Prayer Project Week Six

THE PRAYER OF INTERCESSION AND PETITION

 Prayer of Intercession brings before God the needs of others and Prayer of Petition is the offering of our own needs to God, that God’s will may done.  This is a very familiar form of prayer. We are often asking of God to tend to us and care for our wants and needs.   Important in this prayer form is the exercise of our faith that God knows us and is always providing for us all that is best for us.

There is a song that is quite contemporary that has the lyrics, ”you can’t always get what you want… but you get what you need.”

It is a good thing to ask God for what you want and need.  It is a great thing to trust that God always provides the best response and remedy to our every request.
