How's your prayer life?
Have you ever prayed to God with just one word, “Help"?
A Christian prayer is simply:
√ Conversing with God
√ Talking to Him
√ Listening to Him
√ And being still in His presence.
We have the freedom to share our thoughts and hopes... our feelings, doubts, problems, and joys. Prayer brings life to our relationship with God.
In these bible verses God teaches us about prayer. They provide our Christian life with encouragement that our prayers are not only being heard...but on their way to being answered
13 If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered.
10 "Be still, and know that I am God.."
6But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
7"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. 9"Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
19"Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. 20For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."
22If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer."
27Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God."
24Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
40On reaching the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation."
9"So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
13And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.
7If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.
23In that day you will no longer ask me anything. I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
20Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
19And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
16Be joyful always; 17pray continually; 18give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Timothy 2:1-2
1I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— 2for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
16Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
5If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. 6But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
2You want something but don't get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God.
16Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
1 John 3:21-22
21Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God 22and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him.
1 John 5:14-15
14This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
