Prayer that Focuses on Others
We always thank God for all of you and pray for you constantly.
Instead of submitting personal requests for prayer, Mangrove encourages The Church to engage in intercessory prayer for one another.
DEVOTE YOURSELVES TO PRAYER BEING WATCHFUL AND THANKFUL
Mangrove allows you to post prayers on a map, allowing others to pray with you, creating virtual prayer meetings across the city.
What is a Mangrove
Mangroves are a type of tree found along coastal areas around the world. They thrive in harsh coastal environments where the tides ebb and flow. A single mangrove plant provides safe community and resources to an abundance of living creatures.
A METAPHOR FOR PRAYER
The real impact of the mangrove tree happens when several mangrove trees intertwine their roots with each other. When this happens they create thriving ecosystems; they stop erosion; they restore coastlines; and they protect against storm damage.
The Church should not act like a bunch of single trees. We should be intertwined like mangroves. Prayer for one another is the first way the Church needs to be engaging across the city. When our prayers reach out into the community, connect, and intertwine with the prayers of other Christ Followers the Church starts to live, love, and connect in unity providing safe havens and resources, stopping the erosion of communities and providing protection from the storms.
