This article will not only highlight why; it will also include a reason why you should submit a prayer requests and trust that these prayers requests will be granted. Praying to Christians is as necessary as breathing.
There is nothing as effective for a Christian, as prayer. God is the one who knows and sees all, even before they happen. God Himself promised us in Philippians 4 that with prayer, His people do not have to be worried about the hassles of life.
Philippians 4:6-7 says, ‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.’
If this is not a beautiful promise from God, one is left to wonder what is. ‘…by prayer and petition’ is basically talking about how important it is to submit a prayer requests, that praying is best accompanied by petitions. Your prayer requests are as important as your prayers.

With everything going on around us today – the pandemics, violence, chaos, destruction and negativity, any Christian still far from God is on the wrong path. God is not the enemy, no matter what is happening around you or to you. He did not say that temptations will not come. However, He promised to be there for His people, when they come.
1 John 5:14-15 says, ‘This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.’
This is another powerful passage from the good book. It admonishes Christians to ask with confidence. God is your father so, be afraid for nothing. Get close to Him and unlock the benefits you have as His child.
There is no difference between you and that Christian who is blessed by human standards. God loves all of His children equally and when you forge a strong relationship with Him, you will find out just how much His love goes.
Today, make a declaration in your heart to take advantage of your place as God’s own. With God, a thousand shall fall near you; ten thousand around you, but you shall not be harmed. That is God’s promise to you. There are about five hundred bible verses about prayer. Read them and see for yourselves how much you stand to benefit as a prayerful Christian.
Now that you have gotten this far, hopefully, you have decided to go back to God and rekindle your relationship with Him or forge one with Him if you have not. While at it, why not stand in agreement with other Christians by putting your petitions out here? If you believe in the power of intercession, please, submit a prayer requests.
Remember that God said that you should ask and you will receive. Thus, have faith that the prayer requests you submit will be answered by God, and speedily too.
