Should we prioritise our prayer requests to God? I.e. The most important thing mentioned first in our prayers then the next most important?

I found myself contemplating this early this morning after I had spent some time in prayer. Why? Because I had a sudden feeling of guilt that I had brought some people/situations to God in prayer before others. I felt guilty because I had left praying for those closest to me till last in my prayer.

Who should be prioritising our prayers? Who does determine which prayers are answered and when?

These are two if the questions I found myself considering.

The answer to both these questions is of course God. Therefore as long I pray sincerely to God in all things, my prayers will hold the same significance to Him.

I believe God answers prayer and therefore no matter what order I pray for people or situations, God determines when and how those prayers will be answered, not me!
