TOPIC: WHAT IS YOUR PETITION?

Read: 1 Samuel 1:11-27
MEMORISE: We will rejoice in your salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners! May the LORD fulfill all your petitions (Psalm 20:5).

EXPOSITION
The topic for the Living Water dose for today is the question one particular king asked one of his subjects in the Bible. At the banquet of wine the king said to Esther, "What is your petition? It shall be granted you…’’ (Est. 5:6). Being a king who had everything at his disposal in his jurisdiction, he was asking Esther to place her petition before him. The king was speaking with royal influence that if she could only ask, it would be given to her. We are serving the King of all kings, who created the heavens and the earth. He owns everything. With Him all things are possible (Matt. 19:26). He is all-powerful, all-knowing God and very present help in trouble (Psa. 46:1; 139:1-15). Nothing is too hard for Him (Gen. 18:14). He has everything at His disposal in heaven and exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or even think (Eph. 3:20).

The same question is coming out to you now from your King: what is your petition? From the biblical point of view, petition means an earnest request. It is a request made for something desired, especially a respectful or humble request as to a superior or somebody in authority. In a legal term, petition means an official document asking a court to take a particular course of action. Any request made of God, Is thus a petition. Any time you come before God with your specific request, you are writing a petition to the supreme court of heaven (cf. 2 Sam. 15:31; 2 Chro. 20:1-17).

Added to other forms of prayer, including thanksgiving, confession, and intercession, is petition, which means to specifically request or ask for something in particular from God (Phi. 4:6). The prayer of Hannah is an example of petition as she ask God for a boy (1 Sam 1:11). In verse 17, Eli, the high priest, responded, Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him.

What are your own petitions? God expects you to humbly ask Him in your prayers (Matt. 7:7; Jn. 14:14, 16-24).

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, give me grace to put my trust in You in my daily prayers.
2. Father, I ask for power of prevailing prayers, in the name of Jesus.
3. Pray for all the Christians homes to learn the way of daily prayer to make their needs known to God
