Praying with diverse Christ-followers

My wife and I have for years have been praying heart-to-heart with diverse Christ-followers (from various churches and even those who are done with traditional church). On the phone, online, or in person, we meet with one or more other believers and pray with and for each other. It’s a beautiful thing.

Currently God is leading us to reach out to more people. In the past few months, He has introduced us to 4 new couples who are passionate about Jesus — two in their 30s and two in their 60s — who don’t know each other. We’ve been praying individually with all 4 couples, plus we have several other individuals and couples we pray with often. It’s amazing to experience the deep unity and power of the Spirit even though none of us go to church together.

Experience the unity of the body of Christ. Regularly pray with various Christians who don’t go to church with you. The family of God is far bigger than any church. Those who are led by the Spirit are the children of God — true family members. The best way to get to know your brothers and sisters in Christ is to pray with them one on one or in small groups. Try it and see!

Christ’s body encompasses genuine Christ-followers from “every kindred and every tribe.” Go beyond your church and experience amazing heart-connections. Discover the supernatural unity of all true Jesus-followers. Open your heart to pray with and connect with all who follow Him.

I want to see a world-wide move of God awaken millions of church attendees to the moment-by-moment reality of the fruit of the Spirit, the gifts of the Spirit, and daily, heart-to-heart, Spirit-led connection with the risen Jesus. Praying with diverse Christ-followers is a step in that direction.

God wants to give you invisible visions that are seen with your heart awakened to the reality of Christ in you. Learning to pray with others will open the door of your heart.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
