AMAZING POWER IN TRYING PRAYER POWER: Ten Rules for Getting Effective Results from Prayer

1. Set aside a few minutes every day. Do not say anything. Simply practice thinking about God. This will make your mind spiritually receptive.
2. Then pray orally, using simple, natural words. Tell God anything that is on your mind. Do not think you must use stereotyped pious phrases. Talk to God in your own language. He understands it.
3. Pray as you go about the business of the day, on the subway or bus or at your desk. Utilize minute prayers by closing your eyes to shut out the world and concentrating briefly on God's presence. The more you do this every day, the nearer you will feel God's presence.
4. Do not always ask when you pray, but instead affirm that God's blessings are being given, and spend most of your prayers giving thanks.
5. Pray with the belief that sincere prayers can reach out and surround your loved ones with God's love and protection.
6. Never use a negative thought in prayer. Only positive thoughts get results.
7. Always express willingness to accept God's will. Ask for what you want, but be willing to take what God gives you. It may be better (pero para sakin BEST un) than what you ask for.
8. Practice the attitude of putting everything in God's hands. Ask for the ability to do your best and to leave the results confidently to God.
9. Pray for people you do not like or who have mistreated you. Resentment is blockade number one of spiritual power.
10. Make a list of people for whom to pray. The more you pray for other people, especially those not connected with you, the more prayer results will come back to you.

    Second, God is at work answering everyone’s prayer. The Bible says in Isaiah 65, verse 24, "It will also come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear." God wants to hear your prayers. He is eager to hear our thoughts and request. He has a desire to have a relationship with His children. The Bible says in James 1, verse 17 that, “Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, or shifting shadow.” God loves us enough to hear our prayers and to help us when we need Him most. The apostle Paul reminds us in…

    Prayer is being in the presence of God. It is being in the position where the ego is put aside, hope is elevated and requests are made. One admits his needs, accepts humility, and asks God for help. Prayer is having the opportunity to be in touch with God being able to confess sins and touching the heart of God via his son, Jesus Christ our savior (Christian Apologetics & Research Ministry, 2011). When one prays, prayer is love, devotion, and a walk that allows one to participate daily to keep their thoughts positive (McMinn, 1996). Prayer is like a foundation, one need to pray for strength, understanding, help, peace, love, guidance and gratitude. When one prays, he is conversing with God, walking closer to him, talking and listening to him. One who believes can pray from his or her heart on anything that they want to talk to God about. Another reason to pray is because God told us to pray. Being obedient is a result of discipleship. In Luke 18:1 it states “then he spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart” (New King James Version). Ephesians 6:18 states “pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of…

    The first direction is peace of mind. Baldwin says that this is the “cornerstone of spiritual life”. For us to hear the spiritual messages being sent all the time we must have a clean slate to listen. It’s the state of being receptive. Usually our minds are filled with the chaos of the day, and the many voices our minds listen to such as critic, judge, victim, doubter, and encourager. We need to be able to quiet these voices and let go and be in each moment. How we get to there can look different for everyone. Some might go for a run, a quiet walk in the woods, devotional readings, or mediation. One suggestion is deep breathing. Slow, deep conscious breathing as you focus on letting go and being in the moment. This will help prepare you for the day and be open to listening to the Divine messages.…

    Prayer can be thought of as a form of worship. Some people may find a prayer peaceful or sentimental while others feel it's not useful in their spiritual life. These types of people often perceive prayer done in one way with very strict boundaries. Before taking the Prayer and Spirituality class at Mercy, this was me. I often found myself bored during morning prayer and even day dreaming during mass. Through the concepts and topics of this course I have learned that there are many different ways to pray. This class has broadened my horizons and open doors to a whole new prayerful experience.…
