Unspoken Prayer Requests
Many times I sit in church
and silently pray for requests
that I am concerned about...
or that others may be burdened
with. Sometimes these things
that weigh on our hearts are so
hard to express that we just lift
them before the throne of God ourselves.
We don't feel able to share with others.
Today, I would like you to know
that I am praying for your unspoken
Isn't it wonderful to know that our
Heavenly Father knows these things without
our even telling Him?
But, it is also good to bring them to
Him and lay them at His feet.
If your heart is breaking over family issues,
or you are suffering from a debilitating disease
and feel that everyone is tired of hearing about it.
Maybe you are at a sad place in your marriage...or
there is not enough money to pay the mortgage...
Sharing with friends, if you are able, is good.
Sharing with Jesus is even better!
I will be lifting up prayers for those deepest
needs that often times go...
Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
