God Wants and Expects Your Prayers, so for Whom Do You Pray?

July 21, 2018

MESSAGE SUMMARY: We can come before God on behalf ourselves and others -- intercessory prayer. You and I are given the privilege of following Moses example when he prayed to God on behalf of his people in  Psalms 102:1-2: “Hear my prayer, O LORD; let my cry come to you! Do not hide your face from me in the day of my distress! Incline your ear to me; answer me speedily in the day when I call!". Because of what Jesus has done for us, we can exercise this privilege of praying directly to God, the Creator of the Universe. The question is not: "Can we come before God with our prayers?";but "Will you come before God with our prayers, and for whom will you pray?”.

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONI affirm that because of what God has done for me in His Son, JesusI will trust in the Lord with all my heartI will trust in with all of my heart and lean not on my own understanding.  In all my ways I will seek to know Him, and He will make my pathways straight.  (From Proverbs 3:5f).
