What is a Prayer Partner and How to Find One? We all sin. We all do things that we don't like to do. Like you, we are all human. And we all fall short. Romans 3:23 says that, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Sin is fun. Admit it. You love to do those things you are doing. Until you realize that you are sinning, and that God does not like that. But how do you stop? It is hard to stop on our own. We need the support of other people many times. That is what a prayer partner is all about. What is a prayer partner? A prayer partner is a Christian friend who will encourage you in your walk with God. There are 3 main goals for a prayer partner - they pray for you on a regular basis, they talk with you on a regular basis, and they regularly ask you spiritual questions. Why should you have a prayer partner? A prayer partner provides… • Positive peer pressure – They help encourage you to make wise, godly decisions. o 1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. • Help in times of trouble – When you are struggling with home issues, friends, school, etc.; a prayer partner is someone you can call on to talk with and you know they’ll listen to you. o Ecclesiastes 4:9 It's better to have a partner than go it alone. Share the work, share the wealth. And if one falls down, the other helps, But if there's no one to help, tough!
