Prayer and Ministry: The Ability to Equip the Church

When the word ministry is mentioned, many things come to your mind. In the life of a believer in Christ, a special task has been set-aside for you, although it could be more than one particular task.

When you receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, you automatically gain power, but many have misunderstood that power. That power is the birth of your ministry and the planting of a seed in a renewed garden. The way how that seed get to grow and blossom into your ministry is through pray.

That seed you have received is not the spirit of the world, but the spirit, which is of God, So, you must connect with God, and the way that you connect with God is through prayer, that you would know the things that are freely given to you of God, in order for you to fulfill your ministry.

The Apostle Paul said unto the church of Corinth, concerning spiritual gifts, he would not have them ignorant, that they should know that they speak by the spirit of God called Jesus Christ, if you say Jesus is Lord, it is by the Holy Ghost you speak.

Your gift is your ministry, there are diversities of ministry, but it is the same God, which worketh all in all. Gifts are given to all man to profit withal, whether there be healing, faith or miracles, you ministry is from God. Your ministry is part of a body that is needed to make up a whole. Your ministry would not survive without extensive prayer.

(11 Corinthians 12:14) – “For the body is not one member, but many”. (KJV)

The body is the complete church of God, this is called the body of Christ. In order for Gods body to function accurately, every ministry needs to be operational, less the body is disabled or malfunctioning.

If you take a look at the natural body, if all of its parts are not functioning as they were created to work, it’s very defaults to walk on one foot, even if you have a prostrated or a wooden leg. After a while you will get used to using that false leg, but it’s not like the one that needs to be attached to the body. In the same way your individual ministry is needed for the body to be complete. Your minister needs to be attached.

For example, healing by itself is of no good without faith. In the same way speaking in tongues is of no good without the spirit to clarify what is said, all ministry is needed. Prayer ministry absolutely needs to function in the church at all times. This is the ministry that the church is depending on. God looks to the prayers warriors to fight the enemy, head on with prayer.

The purpose of the prayer ministry team is to actively encourage and promote prayer within the life of the church, by being open and responsive to the working of the Holy Spirit. The church must prayer that God’s love, guidance and healing power would be released for the benefit of His people and to His glory.
