We are living in a day and age where many have lost their way they prefer finding their own path or way of just living. It is a rare thing to see one praying in public. Some even prefer to swear or condemn a person or situation rather quickly, before they’d offer to up a quick prayer. It’s like they’d forgotten that they can talk to God.
Some people really don’t know how to pray and they just never get around to learning either. However, it’s true that when the going gets tough, the tough get going or not at all.
Do you know how to pray? Do you know what to pray for? Want to learn? In the following paragraphs, you see why prayer is important. You are responsible for your body just as much as your soul.
By following the steps instructions you will be well on your way to having a very special and close relationship with your Father in Heaven.
I’m not going to talk about religion, but I will talk about faith.
Faith is the belief that something is real when you have not seen it. Nevertheless, you do not have to see God you know He’s real. He does exist… Perhaps He’s a she? Who knows… The Bible and most scripture dating back as far back as you want to go say He is male or a masculine Spirit if you will.
You should think of a prayer to God like He is your Father, He is “the Father of your soul or spirit so you can call Him Heavenly Father or Father God when you address Him. You can chat with Him every day, including the weekends and you don’t even need a phone.
Since God is Spirit, we need to speak with Him Spirit. What does your spirit need? This should be your frame of reference for communicating with Your Father.
Here are a few Godly traits you need to know before ho into this lesson on how to pray.
First of all, God has a name, but like most father’s, would prefer you to refer to Him by his title, Father. Also, like most dad’s, he likes to be complimented on the fine job that he did, keeping us alive and such. Secondly, you gotta be grateful. After all, He didn’t have to let you read this today. You could be elsewhere, but don’t let that stop you from being here. Lastly, he gets jealous when we someone else is credited for His work but loves us to the moon and back just because we bleed and cry. After all, we are His children… No one messes with God’s children, no way!.
Now let’s get right down to it, shall we?
Can be prayed out loud or silently.
“Thank you, Father God. You are Worthy to be Praised, for your mercy endures forever!”
Prayer to Heavenly Father:
When bad times and hard times are suddenly here, notice those that remain, and the ones that disappear, help me show the same mercy you extend me second to second.
Lord… The trials of life determine where I stand tomorrow, so please teach me to understand that I can’t give away my riches if I keep thinking about the hard time I underwent acquiring it, and to be merciful to others When they face difficult times, and to know that our challenges are not sent to destroy us, that they’re sent to promote, increase and strengthen us.
I understand that Life can be very hard sometimes, so show me how to be a little more compassionate to others so it might be all that they need to get by.
Thank you for giving the best things in life that arise out of the toughest situations. Thank you for the strength so I Will Not discard challenges, for it is in the challenge that the fruit lies. Also the courage to never let hard times break me.
Strengthen and prepare me for the adverse circumstances you are going to allow me to experience in order to gain from them. Because If Life didn’t have challenges, it wouldn’t be worth living at all.
I Say These Things In The Name Jesus Christ.
As stated previously, you really don’t have to be Christian to believe in a higher being that rules over us spiritually. The point is, everyone should believe in something. It gives us an exact measurement of our actual impending mortality.
You begin to realize that life in all its forms is precious. Also would give you a direct line to contact your creator even if your beliefs are dwindling and doubts take over, there is hope.
However, Faith is the ultimate key. If you’re trying to contact someone via a telephone line, you have to wait for them to pick up the line. Sometimes the line might be busy. Sometimes they may not pick up, nevertheless, thanks to technology, there’s always that option to leave a thorough or complete message. This lets the receiver know who is calling and the purpose of that call.
When making “that call”, you have faith that either the person that you’re calling will pick up or you will have the opportunity to leave your message.
Or simply put, you have the choice to leave your message to your Creator by prayer.
The same goes for prayer. It is your unlimited opportunity to speak with your Creator. If Faith is all you need, then, there is more than enough of that to go around. You just need to step up their prayer game.
Try it, and see what happens in your life. I can assure you that your feelings will change if you have any doubts. You will begin to realize that you truly have not been left alone and that there is no cause for fear.
So the next time you pray, try focusing on issues that ” A good parent” would more than happy be willing to supply to their loving child in need because that is what our spirits are… children of a most powerful being in existence.
If you have doubts about getting what you want, you might not deserve it. So make sure that you are sure that the thing you are praying for is worthy of and for you, a child of the Highest God.
People sometimes pray for material goods, like money, instead of asking for riches and glory, ask for peace and contentment. Why? Because the desire for money is a temporal or a human aspect. The prayers that God answers pertain to the spiritual realm. They say that anything is possible for those who trust God. However, in the temporal world, we ask God for strength to endure, because the courage is needed to face day to day trials that we all must go through in this life, and as with every parent, although they love their child, is unable to fully protect them from life, God is the ultimate parental example. He loves us, wants the best for us but cannot interfere or intervene when it comes to temporal things.
Created in His Image
Being created in His image is the blessing. Our human family has the capability to create things. That power is a Godly Nature. We can make things that help to make our lives better. It’s not talent its an inheritance.
Praying for focus and initiative are reasonable requests. God wants us to succeed in this life because this world is our training ground. Our success in this life determines our success in accomplishing or at least attempting to be successful at some part of our short lives.
When we look at the works of God we say it is perfect even though skepticism sets in and we say that some things aren’t as perfect as they should or could be. We must still be optimistic or exercise a certain amount of what some call vanity to say of our own works as perfect. It’s ok to be certain that your own creations are perfect and well done. You too should say of yourself, “This is good.” Viewing your works as good works, (even though we need work), is the level of confidence one must have and encourage in others.
What is the point?
The point is, we are imperfect beings out of sync with our spiritual selves and feel helpless as to spiritual things. So naturally, we focus more on physical things. Which won’t get prayers answered.
Remember, God does care about our state of being but is unable to assist with most requests that are physical in nature or requests that you can get for yourself, (having the ability to create for yourself).
There are a lot more ways to get your prayers answered the first thing you have to remember is to carefully consider,
1. The Importance, (Is this necessary?)
2. Is this Nurturing, (Is this what Father God something that He wants for me?)
3. Spiritual Realm, (Will this prayer increase my spirit?)
4. Your Inheritance, (It is your spirits privilege to be heard.)
To guarantee that your prayer is accepted, make sure that you close your prayer as you would your living loving parent or how you normally close your prayers when you pray.
It Works For Me!
When I pray, I ask for a clear head.
I ask that He clears my steps so that I won’t have many obstacles and make better choices regarding the upkeep of my body.
I ask that He do the same for my children, grandchildren and those who will come after me or future generations and requests of that nature.
Everything else, I can do for myself.
This is how my prayers are continuously answered.
I ask for things that God, my spiritual parent would like me to have in this life-time. Right here, right now…
You can do the same thing!
I challenge you, whatever your beliefs, whether you are a believer or not, to try this method.
