Prayer For Those Who Say, “Pray For Me”
Dr. Gale A. Ragan-Reid (July 28, 2014)
“And Samuel said, “Gather all Israel to Mizpeh, and I will pray you unto the LORD”(I Samuel 7:5, King James Version [The ark in Kirjath-jearim]).
“And said unto Jeremiah the prophet, Let, we beseech thee, our supplication be accepted before thee, and pray for us unto the LORD thy God, even for all this remnant; (for we are left but a few of many, as thine eyes do behold us:)” (Jeremiah 42:2, KJV [Jeremiah answers Johanan]).
“And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray” (St. Mark 14:32, KJV [Jesus prayed at Gethsemane]).
Greetings In The Holy Name Of Jesus,
Let us pray:
Heavenly Father, let thy will be done in the lives of my brothers and sisters in the LORD. It is not only for me that I pray. I pray because in the last 28 days in the month of July, my inbox on the internet received more than 20 causes to pray for and that is notwithstanding the prayers needed for those who sought you by telephone and by US mail even more so all the stories of prayers needed via the television and radio broadcast shows. I am sure the neighborhoods in the communities of America know of the cries of their neighbors, their sisters and their brothers in Christ Jesus, if they do not hear the cries for prayer in their neighborhoods in their communities then it is not because they are not crying; rather it is because they have their blinders on and they do not want to see and it is because they avoid people because they do not want to hear. Let me tell you the cries of the people.
I pray because I love the LORD and he hears your cries and he knows what you need. Yesterday, I heard a pastor, a laborer speak to sickness decreeing in the name of Jesus health and restoration and I heard a layman close out his prayer request for the blessings that you LORD God bestows in the Name of Jesus. Yet I know the people hesitate when they wait before I heard a deacon say to plead the blood of the lamb to get you LORD God to answer prayers sent. I am a child Father seeking His father and like most children they always want something from their father. It is no different when you see me praying out to you whether on bended knee, at the computer typing it out for others to read to console their hearts, while I work in the fields in my garden, while I look up to the sky at the stars and constellations, or now while I tend to the animals or fish, I seek you needing you asking for you LORD to hear my prayer.
Father, I thank you. I do not know about all the laborers that divinely work in the Name of Jesus but in the year 2014 you do not know what to think or which way to think when you read all the needs that come before you---some people might say you do not know which way to turn there are so many prayer needs pulling at you like the woman that needed healing for a blood issue that plagued her for years pulled at Jesus to get His attention to hear her prayer. Most recently, I heard do not impeach our very own President Obama, the screams about corporate America: CNBC, Fox News, LEGO, NFL, Shell, Walgreen, the screams about betrayal from those who represent the people of America: Representative Bishop and the Tea Party, the screams about the gardens of America: national parks, the screams about the animals you gave us to take care of: the animals that live in the Arctic, the Monarch butterfly and the whales, the constant screams about our environment: drilling in the Arctic, climate change, the screams about our regulating agencies: FCC, the screams about social media: links, the screams about theft: federal contractors' wages, corporate takeover of the internet, and the screams about what we eat: organic aisles, available food selections. Father, I know when Job kept complaining about his children
