what to pray for

A friend of mine here recently shared this excellent resource. It has refreshed and encouraged me and greatly, very needfully, challenged me in my prayer life. All this is is a simple list of the requests in prayers found in the New Testament that we are invited to pray along side of... Pray that God would exalt his name in the world, that God would extend his kingdom in the world, that the Gospel would speed ahead and be honored, for the fullness of the Holy Spirit, for unity and harmony among Christ's followers, for encouragement, for healing, for wisdom....

I'm refreshed with joy as I read this over. What a tremendous gift, honor, force we have in prayer- trusting that the God of the universe hears our voices and responds to our cries. May we ask boldly, for His glory!
