Paul told the Colossian believers “We always give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ when we pray for you.”
How much should we pray? We are to pray without ceasing. We are to bring our requests to God. We are to pray for the sick. Where two or three are gathered He is in our midst. He hears our prayers. He knows our needs before we ask. If we know all of those things to be true, why don’t we pray more and believe He will answer.
This is on my heart today to pray for:
*For the 10 month old baby at Vanderbilt recently diagnosed with cancer.
*For the 42 year old man who has heart failure.
*For our neighbors who recently got married that God would bless them.
*For the 96 year old man who recently had a stroke.
*For the friend battling ALS.
*For the man in the nursing home all alone who found out his daughter is dying from a brain tumor.
*For our niece who has been sick for so many years.
*For the young man recovering from Lyme’s disease.
*For direction for a young lady on her own spiritual journey.
*For our widowed mother and mother-in-law.
*For my husband’s health.
*For our children to hear God’s voice in the decisions they make.
*For our nephew and his wife serving as missionaries in the Ukraine.
*For our president that he would seek God in all of his decisions.
*For the hurricane to weaken and that lives would be spared.
*For all of the instability in the world and that the leaders would hear God’s voice and turn to Him.
Lord, hear my prayers.
