PM#0069 Scripture Prayers I John 5 vs 14

Scripture Prayers
I John 5:14

Do you ever need a guide in helping you pray?  There is much help in the Bible concerning how people pray.  A good source of examples is found in the Apostle Paul’s letters to the churches.

The Apostle Paul included many of the prayers in his letters and these prayers show Paul"s hopes and godly desires for his fellow believers.  They are a wonderful resource for us in praying for others.  These recorded prayers are scripture. Scripture is God"s will revealed to us.  I John 5:14  says "if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us".

Don’t be afraid to let scripture guide you when you pray.  Go ahead and search the Bible and use many of the prayers that are found in it.  They are examples to help us pray.

Father, encourage us to use your word in our prayers for others.  In Jesus Name. Amen.
