How to pray effectively

What is Prayer? Is simply communication or conversing with God.

The following are just some of the steps to effective and answered prayer.

1.Confess your sins.

It is important to make things right with God before you make your requests or petitons to Him and Sins separate us from Him and make our prayers not answered

.Isaiah 59:2'But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear'.

2.Make peace with all men

James 5:16 'Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective'.

Mark 11:25 'And when you stand to pray, if you hold anything against another, forgive it, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your trespasses as well.'

3.Acknowledge God

We need to recognize God as the supreme one and put Him in his rightful place by seeking Him first

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.


4.Have Faith

Faith is the hope of things not seen but things hoped for,based on spiritual conviction rather than proof.

Mark 11:24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

5.Thanksgiving

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7
