It is very important that the Believer first goes to God before approaching man. If not the effect then, is that the light within him does not shine at the strength at which it was supposed to. This helps the world continue to hold on to the lost and the church is not strong enough to come up against the evil one. When we approach God from a wrong perspective we then ask for the wrong things. Instead of bread we ask for stone.
‘In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will’ Ephesians 1.11
When we pray for the world we must hear God first. What God desires and how He desires to bring something about will show in our praying. If not our prayers will not reach Heaven. For why should it if it does not have the wishes of God in the first place. The Believer must make sure that he is aware of that which enters into Heaven. God is certainly aware of it. Only that which God desires is allowed to enter into the Presence of God. The Will of God is the shape for all our praying. We must remember though, that we are not called to make the world a better place. The world is already damned. Our duty as the church is to Pray that those who are lost will be found and brought into the kingdom of God.
‘As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you’. John 15.19
