Prayer for LGBT Believers (5/8/2018)

How would you answer this question? Which group is the smallest, most rejected minority in our country?

African-Americans have certainly suffered terribly through our history…Perhaps it is Native Americans?…What about the LGBT community?…

Ironically, the group that can lay claim to being the smallest and most rejected minority in America today once was part of the LGBT community. They once identified as gay or lesbian or bisexual or transgender, but they no longer do. Today, they are “ex-gay” or “ex-trans.”

Their numbers are very small, since they came out of a small community to start with. And it is only a small percentage of that small group who make a break with the rest of the LGBT community.

Most of them make that break because of their religious faith, often newly found.

(Smallest and Most Rejected Minority in America by Dr. Michael Brown, columnist at WND.com. The entire column can be seen here.)

My prayer today:

Lord, help us not despise the day of small beginnings in seeing people delivered from LGBT lifestyles, but help us to increase our faith and efforts, knowing that You came to set the captives free and destroy the works of the Devil. (Based on   Zechariah 4:10, Luke 4:10 and 1 John 3:8)

What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?

Prayers for LGBT Believers (5/1/2018)

 

Francis Chan talking on homosexuality:

“The reason gays have a problem with the church is that we treat their sin as so much worse than the others. We will excommunicate people for homosexuality but not for divorce. And I do it for divorce. Divorce is a terrible sin in the sight of God…

“It’s also what  I said about singleness. This isn’t about sexuality as much as it is about surrendering to the Kingdom and being a person about the Kingdom. Look, if I’m single for the rest of my life, that’s not the biggest thing in my life. It’s not my sexuality or my sexual urges which define who I am.

“I find my identity — are you kidding me? I can actually speak to God. I can be His servant. I’m going to be with Him forever. Where’s my identity found in?

“A lot of these sin issues are secondary. The bottom line – let’s just start here. Whatever issues you are dealing with today…Are you willing to surrender to God? No matter what He says. What if He said in this book [Bible] that Chinese people have to stand on their heads? Just an example, but I will try to stand on my head. He’s God! What if He said Chinese people don’t get to marry? He’s God. I don’t like that but I’m going to surrender to that because I understand the difference between a Creator and a created being. So whatever!

“And before we get to what this book [Bible] actually says, I have to say, ‘Will you surrender? If you disagree with God on an issue, would you still submit to Him?’ I really believe that is the core issue here.

“Then if so, because that’s the type of person I want to be also, let’s look at this book [Bible] together. A lot of following Jesus is about denying yourself and pick up your cross and follow Me. A lot of this is about beating your body and making it your slave. It’s about not doing the things you very much want to do. That’s the core issue.

“Two guys walking in, holding hands. That’s not the first thing I’d address. I really think we jump to that too quickly, rather than saying, ‘At the core of your being, do you believe in a Creator and if He is your Creator, would you surrender to whatever He asks for you to do? Maybe I’m wrong on this thing. Let’s study together and then you tell me.

“From my personal understanding of this book [Bible], it [homosexuality] appears to be a sin to me. But if you study it and your best personal conclusion is that it is not. Help me understand that from scripture and not from reasoning. Because we all reason and we all fight for the things we want.” (See full video here.)

My prayer today:

Lord, help American Christians to follow Your example of reasoning together with LGBT believers, allowing You to be Lord and us to be Your flawed disciples. (Based on Isaiah 1:18)

What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?

Prayers for LGBT Believers

 

Most believers, including me, would love to have a LGBT person give his or her life to the Lord and presto! Every LGBT desire would instantly be removed from the person’s life.

Yet, it seldom works that way!

But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body [of Christ] just as He pleased… In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary. (1 Corinthians 12:18, 23)

My prayer today:

Lord, help the Body of Christ to care for each member as You do because he or she is necessary and if one member suffers, help us all to suffer with them so that there is no division in the Body. (Based on 1 Corinthians 12:25-26)

What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
