Bothering God

In recent weeks we've been asked to pray for many people in a variety of situations. Through the incredible vehicle of e-mail we've been able to mobilize hundreds of friends to lift these needs before our Almighty God. God has answered prayer . . . sometimes in big ways, more often in, what seems to us, smaller ways. People are asking us, more and more, to send out prayer requests for a variety of needs. The temptation is always there to mention only the "urgent", the "pressing" needs. I'm learning that in God's economy, there aren't big and small, possible and impossible, urgent and not-so-urgent requests. Nothing is too difficult for God. Nothing too big for Him, nothing too insignificant. Have you misplaced something? Pray about it! If it concerns you, it concerns Him. "He will perfect that which concerns you". Let's become praying Christians, committing each concern to a faithful God who hears and answers prayer. You won't be "bothering" Him, He's already invited us to come "boldly" and "with confidence" (Hebrews 4:16).
