Prayer

Question: What are the things we should pray for?

We find in the Bible many things according to God’s will which we should pray for.
We need to know that the purpose of prayer is to glorify God (Jn 12:28) and for
God’s will to be done (Lk 22:42).

What are the things we should pray for?

We can pray to God about everything, but we must not go against God’s will or glory. We cannot receive what is in keeping with God’s will unless we ask for it. As for what is against God’s will, we will not receive even if we ask for it (Jas 4:2-3).

Below are the two broad categories of what we should pray for:

We should pray for the church:

1. Ask the Lord to send out workers to harvest (Mt 9:38).

2. Pray that God may open a door for our message so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ
(Col 4:3).

3. Pray for given words that we may fearlessly make known the mystery of the Gospel (Eph 6:19-20).

4. Pray that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honoured (2 Thess 3:1).

5. Pray for God to renew His deeds in our day (Heb 3:2).

6. Pray for the Lord to stretch out His hand and perform miraculous signs and wonders (Acts 4:30).

7. Pray for believers that they may receive the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:14-15).

We should pray for one’s spiritual life:

1. Pray and ask for the Holy Spirit (Lk 11:13; Jn 4:10; 7:38-39).

2. Ask the Lord to teach us His way (Ps 86:11; Jn 14:26; 1 Cor 2:13).

3. Ask God to strengthen us with power through His Spirit in our inner being (Eph 3:16)

4. Ask God for the Spirit of wisdom and revelation that we may know Him better (Eph 1:17; Jas 1:5).

5. Ask God to teach us to do His will (Ps 143:10; Heb 13:21; Col 4:4).

6. Pray that the Lord increases our love and faith (1 Thess 3:10-12).

7. Pray in the Holy Spirit that we may be kept in God’s love (Jude 20-21).
