To be part of a community means we share in and feel each other's joy and pain.
One of the most powerful things we can do for somebody is to pray.
When a community prays together, for each other, it deepens our feeling of belonging and unifies us as a body of believers.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 says, " Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing."
By praying together for our common needs, struggles, and times of celebration, we are able to encourage and support other believers.
It is an opportunity to come together in the spirit of community unity, in a spirit of love and caring for one another, and in the spirit of deep empathy.
