  We often think prayer depends on us, but that’s not true. Prayer doesn't hinge on our performance. The effectiveness of our prayers depends on Jesus Christ and our Heavenly , when you think about how to pray, remember, prayer is part of our relationship with God. Mormons believe that if you read the Book of Mormon and then pray and ask God whether or not it is true, you will receive a testimony from the Holy Spirit verifying its truth.

Learning the Lord’s Prayer, by Jessie Schut, is accompanied by a Leader/Mentor Guide and is geared toward helping children understand and participate in the Lord’s. You’ve been in those prayer sessions, where someone just launches in and starts praying out of her emotional response to the situation; it is often beautiful and well-intentioned, but it is also typically ineffective.

Peter is still in jail. There isn’t a cloud on the horizon. Now yes, yes — of course we pray moved by love and concern. Jesus encourages us to cry out to God day and night (Luke ), to pray with humility (Luke –14), and to ask for things that glorify God so that we can experience His joy (John ).

The psalmist said, “Pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge” (Psalm ). In addition, the “Lord’s Prayer” is all plural, making it a command that we should pray for others: “Our Father,” “Give us this day our daily bread,” “forgive us our debts,” “lead us not into temptation,” and so on.

Clearly, the Bible condones requesting prayers from others. Thus begins a new story by Faith Pray, an artist and author who made her own wish seven years ago. “The Starkeeper,” Pray’s debut children’s book, has been published by Random House to glowing reviews and applause from her own four kids, who include twin teenagers, a young son and a daughter who sparked the whole idea.

I have now been attending a Presbyterian (PCA) church for three years, where “pre-made” prayers are a weekly part of Sunday service, and I like to think that I’ve come full circle when it.

If you’re wondering about how to pray an effective prayer, you’re not alone—even a disciple of Jesus asked Him for instructions about how to pray: “Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of His disciples said to Him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples’” (Luke ).

That kind of prayer could unleash a phenomenal amount of grace on our normal, everyday lives. So I challenge you (and myself), in the next few days, to ask someone for prayer. When something is bothering us – we’re struggling or we just can’t seem to get something off our mind – let’s reach out.

If you are someone who prays and feels moved to pray for this person, then say you will. Such as, “I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.” Then really do pray for them. Don’t say you will if you have no intention of doing so. If you don’t pray. We’re going to talk about how to pray right now.

One of the very basic things about the Christian life is praying. You know, we said that reading the Bible is like eating. Well, praying is like breat. Jesus’ disciples repeatedly asked for His help, and so should we. On one occasion they said, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke ).

Yes, God hears our prayers on all occasions, whether we’re praying out loud or praying silently in our hearts and minds. Have you ever been tempted and then found yourself saying, “I’ll go ahead and sin and then ask for grace later”.

What we need is for God to create a fresh work in our hearts so that we don’t want anything to do with sin. Like David, we need to pray, “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” (v.

10). When asking for prayer, realize that you do not have to share every sacred detail. Simply say you need healing, encouragement, and so on.

Allowing others to pray for us, as we pray for others is God’s will. The intimacy of prayer strengthens the body of Christ because it builds close relationships. “Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy will be the fullest possible joy” (John NCV).

Do you know why God wants you to learn to ask for things in prayer. So he can give them, and so you’ll be full of joy. God is a loving Father. In addition, R. Yonasan translated the books of the Prophets into Aramaic (Talmud Megillah 3a).
