Every Student Prays

“After this manner therefore pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven…’” (Matthew 6:9-10).



When Jesus taught His disciples how to pray, He opened up with how their prayers should not merely be about the things concerning their surroundings (local) but rather that their prayers are meant to impact the world (i.e. “Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven”).

When you pray, do you have the faith that your prayers prayed in Texas toward your heavenly Father can impact and shape the lives of people in the Middle East? Do you believe that God wants to save souls in North Korea through your prayers prayed in North America? Jesus said that “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few: pray therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He would send forth laborers into His harvest” (Luke 10:2). You see that Jesus’ solution to the great need for people in the mission field was to pray. Before Jesus gave His disciples the command to “GO”, He first gave them the command to “PRAY.”

We should never think that our Father in heaven can only answer prayers that we pray locally. Rather, the Bible’s view on prayer is that it has worldwide effects! Think about it, the Bible says that Elijah was a man like us but yet “he prayed earnestly that it would not rain on THE EARTH for three years and six months” (James 5:17; 1 Kings 17:1). The prayers we pray to our Father, Who is not confined to the city or state we pray in, can affect peoples and countries where we may never see or enter. Prayer has no need of a passport. Before we go, we must first pray.
