What No One Knows About Religion
The scriptures have instructed us to supplicate and pray about everything happening to our lives and those of people around us. You will be frustrated in a situation where you want to pray but you do not know where to start. The typical “please bless so-and-so” and “help them with such-and-such a thing” prayer is stuck in your mind such that you might be willing to pray for others but you do not know how to move beyond this kind of prayer. This is what may make you to give up on praying for yourself and others simply because you do not know how to go about it.
You might be willing to pray for the needs and obvious troubles of people, for instance, those undergoing persecution in a certain country but you get discouraged at the realization that you do not know how to intercede for them. This should not, however, discourage you instead you should believe in God that He wants you to move past your lack and enter boldly into a prayer closet hence you should ask Him to teach you how to pray.
You will be taught how to pray by the scriptures. The word Of God will impact positively into your life hence it is important for you to read bible verses regularly. The teachings, inspiration, and instructions from the bible will help you a great deal in improving your prayer life. You will want to pray for the same things as prayed for in the Pauline epistles for yourself and others because when you read the epistles your spirit will be stirred.
It will be unbelievable how the Holy Spirit will fall powerfully every time you pray from the scriptures. There will be powerful falling of the Holy Spirit when you pray from the scriptures because the bible was inspired by the Holy Spirit hence the words written there are His own. Thus every time you pray, you pray in the Spirit. Therefore the more hard work you put in praying with His request, the more your spirit will be directed to intercede in greater measures. You will be inspired by the Spirit to pray for specific but unknown things for you and others.
The powerful prayers outlined in this article will get you started. You should pray that God gives you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. Another powerful prayer is praying for enlightenment of the understanding of your eyes so that you know the hope of the calling of God and His riches of glory for the inheritance of saints. The strengthening of your inner-man by the Spirit Of God and Him dwelling in your heart by faith is another prayer to make.
