Supplication, prayer, intercession and thanks-giving be made for all men.*
The only way a Christian could speak with God is through prayer. Christ has said that whatsoever we shall ask should be in His name (John 16:23). Also, we are commanded to pray everywhere (1 Timothy 2:8). The apostles prayed everywhere and in every situation (Acts 12:5; 16:25; Romans 8:26; 1 Thessalonians 5:17). In keeping with an orderly fashion of worship, it is usually announced that we will be led in prayer by a faithful brother. Everyone does not pray their own prayer out loud. We are led in prayer by a brother who speaks his prayer publicly, and the rest of us follow him silently as we pray together. This allows us to worship reverently and orderly. It also avoids noise and confusion as there will be no shouts like: “Christ, Jesus, God, my God, heal him, praise him, my leg, come down, etc.” You can expect our public prayers to be led by men. Jesus is always ready to plead on our behalf if only we go to God with our requests.
