Yes of course Pray All You Want….

Pray for someones health, safety, success, disaster relief and more

Yes, i understand our King Jesus Christ stated that “If you ask anything in my name, I will do it.” (John 14)

However…..yep, there it is….However…..

He also gave extremely specific instructions in Matthew 6: 

5 Also, when you pray, do not act like the hypocrites, for they like to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the main streets to be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. 

6  But when you pray, go into your private room and, after shutting your door, pray to your Father who is in secret.  Then your Father who looks on in secret will repay you. 

7 When praying, do not say the same things over and over again as the people of the nations do, for they imagine they will get a hearing for their use of many words. 8  So do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need even before you ask him. 

9  “You must pray, then, this way: “‘Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. 10  Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth. 11  Give us today our bread for this day; 12  and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13  And do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the wicked one. 14  “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; 15  whereas if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Did you get that?

 “You must pray, then, this way”

What stood out to you the most?  

Was it the… Give us our daily bread thing??

Was it the… Forgive us our debts thing??

It IS NOT all about us 

Read the prayer our King Jesus gave us again….

It is about our Father in Heaven first and foremost and His Will

Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. 10  Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place

Let YOUR WILL take place

Not our will, not our King Jesus’ will

His Father God’s Will

So……as i stated above….

Yes of course Pray All You Want….

Pray for someones health, safety, success, disaster relief and more

HOWEVER…..

It is about God’s Will Not Ours.

Unless your prayers are aligned with our Father God’s WILL

They simply will not receive priority – HE knows what is best, what HE wants & how HE wants it

Listen to what our King Jesus says about praying to His Father

And do it 

It will go well with you – (Deuteronomy 12:28)
