GrannieAnnie,thanks for the reply.Interesting thought. But I'm not sure I agree.I'm not offended in any way, nor am I debating, just not sure what to think about your post.When we gather together to pray, we do so to be in one accord, of like mind, whether we hold hands or not.
There are centuries of evidence that a prayer circle is unscriptural and a pagan practice.
Hi Sentry,I guess I didn't express it clear enough.I meant when not with your regular group.Like when I said "having" to... as if, if I don't or do, would make a difference, because it's God Who makes things happen.I guess, what I meant, or the author means, is "is it necessary" or would some sort of 'lack' happen if we didn't everytime, with everyone.We lead a youth group years ago, and a guy came in and the girls complained to me, that he gave them 'the creeps' for weeks, so I prayed about it, and the Lord told me to take him outside and ask him directly, if he had given his life intentionally to satan ... unfortunately, he admitted he had and said, "for power" ... even though, verbally he had said, when he first joined us, that he was a Christian.Sorry for the confusion.All His Best.Annie

You will be further led and see other things happening ,through God, for the needs of all you pray for. In that he will show other things, that he would have you do in matter. Keep on praying. I will also pray as they are the kind of people who my heart reaches out too. So when I pray for my area, I will pray your area too.PS Repent to God of the word, 'stupid' and what it meant to you. Ask for his Forgivness, Mercy and Grace. Look up 'the biblical word stupid'I believe we are not supposed to use this word.I am going to place a Posting about this word. Maybe find out some informationGod bless you.ellie
