Pray that the saints would learn to pray the intercessory prayers that both express God’s desire and carry out God’s will (Gen. 18:17; 19:27, 29; Matt. 6:9-10).
Gen. 18:17—And Jehovah said, Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do?
Gen. 19:27, 29—And Abraham rose up early in the morning and went to the place where he had stood before Jehovah…And when God destroyed the cities of the plain, God remembered Abraham and sent Lot out from the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities among which Lot dwelt.
Matt. 6:9-10—You then pray in this way: Our Father who is in the heavens, Your name be sanctified; Your kingdom come; Your will be done, as in heaven, so also on earth.
