No one should walk alone
One of our biggest fears as humans is of being alone. In the recent survey sponsored by The Cigna Health Insurance Company, 46% of respondents reported sometimes or always feeling alone. Depression is also on the rise – 33% since 2013, and it’s higher in women than men. At Jewel Warriors, we don’t want you to feel alone. We know we can’t recover alone, and we can’t thrive alone. We desperately need each other.
We need one another to get through this life. To get through the stuff that rips your heart open. To overcome shame. To stand against the temptations of greed, lust, hate. To remind each other who we are in Christ and to remember we are not powerless.
God also tells us to encourage and pray for one another. He says we need to pray for healing, for peace, for power to be an overcomer, and for more people to come to Him (pray for open doors for the gospel to transform every people group). Maybe your loved one has a parole hearing coming up and you are anxious – we want to pray for you. Maybe your daughter was admitted to the hospital for threats of self-harm again, and you don’t know what to do. Maybe your ex is allowing your kids to watch stuff that you don’t want them to see, or your sister is running with losers and dealing drugs and you’re scared for her.
We invite you to share your prayer requests. There is nothing magical about the way we pray, and you may not see the answers to your prayers for a long time, or they may be answered differently than you hope. But God tells us to pray- to ask. He says we don’t have what we need because we didn’t ask. God can give beauty for our ashes, and joy where we were grieving. Nothing is too big for God.
On this form, we encourage you to share your concern- your prayer request, or a short testimony of what God has done for you. This is not a place to vent all of your frustrations about your situation- please give us a summary of the situation, and define a clear target for us to join you in prayer.
