A Plea for help!

Teach me to pray, O God! Teach me to pray Your heart, Your will, Your Word. Forgive me, Lord, for I am often self-focused in Your presence and give in to the worries of this life and miss the blessing of praying Your heart for your Church and the world around me.  Empower me by your Spirit to intercede for others and Your work around the world.  May I become one that You call on, even in the watches of the night, to “build up the wall” and stand in the gap on behalf of others and may I respond when You call.  May the burden and intensity of the needs of a lost world, my brothers and sisters in Christ, and my community of faith so overtake me, that I cannot keep silent day or night before You.  Make me to be a watchman for Your Kingdom.
                                                                                          From “Pray the Word” by Tiece King
