How Should I Pray? (Vol. 19)

by Riley Nelson

Price: $ .99

Excerpt from the Tract:

Prayers should be uttered in a spirit of selflessness. While approaching God for personal things is not wrong, there are always others who are in need. Paul in talking about prayer wrote, “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (1 Timothy 2:1-2). It is the Christian way to be concerned with more than just personal things but also on the things of others (Philippians 2:4). In a congregation of people there are always those for whom prayers should be uttered. The elderly need the prayers of others as they face not only health problems but also loneliness. The youth need prayers as they face temptations and emotional upheavals and as they struggle with becoming adults. Elders, deacons, preachers, teachers, and members in general all should be included in prayer as they labor in the work of the Lord. Prayers for public officials should be offered, no matter what a person’s politics. It does not matter which party is in office, Christians serve God not man.
