• ”As we grow spiritually, God begins to wean us from things that we think we can’t live without: things, comfort, the longing for life to ‘work.’ That’s a childish instinct, to say, ‘Life has to work the way I want it to work, and now’.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Three Categories by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/01/11

“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.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

[Meditate on These Things] Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. — Philippians 4:8 (NKJV)
