Effective Prayer posted by John Sorensen on Sep 14, 2021
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
How do you pray? Do you set aside time to spend with the Lord just in prayer? Throughout the New Testament, we see many times that Jesus would withdraw to a quiet place to pray. If prayer was that important to Jesus, we really need to take note! First, we need to learn how to pray effectively. How many times do we start our prayers with, “Lord Jesus, please…I need.. I want…”? While it is important to know that we can go to the Father boldly with our requests because of our faith in Jesus, they should not be our focus. The heart of your prayers should be to look at God. Praise Him for who He is before you ever present a request to Him. In Isaiah six, the prophet looked up and saw angels praising God saying, “Holy, Holy, Holy!” And, you know, we should follow their example? There are so many wonderful attributes of God that we can praise. To learn more about praying in faith, visit our website at share life dot today. That’s share life dot today.
