The Power of the Prayer Chain

bonds

I’ve often said I love that thing that happens between women. I especially love that thing that happens between women when they prayer together. Today I experience one of those incredibly beautiful moments. In my ladies bible study class today, our teacher Isabelle asked us to do something different at the end of class. She asked us to do a prayer chain. A prayer chain is where everyone holds hands and says a prayer and/or a prayer request. If you aren’t comfortable you could squeeze the person’s had to indicate that you wanted to pass. In our class today that didn’t happen. Every single woman all unique said a prayer and it was powerful in an overwhelmingly incredible way, that reminds you of the beauty of being part of the body of Christ. The words, the emotions, the intentions seeped into my heart releasing me and blessing me in so many ways. When it came around to me my voice begin to quiver as I prayed for wisdom on raising my daughter. The tears can begin to flow and I know every woman in that room felt my genuine prayer just as deeply as I felt them

I am so grateful for my sisters in Christ and I am immensely awesomely blessed by their presence and prayers. I realized that I want to initiate the chain of prayer outside of church too! We need one another’s support, prayers and love every day. All of us have bondage that holds onto us trying to drag us down and hold us back, but when we join in prayer together those chains begin to loosen and the heaviness starts to melt away. What better way can we support and love one another than through the power of prayer. I want to thank Isabelle today for having the courage to initiate the prayer chain and encourage us to take the masks off and trust God and each other.
