Establishing an Effective Prayer Life

When we communicate with God, He is pleased. Today we will continue our study on Effective Prayer Life, step three. We’ve finished step one Prepare your Heart, and step two Set a Time To Pray.

3. Plan Your Prayer Time

“The plans of the diligent lead to profit, as surely as haste leads to proverty.” (Proverbs 21:5)

God is a God of plans.
In Genesis 6, He presented Noah with a plan for building the ark, and “Noah did everything just as God commanded him.”

In Exodus 7, God revealed His plan to free His people from bondage, and “Moses and Aaron did just as the Lord commanded them.”

In Matthew 21, Jesus issued a plan to prepare for His triumphal entry to Jerusalem, and “The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them.”

In Revelation 1, God reveals His plans for our future and promises His blessing on “those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it.

Praying should be a natural way of life for every Christian, but in reality, many struggle to be consistent. It takes work. It takes commitment and thought. Your prayer journal will help.

By writing down your needs and desires and using this list to pray from, you will be able to focus on praying even in the midst of the daily activities and responsibilities that constantly compete for your attention.

By planning and organizing your prayer time, you will be more likely to keep your commitment to pray for the need of others. Satan knows the power of prayer and will do anything possible to keep you from it. He will cause you to forget and tempt you to procrastinate. Your prayer journal, if you are faithful to use its, will lessen these problems.

By organizing your prayer life according to topics, you will be better able to empathize with the person(s) you are praying for as you spend time believing God for Pacific answers and miracles.

“May He give you the desires of your heart and make all your plans succeed. We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the Lord grant all your requests.” (Palms 20:4-5)
