Pray and Petition With Thanksgiving

Phil 4:6-8

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

How are we to pray? By praising and thanking God and making requests. Doing this insures that our prayers are heard instantly and acted upon at the precise time God has planned according to His will for us.

God already knows what we pray for, so why should we pray?

The reason is that God has given us a choice, otherwise known as “free will”. This was the same for Adam and Eve.

Deciding and following through with prayer is the way in which we are drawn close to God. Prayer to God draws us into a close and intimate relationship with Him.

Your prayers might not get answered right away or then again they might. Prayer is the ultimate time saver.

Everything and everyone needs prayer. I’m asking everyone that reads this message to remember me and my family in prayer as I remember to pray for everyone who reads Living By The Holy Spirit.

Let’s get it!
