Learn to Pray – From the WORD
How do we learn to pray?
I think the first way most people learn is to listen to others and pray as they do. This is good in some ways, but if the person you are listening is praying more according to tradition than the Word of God, you will learn habits of ineffective prayer.
There is prayer that is just to fellowship and spend time with God, which is wonderful. But in most cases when we pray, we are praying to get results. We want to see what we pray for come to pass. If few of our prayers are working, we need to check for solutions as to why. Where do we check? The Word of God, especially the New Testament where we now live. Don’t make some religious excuse for unanswered prayer like maybe it isn’t God’s will or maybe He is making your wait. If you pray according to His Word, you can have ALL of your prayers answered (1 John 5:14-15; John 15:7).
