Prayer: I’ve been thinking a lot lately about where my life is going, what my purpose is in life, where I want to be 2 years from now, 5 years from now, 10 years from now… and it made me realize that I really need to pray more…
I was listening to a speaker and he talked about how meditation is a form of prayer, and it made me think of what other forms of prayer are there?
1 Timothy 2:1
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men;
Supplications: Making a request to God. When you pray this kind of prayer, you must believe when you pray that you have received. This should probably take 5% of your prayer time.
Prayers: General prayers, personal conversation with God about your thoughts, your feelings, your concerns. This should probably be another 5% of your time.
Intercession: Praying for others. Whatever your concern for them you pray and give it to God. This should probably be about 5% of your time.
Thanksgiving: Thanking God for everything. For being a good God, for his lovingkindness, for his faithfulness. This should take 85% of your prayer time because it builds up your faith, and it helps us to realize that God can do exceedingly above all that concerns us, but only if we believe and are willing to do whatever he asks us to do to get us there.
I’ve got a new prayer partner and I’m excited!
How about you? how is your prayer life going? Do you have a prayer partner? Where would you like to be 2 years from now? 5 years? 10 years?
