Jesus' Prayer List
February 19 | Taken from a message by Adrian Rogers
Sometimes people will casually ask me, “Would you put me on your prayer list?” Unfortunately, I can't pray for everybody. You say, “You're so hard-hearted.” No I'm not. You can't pray for everything either.
If you try to pray for everybody and everything, your prayer list will become a stagnant swamp, rather than a controlled river. God will lay prayer burdens upon your heart, and God will tell you who to pray for.
Now, I'll pray generally for a person, but friend, when people tell me they pray for me everyday, tears generally pop into my eyes. I think, There are almost 6 billion people on the face of this earth. And this person is taking the time to pray for me!
Don't think I don't pray for others; I'm just simply saying that if you are on somebody's prayer list, you are blessed. More important than that, you're on Jesus' prayer list. You! He knows you. Matthew 10:30 says, “the very hairs of your head are all numbered.” You are not an incident; you are not an accident. You are a planned child of God. He has adopted you into His royal kingdom and sealed you with his precious Holy Spirit for all eternity.
