I talked about a few things that we should pray for the other day. I have continued to think about this subject and I have thought about a few more things to pray for everyday.
- Promises – Promises you ask? Yes, pray for the promises that God has given us throughout His Word. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 This is one of the promises I think about often. We need to pray for our land and follow these steps and than maybe we will have a chance to make it as a country. The Bible is full of promises that God has made, all we have to do is our part.
- Peace – God will give us the peace that passeth all understanding. In the storm, the disciples needed that peace and that calming of the storm, Jesus gave that to them. Pray for peace in your life, pray that God will give you peace with the decisions you make in life. Stop worrying about everything, pray that God will give you peace.
- Perseverance – This word means steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success. We need perseverance in the Christian life. It isn’t always easy, it isn’t always smooth sailing but we just have to keep going forward. I think of Paul, where he just kept serving no matter what he went through. He had learned the characteristic of perseverance. We need more Christians, who stay strong during the hard times.
Below is a video that I put together. It covers the things that we should pray for. Let me know what you think about it!
