We are called to bear one another’s burdens but we must remember that in many cases we can’t change anything, but we know the One who can. Seeking God’s will is important. In our own flesh we may try to fix things for others but, we only make them worse because God may be trying to speak to the other person through their problem.
The same can be true in our prayers. Sometimes what we assume we should pray for isn’t always what God wants us to pray. At times with our natural eye we might pray for one thing, such as deliverance when we should be praying for strength or endurance.
We need the Holy Spirit to guide us so that we can align our prayers up to God’s will. Praying according to the will of God includes asking for wisdom (to know the will of God) and asking in faith (to trust the will of God).
Matthew 6:10 NKJV
“…Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.”
Prayer is not about getting God to do what we want Him to … it is releasing God’s will on earth as it is in heaven.
Thank-you for allowing us to be part of Your plan. By the power of the Holy Spirit, help us to bear one another’s burdens according to Your perfect will. We ask that Your will be done and not what we think -may all our prayers align up to Your will. Fill us with the wisdom to know Your will and with trust to accept Your will.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
