Six things to start praying about NOW

Things to start praying about

It can be tempting to pray as you go, that is to wait for issues to surface before we pray about them but waiting till the last-minute to pray can be dangerous. There are things to start praying about now. As in Now! Now! Now!.

The time to settle stuff on our knees is NOW.  The future can be decided, changed and determined by prayers NOW. We shouldn’t wait for the future to become the present before we pray about certain issues. Delay can be dangerous.

Six things to start praying about NOW

1) Your Faith and Christian walk

Yes oh! You might be a fiery man of God now. You can speak in tongues now and demons tremble but that is now, anything can happen in the future. We have to know continually pray for our faith and our salvation so that we don’t backslide.

Things to pray about

We need to pray for power to overcome temptation, power to resist sin, and for spiritual power and growth. So many great preachers have become former preachers because they took things for granted. Pray constantly that your faith be upholded.

2) Prospective spouse and our homes.

Apart from salvation, who we get married to is one of the most important decisions we can make and it is one of the things to start praying about now.

As in, start praying about your spouse even before you get married. You can pray your way into a right marriage. You can cancel foundational patterns of bad choices and wrong marriage through prayer. You can cancel Satan’s plan for you to separate or divorce through prayer. You can pray to marry Gods’s choice for you and not your own choice. You can pray not to be led by the flesh but by the Holy Spirit. You can pray not to marry a wife or husband beater. You can pray for a kingdom marriage. You can pray for a spouse with the kind of qualities you desire.

Things to start praying about

You can pray to be the the right spouse. You can pray for God to take away the behavior in you that can affect your marriage.

And when we finally marry and for the married ones, the Home still needs constant prayer. The devil hates Christian homes and you  can be sure that he is always devising ways to take peace and joy away from the marriage. We should not be ignorant of the wiles of the Devil. Pray, pray, and pray some more about your home.

3) Heaven.

Heaven is one of the things to start praying about now even though we don’t want to die now ?. Heaven is not automatic. Satan is bent on ensuring that Christians miss heaven and go to hell instead. We should therefore not take heaven for granted, nor underestimate the desperation of Satan to make sure we miss heaven.

Pray about heaven, for grace to make heaven, grace to walk the Christian walk and for power over sin. You can pray for the Holy Spirit to teach or show you more about Heaven.

4) In- Laws

Last week’s post was basically about what to do when in-laws dislike or hate you and E suggested that we start praying about our future in-laws now and I agree with her (in fact it gave me the idea for this post). There are some men and women that God will remove from your future as spouses because you have already prayed their family out of your future and God doesn’t want them to be your in-laws. I have a few friends with awesome mother in-laws who love them and that should be the standard. It is not too early to pray about your future in laws oh.

5) Children.

Whether we have kids or not, I believe that children are part of the things to start praying about now.

Things to start praying about

Pray for godly children, pray for their future spouses  and friends, pray about their Christian walk, pray for god fearing children, pray for them to be soldiers for Christ and respectful children.

List out the kind of children you want, and the kind of future you want for them. Pray concerning their health, their wealth, their life, even the kind of friends you want.

6) Yourself.

Of course you have to pray for yourself. Pray for long life, good health, pray for grace to make good decisions, pray for financial success, for wisdom of the Holy Spirit . Pray against attacks from the kingdom of darkness before they even manifest and pray same for your present of future spouse, present or future children and for friends and family. A great protection weapon is the Blood of Jesus. Be sure to pray and cover yourself and loved ones with it.

Now, over to you for more ideas on things to start praying about NOW because this list isn’t exhaustive. What other stuff can we start praying about now?

    I totally agree about all you stated up there, especially your spouse, because if the devil did not get u through your parents, friends, his next target is your spouse, your spouse could help or break you spiritually,physically e.t.c. I think if your spouse is settled, in-law should partially be settled too. And you and your spouse should work and pray about heaven.

    Our spiritual life is really something worth praying about now, have been struggling spiritually since the beginning of this year, and it wasn’t like this last year, even tho I still pray about my spiritual growth tho.

      Yeah. Praying for spouse is like praying for yourself because when trouble comes both parties share in it.
      That’s true, spouse and in laws are kinda related. However I still love specific prayers. It’s better to ask God for both the kind of spouse and the kind of in-laws you want.
      I agree with you about the spiritual life. It’s so easy to go from 100 to 10 if one isn’t careful.
      Spiritual struggle stems from different issues. Keep praying a out it so you can pinpoint what’s wrong exactly.

    🙂 Bisi, as I read the headline, I was thinking to myself “I’m sure this has something to do with my comment from last week” and then I saw where you wrote that heheh. I’m feeling very special now oo lol! On a more serious note, I agree with all you wrote and this in particular stood out to me “The future can be decided, changed and determined by prayers NOW”. Praying about about our spiritual lives has many benefits, one of which is that it helps you get even closer to God, but unfortunately, it’s one of those things a lot of people do not really think about because we are so caught up in praying about the things affecting us in the physical, so I am glad you brought that up. And Amen to praying for the future children we do not have yet because with all the things that are happening in this world now, the earlier we start praying over our children, the more peace we will feel in our hearts. Other things I like praying for are career advancement in the right direction and a purposeful life because I strongly believe God gave each of us a purpose here on earth but we need to pray to make sure our paths align with God’s path for us.

      Lol. Yes it had something to do with it. I thought of telling you to write the post but you may not read the mail on time so I decided to write.
      Doesn’t mean you are off the hook though.?
      Lol. Feel as special as possible .
      Word! Praying for Spiritual life is so important. The stuff we spend so much time praying on are determined by the outcome of our spiritual life so it should even come first.
      I agree too. Especially About the purposeful life. I am passionate about purposeful living.
