Daily Prayer For The Nations
Why should we pray daily for other countries of this world?
says in Eph 6:18 and pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds
of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always
keep on praying for all the saints.
1. Many could not do this mainly because of our lack of concern for others. It is a fact.
2. Mainly people are living a very selfish life as in 2 Tim 3:2 "For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money," So, usually they will not take time for others. Even in the ‘Good Samaritan" parable, Jesus told, but for the Samaritan no one took time for the dying person. In such a busy and selfish world, It is easy for as to follow the customs of this world. But friends, we are not called to follow the ways of the world but to follow Jesus and His word.
3. here the bible says, "Be alert means we have to be very careful in fulfilling this God given Prayer Job. Only prayer moves the hands of the almighty God.
4. If we do not love others as we are loing ourselves We are not fulfilling the commandments of our God. Here, Praying for others, witnessing, preaching, discipling and Serving others all these commandments, we got them from the Lord only.
5. We have to practice loving others by taking time to pray for others. When we love some one surely we will give time for them. If we say I am very busy I cannot take time for others? Truly the love of God is not in us.
But with out knowing any thing about this world and its
different type of people we cannot do anything. Even to visit many nations
for the Lord, like Apostle Paul we must know many information about
many countries of this present world.
