1 Timothy 2:1,3-4 “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone,...This is right and is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
Who do you pray for? What do you pray for? How do you pray?
I started keeping a prayer journal a while back, admittedly because I forget things if I don’t write them down. I look through it in the mornings as I pray and lift up the people and situations that I see in there. I give thanks for the answered prayers. This is on the good days.
There are days I struggle to focus and my prayers are not focused either. I trust the Lord knows my heart and scripture says the Spirit will intercede when words fail me in prayer.
I encourage you to pray with me. I lift up the leaders of my town, my state and my nation. I lift the leaders of the UN up to the Lord. I lift up my neighbors, believers and unbelievers, children and adults. I lift up the pastors of churches across the world. I lift up marriages that are struggling and marriages that are strong. I pray for the soldiers of this nation and other nations. I pray...
Your word tells us to pray without ceasing and when I begin to pray, I see an unending need for prayer in this world. Help us pray to you regularly so we stay in tune to your Spirit always and all ways. I ask this in Jesus name and to the glory and purpose of your kingdom. Amen.
