What should we pray about? Who should we pray for?
In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus provided us with a basic template of how to pray and what to pray for (Matthew 6:9-13).
He explained that we should ask our Father for His Kingdom to come and for His will to be done—which includes praying for the work of His Church to be done. We are also told to ask for our daily needs, for forgiveness and for deliverance from “the evil one” (Satan).
He also told us to pray for those who spitefully use us and persecute us (Matthew 5:44).
In his epistle, James wrote that we should pray for one another (James 5:16). Paul expanded that to include praying for all people: “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence” (1 Timothy 2:1-2).
In other words, prayer is an opportunity for us to take all of our concerns and worries to the throne of God and request His assistance. It’s a time to give God thanks for our blessings and for His goodness, to repent of our sins while refocusing ourselves on His plan, His power and His coming Kingdom. It’s also a time to request God’s aid and intervention in the lives of those who need it—even our enemies.
