“Whatever God brings to my mind—that’s what I pray for.”
“I pray down my list every day.”
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: No matter how you organize prayer requests, I think we need to make sure to pray for three categories of things.
First, pray for the advancement of Christ’s kingdom in the world.
“Lord, hallowed be Your Name. Your name is holy. May Your name be worshiped and honored by Your people everywhere.”
Nancy: We also need to pray for other people.
“Lord, would You give wisdom to the President?”
“Please give the pastor courage to do Your will and do it in Your strength.”
Nancy: Then we need to be praying for ourselves.
“Please guard my motives and my attitudes.”
“Help me to love you with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength.”
“Lead me with humility.”
Nancy: If your praying is sporadic or seems unbalanced, why don’t you try this pattern? Pray for His kingdom, others, and then yourself.
