On Prayer

We have a plaque hanging on our wall that states : "Prayer Changes Things." Prayer is important. Prayer is critical. And prayer is a blessing and that plaque is a good daily reminder to me to make time to pray. But I also need to remember that it isn't the fact that I'M praying that changes things, but GOD behind the prayer. It is GOD who changes things, God's power that makes the impossible possible. Here are some helpful verses about prayer:
  • God Hears Us When We Pray
    Jeremiah 33:3
    Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.

    Psalm 4:3b The Lord listens when I call to Him.
  • As a Christian We Are Called to Pray
    Colossians 4:2
    Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.

    Philippians 4:6
    Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God

    1 Thessalonians 5:17
    Pray without ceasing.

    Ephesians 6:18-20
    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 saints. Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel…pray that I may declare it fearlessly as I should.

  • Reasons to Pray
    Matthew 26:41
    Watch and pray so that you do not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.

    Proverbs 3:16
    Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed

    Colossians 3:17
    Whatever you do, in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord giving thanks to God the Father through him.

    Hebrews 4:16
    Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

    James 1:5
    But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who give to all men generously and without reproach, and it shall be given him.

  • What to Pray For
    Philippians 1:9-11
    And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God.

    Ephesians 3:17-19
    And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saint, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

    Ephesians 1:18-19
    I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.

    Psalm 19:14
    May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in your sight O Lord my Rock and my Redeemer.

    Colossians 1:9-12
    For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying about you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.

  • How to Pray
    ~ Intelligently
    Ecclesiasties 5:2
    Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few.

    ~ Sincerely
    Matthew 7:7-8
    Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks find; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

    Hebrews 4:16
    Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

    ~ Humbly
    Isaiah 59:1-2
    Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.

    ~ Always
    1 Thessalonians 5:17
    Pray without ceasing.

    Romans 12:12
    Rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer. (NAS)
    Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. (NIV)

    ~ Thankfully
    Philippians 4:6
    Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
