No Prayer is Too Small

Sharon JaynesListening to God, Prayer, Praying for Your Child 182 Comments

It was time for prayer requests from the five-year-olds in my Sunday School class. They eagerly raised their hands and expressed their greatest concerns for the day.

“Pray for my loose tooth, that it’ll come out.”

“Pray for my tooth, that it’ll come in.”

“Pray for my cat who is sick, that God will make her better.”

“Pray for my daddy. He lost his job.”

“Pray for my daddy’s friend who went to prison last week because he did bad things.”

All the requests held equal importance. The children had not learned yet (from misinformed adult) that certain requests are too trivial to take to God.

Have you ever felt that your concerns were too small to bother God with—that they seemed frivolous in comparison to what’s going on in the world? A friend has breast cancer. A parent has dementia. A neighbor’s house burned to the ground. Then there’s world hunger, climate change, and devastating natural disasters around the world. It’s easy to fall into the false trap of thinking that those are the only types of prayers worth mentioning…and the smaller ones we need to keep to ourselves.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve cringed at the thought of praying that our finicky washing machine will work today. There’s nothing the devil would like more than for us to feel guilty for asking God to help our child with a math test, selfish for asking God to stretch the paycheck, petty for bothering Him with our child’s cold, or trivial for praying for a parking spot. The enemy is the one who wants us to keep our prayers to ourselves…to consider them too small.

But God doesn’t see any prayer as petty. You are never bothering Him! He wants you to ask! Nothing in His Word quantifies the importance of certain prayers over others. What we do find is that there is no prayer too small; there is no prayer too large.

Paul wrote, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done (Philippians 4:6 nlt). Guess what everything means in the original Greek. It means everything!

So go ahead and pray like a five-year-old! Pray about everything. Pray about anything. God smiles on His children when they do.

Leave a comment with your five-year-old-self prayer request. Don’t categorize your concerns into pressing or petty, serious or frivolous, critical or trivial. Once you leave your request, pray for your sisters!!!

Father God, thank You that no prayer is too small or too big for You to hear. This is the confidence I have in approaching You: that if I ask anything according to Your will, You hear me. And if I know that You hears me—whatever I ask—I know that I have what I asked of You. In Jesus’ name, amen.

    1. I know what you’re going through. Prayers for your son. ✝️🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻✝️ my older brother and I just found out that our 70 yr old brother is addicted to opioid pain pills. We feel he needs rehab and prayers. That devil is working so hard with alcohol and drugs to destroy people lives.

      1. Dede, praying for you and your brother. I totally understand, my youngest brother 68 has been on drugs and alcohol for years. He went into rehab for about 8 months but came out and started hanging around the same people and back on it again. I still believe God is able to set him free in Jesus name.

      2. I know what you are facing. My husband too is addicted to pain killers & others. Lord God , Open our husbands eyes to the enemies wiles. Reveal the root of choices to them. Like a face in a mirror, Lord. In Jesus’ name

    2. I too struggled with alcoholism. I pray he will kick this. God, please help her son as you helped me 8 years ago. In Jesus name Amen!

      1. Yes! Over 35 years ago while taking a cake mix out of the cupboard (this is so clear in my mind) I realized I could not raise my child & keep drinking. I prayed “I can’t stop on my own, Jesus do it for me”. Haven’t touched a drop since. I was seriously tempted after my mother unexpectedly died, but no liquor in the house. Honestly, the Lord gave me a “hangover”the next morning!! The blessings kept coming: The next year I gave birth (totally unexpected pregnancy) to a beautiful daughter. We are celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary this weekend. Praise Him, Praise Him, Jesus our precious redeemer!!!

    3. Praying for your son, my dad was an alcoholic , but was sober 28 yrs when he passed away at 83, praying the same for your son, it’s a hard road but God can and will help him thru it😊🙏🙏

      1. It is such a terrible disease. praying for all who struggle.

        Please pray for me as I struggle with contentment and control. I live very close to others and just want more privacy, more of a yard, a larger home, etc. I have children who are married and starting families, but they do not live near us. I want to be closer to them, help babysit, be a part of their lives. Thank you sisters for praying!

    4. I don’t know how to leave a general comment for my prayer request, so I am commenting on your’s Mary Beth. I am praying for your son and for Rae to be freed from the desire for alcohol. Here is my request. THANK YOU FOR OFFERING TO PRAY FOR ME!
      Please pray for my relationships with family and friends.
      I have conflicts with my daughter in law and grandson and a person that used to be a best friend.
      I am praying for healing in these relationships and the rest of the family, and also for God to bring me new and better friends.
      Thank you

      1. I will pray for you and your family Andrea; I know that pain. One of our sons and his wife hate us to the core and will not allow us to see our grandchildren right now. But just know our Heavenly Father is faithful, and no matter what it looks like or what the devil thinks he is trying to do in our relationships, all things are working together for our good, and this too shall pass. Keep thanking God for his provision, blessings and wisdom and together we will make it through this. There is no weapon formed against us that shall prosper. We have more with us, than those against us and the favor or the Lord is upon us. Blessings to you and yours – Gods Got this for you and me!

        1. MRSA – your post spoke to me. My husband and I are experiencing significant discord with his son (my stepson) and also MY daughter (his stepdaughter). They are angry with us for things we don’t completely understand. Like you, grandchildren are at stake. Please pray for us as we will pray for you. God is good, even in the midst of hardship. I pray for healing of spirits, hearts and minds for all our children, and for us.

    5. Praying for your son. I understand your pain. I had not heard from my son for 3 years. He’s an addict, alcoholic and part of a gang. But God answered my prayers. He called me about a month ago and he’s in a men’s home recovering. Never give up hope. God is working behind the scenes. I used to thank God everyday that he was protecting him and working to open his eyes to bring him out of the addiction hold. It’s amazing how quickly things can turn around. He IS a God of miracles.

    6. I’m right there with you Mary. I too have a son struggling with alcohol addiction. I’ve been praying for him and I will pray for you and your son too. God is good and I believe he will deliver them from this addiction.

      1. Please pray for my Christian nephew. He has recently been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Our whole family is devastated. His name is Rick H. Thank you for your prayers for strength, hope, faith, trust and healing.

    7. I need to a certain weight today when I go to the doctor to possibly have another surgery. Please pray that I have met that goal.

    8. I’m with you. God IS with you. I want you to know that there is light in this darkness. My daughter was in this pit for 10 years. She has been well now for over 7. And we have all benefited greatly from support groups. Prayers for you & your son-and all of our loved ones facing this struggle.

    9. I will pray for your son, pray for my daughter Ashley as well, she is struggling alcoholic as well. Thanks Mary Beth. I will be praying for both of them.

    1. This is my pray at this moment Susan. I join with you in this pray and there is promise from God regarding this manner. Halleluiah, Glory to God!!! Blessings!!

    2. I am going through the same thing my sister. I touch and agree with you and your prayer request… I am believing by faith it will work in your favor. Amen

  1. Sunday I added my 11 year old Yorkie to my prayers, she got a shot 11 days ago and she had a bump on her injection site that kept getting bigger. Yesterday it had shrunken down and I praised God for her healing.
    PS I also pray for my washer Everytime I use it. It’s 16 years old

    1. I prayed for my dryer to start working again. I laid hands on it and prayed and I said “in Jesus name” and pressed the start button and it worked and has worked ever since. That was 2 years ago.

    1. Oh Dear Lord, I pray for my beautiful daughter that has gone through a nasty divorce, but stays absolutely positive about her new single life with her son!!! She can move mountains with the Lords guidance! Keep her in your loving arms!

  2. My prayer is that God will grant the time for me to attend midweek Bible Study again and be able to afford to get goldfish for company.

    Thank you.

    Philippians 4:6-7-“Do not be anxious for anything, but by prayer and supplication make your requests known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”

    1. Praying for many of the people here. I need God to clear my dairy too! I have too much on / too many demands and no time or energy to finish my masters university work that’s due soon! Thank you 🙏

      1. Alice. I am praying for you now that God gives you the strength to finish your education on time and well. And that if you have more than you can possibly get completed, that somehow the deadline on some items gets postponed. In Jesus’ name, Amen

        1. Thank you!
          🙏 have had an amazing couple of answers to prayer re some of my other commitments being changed or cancelled. 😘

  3. Father God, I humbly come to you on your throne, asking for your blessings on our finances, Lord I know you have us in the palm of your hands, and I pray that you use us to be a blessing to others. In your son’s holy name I pray. Amen

  4. Lord, please help my son get his grades up to passing in all courses. Please don’t let him fail. In Jesus’ name 🙏🏽

    1. Tameka, I have the same prayer for my son. He just finished his second semester in college and didn’t do so well the first semester. I work at the college and am disappointed that he doesn’t understand the gift that he has in being able to attend with little debt incurred.

      Father, please shine light on Tameka’s son as well as mine so that they both see the value of doing their very best in school. May they both feel ignited and passionate about their classes. Please guide their steps as they navigate their education. In your name, Jesus, Amen

  5. Please pray for me, I have been served divorce papers and because of the “Joint Tenancy* Law I am being faced with the possibility of being on the streets as if the house is sold my portion will not be sufficient to alternate dwelling. My husband has been out of the house for 16 years and I have spent my savings on the upkeep of the property, so now would have nothing to pay him 50% of the valuation he is claiming. I crave your prayers, I am almost 70 years old

    1. I am praying for you that God will protect you and provide for you. I am also praying that God will touch your husband’s heart to help him do the right thing. In Jesus’ name. Amen

    2. Oh my stars. I pray the Lord will guide you through this trying time. Father God please watch over Miss Carol. Help her not to be homeless.

    3. Sweet Carol,
      I am so sorry for your situation. When we are faithful God is faithful. He does provide. If it’s any consolation if you have been married for more than 10 years, are not remarried you can collect part of your ex husbands Social Security as well as yours. It does not affect his and he will never even know unless you tell him. Maybe that will help bridge the gap for monthly expenses. Some cities do have quality elderly lower income housing that may be an option. Prayers for you and may God give you the peace and comfort to press through this situation with grace, blessings and hope.

    4. I’m praying for God to give you wisdom in this situation Carol. I’m also praying that He would guide you to a godly lawyer that will help you fight the injustice of this. Exodus 14:14-“The Lord, Himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” And Deuteronomy 1:30 – “The LORD you God is going ahead of you. He will fight for you, just as you saw Him do in Egypt.”

      1. I pray in Jesus’ Holy Name, to take this horrible insomnia from me, and help my sleep come naturally! I try to stay positive every day, but very difficult! I would appreciate prayers

    5. Praying for you. I know what a frightening position you are in but I also know that God provides in the best way. Praying you are safe and secure as you age.

    6. Father in Jesus name, you know all about my sisters situation. Nothing is too hard for you, grant her request to be able to have a stable dwelling place. Thank you in advance for you said you would supply all our need according to your riches in glory by Christ Jesus.. Phil. 4::19

    7. I am and will continue to pray for you Carol as I face a simular situation. I have confidence that Our Lord will prevail strengthen us, provide for us, etc. for He is forever faithful. I say this from my imprisonment in my own home, unable to go out of the house… 4 yrs. in recovery from a Brain aneurysm, brain bleed, small stroke, loss of taste and full use of my left side. God is and will continue healing me emotionally and physically. Thank You Almighty God for always caring for us. In Jesus’ precious and powerful name, Amen

    8. I am so sorry for your situation. God is good. He was provide. Pray for daughter and family that they are trying to buy a house. They are working with an agent. We have to have faith.

    9. Oh Carol, calling on God to find a dwelling for you. To see you are taken care of in His love for you. Blessings your way!

    10. I am so sorry for this situation. I know the Lord has gone before you and prepared a way. I pray you will feel His presence, peace and comfort during these unsure times.

  6. Praying my son passes all of his SOL’s so he can graduate on time. Praying his heart surgery this summer goes well. Praying my unborn Godson is okay and that he continues to develop without any deficits. Praying for his mom that she will carry him to term. Praying for all people that they will come to believe in and know God and have a relationship with him.

  7. I’ve recently learned it is ok to talk yo God about everything anywhere. Just yesterday coming home from the grocery store I ask God to help my husband find a work truck. He is retiring this year from full time employment and he’s started his own LLC but picking a used truck with so many details is stressing me out. And that’s what I told God. Please Lord find him a truck and drop on his lap because he’s too stressed to pick his own. He thinks I’m crazy for bothering God but I think if God as my friend and if it’s important to me by it is to him. Thanks for the devotions.

  8. please pray for my son who morbidly obese that he takes his weight seriously I don’t know what he’s struggling with, but that he would seek God before this hard for whatever is troubling him that’s causing him to eat endlessly. And for my daughter who the gay lifestyle and the woman the Lord would take her out of that lifestyle, never attracted to a man a good Christian man I pray for my son also to meet a good Christian woman. They love each other and have children and you’ll be happy.

    1. Praying for your son’s health and daughter’s life choices. May God give them the desire to change. To be the beautiful children he created. May he ease your worry, Evelyn!

  9. thank you so much this was a blessing to receive this email this morning. i haven’t slept in two days. prayed all night. i know Gif heard my prayers and i really appreciate your prayers. If there’s anything I can do please do not hesitate to ask. God bless you real good. Have a wonderful day.

  10. Dear God, thank you for hearing my “selfish” prayers that are asked because I love and want to protect my family. Please intervene and only allow what is best to occur in our lives. In Jesus’ precious name I pray.

  11. My Loved one is Addicted to multiple things. Family broken and divorced. That the Lord will set the captive free and heal the broken. This has been a long journey its been 30 years.

  12. I’m asking for sweet sweet sleep through the night. It’s been a rough few months for me with interrupted sleep and sometimes bad dreams. I am praying scriptures, listening to scriptures when I wake up. And I know the Lord will restore my sleep again. I just need others to help me through this with prayer. Thank you.

    1. i just started drinking a tea that works better than Chamomile tea (in my opinion) it’s called Seven Blossoms from Tadin. it has Valerian which helps restful sleep – no groggy feeling in morning.
      hope it helps!!!

  13. Prayer request:
    Help in healing from serious childhood abuse. It affects every part of my life. One way that I’m struggling is in people-pleasing. I try too hard to make others happy. I base my worth on their opinions. When they ignore me, I am devastated. I know with my head that God’s opinion of me is all that matters, but my lonely, tired heart doesn’t seem to understand. Thank you for praying.

      1. Prayers Julie.
        You are amazing and strong… you have a story to tell. With Gods love and grace you will tell your story to help others. ❤️

    1. Oh Sandy,
      You are so very loved. Please don’t doubt how special you are. When you heal from this you will help others. Don’t allow the enemy to sneak in and rob you of joy and hope. The spiritual warfare is so real. See it for what it is and rebuke the enemy. Emotional trauma is hard. I TOTALLY get it. Keep pressing in, try to forgive those who hurt you, know that it was their inadequacy and not that you were bad or unworthy of love. God has big plans for you. Never doubt that. Recognize your emotions and know that there is beauty in the other side of healing…. Some days will be better than others. Take it moment by moment. You survived and you are precious….. please know how loved you are.

  14. Yesterday morning my prayer was “Lord, help me find my wallet.” I felt like it was a silly thing to ask God for with all the other things I have on my prayer list. I had spend a large part of Sunday looking for it. There was no cash in it, but I dreaded canceling/replacing my cards. So I prayed. I looked for it some more before heading to work. I came home for lunch and instead of parking in the garage like I always do, I left my car in the driveway. I came in the house to grab some lunch and I hear my husband call my name from the garage. There was my wallet lying under where my car would have been. Praise the Lord! God answered my prayer!

    1. Post
  15. Pray for Keisha & Mayah. They both had cyst surgically removed. Praise God they were non cancerous; however, their cyst grew back, now they are waiting to see what’s next. Also, I would like to open a daycare, I praying for confirmation from God.

  16. Father in Heaven
    I pray for all those at work. that none of them will be laid off.
    I pray for my team at work that they ALL remain in their jobs.
    I pray for those in leadership positions that they make the right decision.
    thank you Lord

  17. I have many huge prayers like my son and his addiction to drugs, but then I also pray that I stay safe in my (God’s) car whenever I am driving and about many other trivial things, such as parking spots, and more.

  18. Your message today is a blessing to me. It brought tears to my eyes to realize how God knew I needed to be reminded that he wants to hear my incessant prayers. I’ve been praying so much lately that I was feeling guilty about it. Bless you and all our sisters and brothers in Christ.

  19. I’m currently training for 2 part time jobs. My prayer is that when it comes time to schedule me to work, that they won’t conflict and that I’ll be able to manage both. I know God already has it worked out.

  20. Five weeks ago I did something to my knee. I’m a runner who hasn’t run in 5 weeks. Satan is telling all sorts of lies — two specific ones being that it’s silly to ask people to pray for a knee and that I’ll never run again anyway. Pray that God would replace the lies with TRUTH and that God would restore my knee to full health.

    1. Laura I pray for God to completely restore your knee and you will return to running soon. I had a knee replacement two years ago now other knee arthritis but I believe God can do impossible and He loves us so much. God bless you with healing in Jesus name I pray amen

      1. Thank you, Phyllis. The fact that you took the time to pray for me means so, so much. I pray that God will relieve your knee pain as well. He is able!

  21. Please pray for me. We lost our full term son who lived for 5 days -almost 8 years ago. Beyond devastating. For the last 5 years I have thought every day about adopting or fostering to adopt a child. There are so many children that need homes. This is not to try to replace our child who passed away. It’s because I just believe that I have more love to give, can provide a Christian home and know that there are many children that need a Christian home.
    We (my husband) and I have not taken the next step on it. Something like a new job, different problems that have arised have always put it on the back burner. And it’s still is an overwhelming longing in my heart.
    I didn’t want to continue to long like this if it’s not the Lord will. Please pray for a breakthrough in this or that the Lord shows me it’s not his will.
    I can’t keep going back and forth on this yet still have this longing to bring a child into our home. It’s heart wrenching.

    I’m so so so thankful for your prayers for this for this situation. You all are a a huge blessing.

    1. Amy I lost my first child at three days old. I grieved and longed for another child. God gave me another son three years later then a daughter 19 months later. I know He can fill your every long and give you children to love. I pray He hears and grants you the desires of your heart. God walk close to Amy fill e pty places with You love and give her children to love in Jesus name I pray amen

  22. Dear Lord, I went from long hair to short hair yesterday with a bit of a drastic red lowlife added to it. Please don’t let people look at me like I’m crazy today but let my people at least pretend they like it. Amen

    1. Rita,
      No one defines you but God. Don’t ever let the thoughts and opinion of others dictate how you feel about yourself. You are a daughter of the Lord almighty made in His image. Short red hair with lowlights and all!!!! Rock that hair!!!!!

  23. My husband lost his job after 33 years. This has devastated him and our family. Our oldest grandchild is struggling and failing college classes. I am trying to trust God in all areas of my life. Depression is weighing me down. My entire family is struggling with this. Please pray for us.

    1. Praying that God will lift your depression. My grandmother used to say ‘it will all come right in the wash…’
      Blessings 🙏

  24. Thank you Sharon for this reminder. Good does care about me and all my needs and He wants me to go to Him with ALL of them. I will memorize Hebrews 4:16……Thank you Jesus 🙏💞

  25. Thank you for the reminder to pray always for ALL things. I am having surgery tomorrow and would appreciate prayer.

  26. I pray for wisdom & strength as we continue home renovations! I tend to over think… I need peace about my color & décor choices! (This is hard for me to even share as it sounds so trivial!) I’m a work in progress!

  27. Pray for my children and grandchildren to be restored to back to Christ. That healing will come. Generations curses be broken. In Jesus Name. Amen

  28. Please pray God’s strength in losing weight. When I got cancer I was very diligent in exercising and about my food habits. Then as time as went by little by little I let it go now it is extremely hard. Every time I start something happens then I stop. I keep procrastinating. I really need to take better care of myself. I finding myself exahusted after spending time with my grandkid who are full of energy. I want to be here for them. Thank you

Improvements have been happening the last month. I know God has a way for the car and fridge to be fixed cheaply as possible. Praying for all the diabetics to find a cure!

  36. Please Dear Lord help my business grow and be profitable. I’ve struggled my whole life trying to be successful in my businesses and have never been successful.

Thank you so much for all the prayers ❤️

  39. What a much needed blessing this was to me today. My husband and I are contemplating selling our home, for the past 23 years. It is where our children grew up, and where they were each married. It is a very difficult decision for us but we are struggling to keep up with taking care of a too large home and 35 acres. Pray that God will make the correct decision clear to us. He has been so good to us and I have been the recipient of so many prayers in my life. Thank you

  40. I love your devotionals, Sharon! They r so “ to the heart of the matter”!! This one today reminded me what a blessing it is to see children saying prayers.
