50 States of Pray. My Take…. A Prayer From India

My friend, Mark Koopmans, has come up with this wonderful idea of a blog hop.  50 States of Pray, where on Christmas Eve hopefully people from each of the states will share our prayers, hopes, dreams, disappointments and whatever else for 2013 and onto 2014, all in about 100 words. Now, that’s indeed a great challenge!

Mark Koopman’s new blog hop “50 State of Pray” is an encouraging and a timely one.  PRAYER is an essential part of a Christian believer. Yes, its a vital one in a believer’s life.  I just joined in the bloghop, and here is my post for the day.
PRAYER THE NEED OF THE HOUR.
Though I am from the other side of the nation (US), Mark allowed it to the other nation bloggers too! Lo! I am here with my take.   I am from India.(IND)
As the Apostle Paul said in Philippians Let me repeat it: “Don’t 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….   Also Paul says in 1 Thessalonians:  “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing.”
Yes, it’s not a one-time affair, instead it should be a continuous process in a Christian believer’s  life.
But sad to say we all quite often pray for our selfish interests, but actually it should be the other way round.  We need to pray for the needs and welfare of others.  Especially if you are a real follower of Christ, you need to pray for the salvation of the unsaved ones.  This is what the Bible says too.

 

Though I do remember these in my personal prayers here in this post I want to emphasize the same thing:
Here is my take:
Lord, I give all glory and honor to You for giving us yet another year to live.
I pray for my nation as well other nations and its leaders for a smooth administration.
I pray for the poor and needy especially the one who are yet to know the Lord as their Savior.
I pray for the peace among the nations, especially for the peace of Jerusalem.
And Lord I pray for all the people who come across in my life especially in online and also my offline fellow brethren.  God Bless Them All. Thank you, Lord. Amen.

 

WISH YOU ALL A BLESSED DAY!!!
