A Call to Prayer

Entreaties .Transliteration: deésis . (deh'-ay-sis)
Transliteration: deésis
It means a heart-felt petition, arising out of deep personal need (sense of lack, want).
(deh'-ay-sis)
This kind of prayer requires the love of man that God has, it’s a holy spirit empowered prayer that cries out to God on behalf of men, for God’s sake.
Exodus 32:32 NASB95
“But now, if You will, forgive their sin—and if not, please blot me out from Your book which You have written!”
(deh'-ay-sis)
2. Prayers.

General prayers.
This kind of prayer is the general exchange with God, dialogue of requests.
3. Petitions. As to approach a king.

This is an intercession. It would mean to plead to the king on behalf of another.
4. Thanksgivings

This would be giving thanks to God in and for all things. It’s an attitude of prayer rather than a type.
O, if you have the hearts of Christians, let them yearn toward your poor ignorant ungodly neighbors. Alas, there is but a step betwixt them and death and hell. Many hundred diseases are waiting ready to seize on them, and if they die unregenerate, they are lost forever. Have you hearts of rock that cannot pity men in such a case as this? If you believe not the Word of God and the danger of sinners, why are you Christians yourselves? If you do believe it, why do you not bestir yourself to the helping of others? Do you not care who is damned as long as you are saved? If so, you have sufficient cause to pity yourselves, for it is a frame of spirit utterly inconsistent with grace. Dost thou live close by them...or meet them in the streets...or labor with them...or travel with them...or sit and talk with them and say nothing to them of their souls or the life to come? If their houses were on fire, thou wouldst run and help them and wilt thou not help them when their souls are almost at the fire of hell? Charles Spurgeon
