WITNESSES FOR JESUS CHRISTIAN PRAYER SUPPORT MEETUP
Are you a Christian who has a loved one involved in a cult or false religion? Are any of your family members caught up in a pseudo-christian belief system, such as the Jehovah's Witnesses or Mormons? We have a particular prayer focus for people struggling with issues in coming out of these groups and also provide a prayer covering for those who minister to them. Meet caring Christians from around the world who love to pray for and minister to friends and family who have lost loved ones to cults and false religions. Share your story and receive the support and encouragement that you need to hang on to the hope that Jesus' love can reach them. Learn how to share your faith with gentleness and respect and take advantage of the opportunities to share when God opens the door (1 Peter 3:15).
How does this online Prayer Meetup work?
As with email prayer chains, requests can be posted anytime and left on the Message Board for others to read. What's lacking in that type of praying though is the sense of community and interaction as the body of Christ gathered in one accord. That is why our worldwide members also have opportunity to gather on line for a monthly prayer meeting. There is a difference! Whenever two or three are gathered in Jesus' name, he is there in our midst. When we gather for "cyber prayer" on line, we can't hold hands, see one another or hear our voices, so we type our prayers, join in reading them together and respond accordingly. This is not only more comfortable for excultists who often times have difficulty engaging in small groups at church, but also shy people as well. It's beneficial to listen to the way others pray and to experience the presence of God corporately, for someone avoiding prayer groups at church, they miss out on this. Cyber prayer is the next best thing and can also open the way to more confidence in praying in actual live groups face-to-face.
While there are many websites devoted to exposing the beliefs of false religions and providing information to those called to minister to them, we must always remember it is first and foremost God's calling and we are therefore dependent on His mercy and energy. We seek His guidance, protection, and Spirit filling so that we do not grow weary. Ministry is released, empowered and sustained by prayer. As that fire ignites, the information and research is put to much better use. Therefore, in addition to prayer we also encourage members to research information on the cults at http://www.4witness.org, http://www.4jehovah.org and http://www.4mormon.org websites and participate in our online discussions at their respective Meetup groups for former Mormons and former Jehovah's Witnesses.
