. I thank you for giving me a purpose and function in the body of Christ. It is important that I do my part so that I can support the efforts of the whole body.
Today, my lower spinal disc is causing me pain. It hurts after I during and after I have been sitting. In fact, it is letting the rest of my body know that it hurts. At times there is no pain. When it is performing its function properly. The rest of my body doesn’t if remember its existence.
Sot it is with the body of Christ, Many times when we are functioning properly, most never see or acknowledge our contributions. We may fail to see the importance of our activity of doing what we feel like you created us to do or be. BUT you Father always notice. And when we are hurting or stop doing our part…the body suffers.
Thanks again for loving me. I speak to every part of my body to work as you designed it to work. Disc line up, organs operate, mind be influenced by the Spirit, and lungs be clear. In Jesus name, Amen.
