"DON'T WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING; INSTEAD, PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING. TELL GOD WHAT YOU NEED, AND THANK HIM FOR ALL HE HAS DONE."
WHERE TO START?
Here’s a visual prayer video you can play before going to bed or first thing in the morning. This isn’t a video on how to pray, but it is a prayer and you can follow along or use as inspiration to create your own personal prayer. If you need help with making your own prayer feel free to use the structure below:
FIRST: Start by thanking God for the little and small things in your life.
SECOND: Pray for others whether that's family, friends, or strangers.
THIRD: Ask God for what’s in your heart. Be sincere and focus on qualities and attributes versus a shopping list. Be honest with yourself I hope you found this helpful.
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.
1 JOHN 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
1 JOHN 5:14
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
If you are unsure where to start when praying, we hope that our short guide can direct you in the right direction. With examples, guide, video and verses; we pray this helps in your Christian journey.
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened." Matthew 7:7-8
