Do we understand how to pray? The Filling Station

As a Believer, for over 35 years, I have listened to many public prayers.  We pray for health,  finance, marriage, jobs, peace.  All wonderful things to pray about. 

As we look at the prayers of Paul, we see something totally different.

” First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, “
“without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;”

” That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;  So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:”

” Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.  Let all your things be done with charity.”

” Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. ”

” I Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;  That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:  The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,”

”  Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”

And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;”

” That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;”

” Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ,   That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.”

 “Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.”

” Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;”

” Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.”
