How to Pray to God, Even when you feel discouraged. A message of Hope
To pray effectively, we must know God well enough so that our words are in line with His will. We should want our prayers to agree with what God says about a matter rather than giving God ideas which do not align with His will.
The Kind of Prayer that God wants – How to Pray to God
God’s character and God’s Word are not at odds with one another. God cannot lie, God is love, God does not do evil things. God loves an honest prayer, a heart of worship and a heart of obedience. God will not hear or answer any prayer that goes against His nature – but He promises to always cheerfully give us what we ask for if it lines up with His will!
“The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.” We need to learn how to pray to God, because, God wants us to talk to Him about our lives and wants all details known – even those we might think unimportant or too small for God to care about. God desires our fellowship so much that He gave us the ability to communicate with Him as friends through prayer.
God will answer every prayer! That you did not get the answer right away does not mean that God will not respond to your prayers. He will surely give answer to your prayers at the appropriate time, because, there is time for everything.
God loves to give good gifts to His children – God is full of surprises! God can work miracles at any time, not just when He did during bible times, if we only believe and never doubt even one moment.
God does not work in accordance with our fears, our worries or our doubts – God works in accordance with His word!!! Pray boldly because God always hears you regardless of how long it takes in this life for your prayer to be answered; don’t give up! God loves you no matter what; God will never leave you nor forsake you! God promises His protection to those who love Him and those who are called according His purpose. “I have loved you with an everlasting love, so I am constant in my affection for you.” (Jeremiah 31:3)
“Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him and on those who hope in his steadfast love …” (Psalm 33:18) “A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all.” (Psalm 34:19)
“The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.” (Psalm 34:7)
Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.” (Psalm 50:15) God will always answer our prayers!!! God is ever-present always listening – God is good all the time!!! God hears your every prayer every time no matter how small or unimportant it may seem at times. Speak everything to God in prayer knowing God hears you because He hears everyone’s prayers every time. Be bold and ask for anything even if God’s Word doesn’t specifically mention it by name.
“Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” (Psalm 27:14) God takes His time to answer some of our prayers, because He knows what’s best for us. God’s timing is always perfect, so be patient in prayer!!! God will hear your prayers! “The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him.” (Lamentations 3:25) Amen.
“Patience is better than pride, and waiting than both!” (Proverbs 19:11)
God wants you to pray bold prayers – God wants you to pray with all of your heart and all of your mind without worrying about anything. When we worry about problems, we give them our strength and power – but when we leave everything up to God, with His full power, He will do His will.
“Cast your burden on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” (Psalm 55:22)
“The Lord is near to all who call upon him, to all who call upon him in truth.” (Psalm 145:18).
