(A VISION FOR CHRISTIAN SONG, by Ken Bible; p.67)

Then, having prayed for them and trusted the Lord to work through them, I can more easily rely

on them and be submissive to them. And when I still feel I must disagree, I can do so in a non-

defensive, non-territorial manner, remembering it is God's work, not mine, and He will

accomplish it.

Sometimes we feel that if everyone would just leave us alone, if we weren't so dependent on

others, everything would be terrific. The Bible declares that that simply isn't so. Each of us has a

particular role to play. By ourselves, we are so limited. We were designed to work most

efficiently and productively in relationship to others. We are each like one part of the body that

must work with other parts if the whole body is to function successfully. God created us to be

dependent not only on himself but on each other.

Prayer is the best way to make such relationships work. Through prayer, we lift up those on

whom we are dependent. Through prayer, we maintain the right attitude toward them. Prayer for

fellow workers fosters the unity and interdependence essential for all of us to be and do our best

together.

And through prayer, we keep our faith focused on God's will and on His ability to accomplish

that will through us, not just through me.
