Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
δέησις déēsis, deh'-ay-sis; from G1189; a petition:—prayer, request, supplication.
STRONGS NT 1162: δέησις
δέησις, -εως, , (δέομαι);
1. need, indigence (Psalm 21:25 (Ps. 22:25)); Aeschines dial. 2, 39f; [Plato, Eryx. 405 e. bis]; Aristotle, rhet. 2, 7 [ii., p. 1385a, 27]).
2. a seeking, asking, entreating, entreaty (from Plato down); in the N. T. requests addressed by men to God (German Bittgebet, supplication); universally: James 5:16; 1 Peter 3:12; as often in the Sept., joined with προσευχή (i. e. any pious address to God [see below]): Acts 1:14 Rec.; Ephesians 6:18; Philippians 4:6; plural 2 Timothy 1:3; joined with προσευχαί, 1 Timothy 5:5; with νηστεῖαι, Luke 2:37; ποιεῖσθαι δέησιν, Philippians 1:4; π. δεήσεις, Luke 5:33; 1 Timothy 2:1. contextually, of prayers imploring God's aid in some particular matter: Luke 1:13; Philippians 1:19; plural Hebrews 5:7; supplication for others: [2 Corinthians 1:11]; περί τινος, Ephesians 6:18; ὑπέρ τινος, 2 Corinthians 9:14; Philippians 1:4; with the addition πρὸς τὸν θεόν, Romans 10:1.
[Synonyms: δέησις, προσευχή, ἔντευξις: πρ., as Professor Grimm remarks, is unrestricted as respects its contents, while δ. is petitionary; moreover πρ. is a word of sacred character, being limited to prayer to God, whereas δ. may also be used of a request addressed to man. In Byzantine Greek it is used of a written supplication (like our petition); cf. Sophocles Lexicon under the word. See more at length Trench § 51; also Bp. Lightfoot on Philippians 4:6; Ellicott on Ephesians 6:18; cf. Schmidt chapter 7. In 1 Timothy 2:1 to these two words is added ἔντευξις, which expresses confiding access to God; thus, in combination, δέησις gives prominence to the expression of personal need, προσευχή to the element of devotion, ἔντευξις to that of child-like confidence, by representing prayer as the heart's converse with God. See Huther's extended note at the passage; Ellicott at the passage; Trench as above.]
