Encouraging Words 9/8/09-"When Queers Pray

From Queermergent:

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you abide in me, and I in you, you will produce much fruit. Apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)

What if…queers were to start praying and interceding en-masse?

What if…God has a really cool, white-hot purpose for the LGBT community?

What if…Martin Luther was right when he said that “God does nothing except in response to believing prayer”?

What if…we are supposed to partner with God through prayer in order to release His power?

What if…God knows our needs and knows all about the injustices queer people suffer, but won’t do anything until we start praying earnestly about it?

What if…if we fail to pray, we miss the boat on moving the Holy Spirit to work on behalf of the queer community?

What if…if we try to gain equality on our own steam we miss God’s plan for us and go off on a tangent?

What if…Jesus meant it when He said “apart from me you can do nothing”?

This is a longer essay that we usually post, but it is worth investing the time to read it. Click here to do so.
