Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
and by their prayer for you, who long for you because of the exceeding grace of God in you.
2 Corinthians 9:14
I always teach that everyone in our ministry and at St. Martins pray about a prayer partner. Someone supportive, encouraging and as well honest in their life. I used to have someone I got together with once a week to pray and just read the Word. It is a concept of mentoring or discipleship that I believe is a real blessing. It is also a very special time of of partnership in prayer that you can find focus for your life, that seems to release the anointing of God in a special way.
Many times the words shared one with another as you will pray and consider the Word. Will give insight and strength into your personal life. That will help you to correct, or maintain a Godly course in your Christian life.
Pray about that prayer partner and friend. It might not even be someone who you now don't count as a real friend, but whom's character in Christ who trust implicitly. Take advantage of that partnership of prayer. It truly is a valuable asset in our Christian life and a biblical powerful tool in God's hands. “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:19,20
