Pray For What You Need

This next type of prayer I use a lot. I am often using my prayer time to ask God for what I need.

"Do not worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT)

God is not a cosmic vending machine where we place our prayers and out comes what we want. Rather God is a good Father who loves us very much. We can pray for our needs and for the needs of others. The Scriptures tell us that God delights in giving us the desires of our hearts.

There are times when we pray for what we need and it seems like God doesn't hear us. But we must have faith to know that sometimes God knows what we need more than we do. And, through prayer, we will experience God's peace.

With faith and thanksgiving, open your heart to your Father in Heaven. Pray about everything and ask God for what you need.
