God Doesn’t Disqualify Requests
The great thing about God is that He doesn’t qualify which requests are important and more urgent and which are not. He pays attention to each and every one and encourages us to do the same for others as well. He wants us to pray not just regarding our own needs but also the needs of others. As James puts it:
13 Is anyone among you in trouble? Then that person should pray. Is anyone among you happy? Then that person should sing songs of praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Then that person should send for the elders of the church to pray over them. They should ask the elders to anoint them with olive oil in the name of the Lord. 15 The prayer offered by those who have faith will make the sick person well. The Lord will heal them. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. 16 So confess your sins to one another. Pray for one another so that you might be healed. The prayer of a godly person is powerful. Things happen because of it. 17 Elijah was a human being, just as we are. He prayed hard that it wouldn’t rain. And it didn’t rain on the land for three and a half years. 18 Then he prayed again. That time it rained. And the earth produced its crops. (James 5:13-18)
How amazing God is. Whether we’re in trouble at work, at our home, if there is sickness, if there is sin, we can lift it all up to Him. As such, we shouldn’t hesitate and second-guess whatever it is that we want to ask of the Lord. If it matters to us, it also matters to Him.
