Who’s Ear Are You Whispering In?

Gossip is nothing new, especially in the form of a “prayer request.”  In fact, that’s how we got all the juicy information about fellow Christians and I am just as guilty as the other in passing on “prayer requests.”  But in reality, it’s not the number of individuals making requests to God that help another person who’s fallen, all he needs is to hear your prayers for that person a number of times.

Go and whisper no more--Pray!

Go and whisper no more–Pray!

This statement puts it in perspective.

One of the most subtle and illusive burdens God ever places on us as saints is this burden of discernment concerning others.  He gives us discernment so that we may accept the responsibility for those souls before Him and form the mind of Christ about them (see Philippians 2:5).  We should intercede in accordance with what God says He will give us, namely, “life for those who commit sin not leading to death.”

Lives and souls are at stake–take it to the L O R D in prayer–not a fellow “prayer.”
