What is a PrayFit
Small Group Leader?
A PrayFit Small Group Leader is a follower of Jesus, first and last. Nothing God gave us to enjoy in our pursuit of health was ever intended to be enjoyed at the mercy of our relationship with God, and that is something we take very seriously at PrayFit Ministries. Spending time in God’s word and in prayer will never be replaced with any measure of physical stewardship. The first rule of PrayFit Ministries is that we love and talk to (and about) Jesus.
- Jesus Christ was virgin-born and is the only Son of God while at the same time, being God Himself. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; I Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13.) (reference via Dr. Charles Stanley of In Touch Ministries)
A PrayFit Small Group Leader loves others. The Bible says that our love for one another is how the world will know that we are followers of Christ. In our dealings with others, private and public (social media, etc), we strive to be examples of that truth, always seeking to love others the way Jesus loves us and them.
A PrayFit Small Group Leader believes health is a gift of grace. The ability, the motivation, the resources, the training itself, the byproducts of diligence and obedience: all gifts. We do not earn gifts, but we celebrate them and flourish for God and others with them.
A PrayFit Small Group Leader sees health as an act of stewardship. What is a steward? Someone who has been given something to take care of temporarily that’s not their own. Our bodies the Bible says are not our own, but instead we are to honor God with them. Taking care of our bodies is just one way to thank God for only seeing our hearts.
A PrayFit Small Group Leader is sensitive to the needs, hurts and unseen illnesses of others. So many people around us are hurting with unforeseen infirmities. Health is a faith battle, often fought privately, painfully and with worn-out tools. We never judge someone’s health, but rather respond as a resource of comfort.
A PrayFit Small Group Leader seeks to put their faith to work. We believe faith is the most powerful tool God gave us to conquer life’s obstacles, and that includes our health. If we have the gift of health, we seek to serve those in need at home, church and in our community.
A PrayFit Small Group Leader strives to be humble and modest. We believe it takes far more strength to be humble about hard work than the hard work itself, but more importantly, God hates pride, and that’s enough for us. We will not use our faith as a platform to show off our bodies (or vice-versa).
A PrayFit Small Group Leader is a leader. When Jesus got up to wash the feet of all the disciples (even the feet of Judas), He was setting the example for all of us; that the greatest leaders are servants. And our health - our very life - is a chance to serve like Jesus served.
A PrayFit Small Group Leader is a runner, or a walker, or a lifter, or a golfer, or a student, or a mom, or a.....you get the idea. A PrayFit Small Group Leader doesn't have to be an elite athlete (or an athlete at all). If you have Jesus in your heart and you see your health (as well as illness) as a means to praise Him, and you're excited to share PrayFit Ministries with your social communities, family and friends -- then you may be a perfect PrayFit Small Group Leader.
