Some Things to Pray for

Sometimes, people need help when it comes to what to pray for, or how to make a prayer request. Some of us never knew how to pray, and we had to learn by listening to others pray, and by reading the Bible to learn how to pray, and by being around people who pray a lot.

Jesus taught us to pray, to ask God for the things that we need in this life. In the Lords Prayer, He taught us to pray for the food that we need, to pray for forgiveness, to pray to forgive other people. He taught the multitudes to pray for their daily needs.

God doesn’t want us to just pray about “spiritual” things, but to pray for the things that we need, to pray for the needs of other people, to pray for the circumstances that we need, literally, to pray for all the things that pertain to this life.
