HOW TO PRAY?
Is There a Right Way How to Pray?
There is no one right way to pray, because when you pray, what you are doing is communicating with God, Jesus, Holy Spirit. When you talk, just talk as though you are talking to a friend sitting right next to you. Because in all reality, God is your friend and loves you more than any friend you have ever known. Some people like myself, prefer to pray quietly by myself in the morning, or with others in a group setting.
Your prayers do not have to be polished or eloquent to have God hear them. Some people lift their hands, others fold them, but what is most important is the position of your heart being sincere with God. Make sure you stop to listen to God to hear if He has an answer right away or if you need to wait on the Lord?
Learn how to pray more efficiently and powerfully? Have you ever wondered what the best way how to pray? I found that the best way how to pray is to share with God something I am thankful. Then confess a sin or sins that I committed. Then ask God to forgive me for my sin or sins. I also pray for all the victims that I hear about on the news, and also for others in my personal life who are struggling with health issues, relationship issues, stress, depression, etc. When I do this right, I pray for things for myself at the end. ~ Bill Greguska
Prayer is simply a two-way conversation with God, although Christians do pray for one another in group settings. It is the most intimate relationship with the Creator of the world that you can have. In prayer, your spirit and the Spirit of God are in connection with one another. Out of this can come instruction, guidance, and suggestions for new areas to focus on in your prayers.
Is there a set formula how to pray the way God wants?
God wants us to share our concerns, fears, and the desires of our heart. We need to talk to God as though you would talk to a very close friend because that is what He wants to be to you and me.
The Bible mentions a lot about prayer, including Jesus’ words on how to pray which we refer to as “The Lord’s Prayer” from Matthew 6:9-13. There is a parable that Jesus shared with his disciples, speaks directly to this topic of prayer.
