In reading “Praying with Smith Wigglesworth Faith-filled prayers for Fervent prayer warriors by Larry Keefauver” I ran across a prayer entitled “Praying Through.”
It raised questions in my mind as to how I’ve been praying.
Here is the paragraph I need help understanding.
“Teach me, O God,
Instead of praying about, to pray through the problem,
Instead of praying for, to pray in the Spirit,
Instead of praying to, to pray with Thee.”
Questions I have is, am I praying with God and what does that
“Nowe let us kneele downe in the presence of our good GOD with acknowledgements of our faultes, praying him to make us feele them better than we have done, so as our whole seeking may bee to submit our selves unto him, and hee may vouchsafe to reach us his hand, not suffering us to bee any more given to our own fancies and affections, but that wee may magnify his goodness which he uses towardes us, and fare the better by it by yielding him the obedience that hee deserveth: specially because hee hath vouchsafed to bring us his lawe and declare it to us, and hath not only showed us the way how to live well, but also vouchsafed to adopt us to bee his children, and to shewe himselfe to be our father and Saviour for our Lorde Jesus Christes sake. That it may please him graint this grace not only to us, but also to all people.”

Has this antidote helped you to have a restful peaceful night giving way to a beautiful day?

“Lord, I lift my adult children up to You and ask that You would put a hedge of protection around them. Protect their spirits, bodies, minds, and emotions from any kind of evil or harm. I pray specifically for protection from accidents, disease, injury, or any other abuse. Keep them safe from any hidden dangers and let no weapon formed against them prosper. Thank You, Lord, for Your many promises of protection. Keep them safe in all they do and wherever they go.”
