There are many people that pray around the world, but will their prayers be answered? Many Christians have been indoctrinated by the church to pray without a proper understanding of what prayer comprises or how to pray correctly. In this essay, I'll go through some of the common mistakes individuals make when praying and how to avoid them.
What exactly is prayer?
The act of lifting our hearts and minds to God is known as prayer. The only way for humanity to communicate with divine is through this method. We serve a God of principles, and you must follow them if you want your prayers to be answered. Because of the manner we pray and the things we do when praying, the majority of our petitions go unanswered.
There are laws that govern the spiritual realm, and breaking these laws will result in you not receiving answers. Some of the things you should quit doing if you want your prayers to be answered are:
1. Lack of gratitude
What do you think it's like when you give someone a favor and he returns for another with no respect for the first? This is what a lot of people do when they wish to talk to God. It's not a good idea to start and end your prayer session with complaints. Always attempt to be appreciative for what God has done for you so that he will want to do more. Even if you believe God has done nothing for you, you should always be grateful for the gift of life. If you want to get answers to your prayers, begin each prayer session with praise and thanksgiving.
2. A lack of faith
The only limit to what God can do is what you allow Him to do in your heart. God is all-powerful and capable of anything, but this only works if you believe it in your heart. One of the most important elements to receiving all that God has promised you is faith. If you sincerely want to get answers, remove all uncertainty from your heart when praying.
3. Diverse entertainment
How can you expect God to respond to your prayers if they haven't moved you? You must be serious if you truly want to receive answers to your prayers. When praying, keep your mind motionless because this is the only way to hear from God.
4. Hypocrisy in prayer
Many Christians pray loudly so that others would notice them and praise them, but I can assure you that such prayer will not be answered. Since you have earned your recompense from people, a prayer that is not heartfelt will not be able to move heaven. No third party should be involved when you are praying since it is a personal connection between you and God.
