What To Pray About.
WHAT TO PRAY ABOUT. In telling Christians to pray that God's kingdom will come, Jesus shows that Christians should want people and nations to acknowledge God's authority. Jesus taught often about the kingdom of God, pointing out that it is not a territory over which God reigns, but the rule that he exercises. Christians should pray for this rule in their own lives and in the lives of others, whether in individuals, in nations or in the world at large. In other words, they should pray for God's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Jesus' prayer goes on to show that, through prayer is concerned with these timeless and worldwide matters, it is concerned also with the most ordinary and everyday matters, such as the provision of food to eat. No areas of life are too great or too small to pray about. In addition to physical needs, there are spiritual needs, therefore, Jesus shows that prayer should include confession of sin. Each day brings fresh difficulties, but Christians have the assurance that hey need not fight the battles alone Jesus encourages them to ask God's help in hese matters, so that when they meet troubles and testings, they will not fall into wrong doing.. Through prayer they can learn how to trust in God and not be anxious. Often prayer will end with a further expression of praise to God, such as, "for yours,the power is the kingdom, the power and the glory. It may be close with the woman. Amen. In its original language, the word amen meant certain or true, and was used to confirm the truth of a statement. When used thoughtfully, " can "amen", can express the sincerity of the person who is praying or the agreement of one who is listening. Either way it means, 'Yes, Lord, may it be so. PRAYER POINTS. I command every gates closed against me financially to open in Jesus name. I command every of my financial blessings that has been withheld to be released in Jesus name. Amen.
