Your Brother's Keeper
The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man accomplishes much. James 5:16
Reading Francis Frangipane, this witnessed to me because when the enemy seeks to bring us to a place of contention or division with one or more people, we must discern this satanic activity as a plot to keep us all from a blessing that God intended for us. Thus, we must turn quickly to intercession for that person or church.
This prayer posture must expand beyond our immediate church relationships into the citywide body of Christ. We are our brother’s keeper. We must recognize that if we are to be effective in resisting the enemy, the church will have to become a house of prayer.
Lord, I ask You to grant us the gift of discernment. Forgive me for judging others and for failing to see the work of the enemy who seeks to divide us. Father, help us submit to the mind of Christ; I ask for His perception so that we would Have insight into what You are doing in the church. In Jesus’s name, amen.
