Prayer & Prayer Supplication

For Prayer Requests here or How to Pray for the Lost here

I’m a wanna-be prayer warrior. I long to grow a deeper prayer life, but I have a secret struggle with boredom. I know prayer carries power and changes lives. But when I sit down to pray, I find it hard to focus. After three minutes, my mind thinks about yesterday, or wanders to my to-do list. Or I try to pray before bed, but I fall asleep. 

Are prayer wimps a thing? I suspect I am one and I'm left wondering how to pray better.

I don’t mean to be flippant. Prayer is an amazing privilege. Through words like these in scripture, we have an open invitation from the God of the universe: “Call to me and I will answer you.” (Jeremiah 33:3) We have a promise that He hears us: "You will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you." (Jeremiah 29:12) 

Through the pages of our Bibles, we see examples of men who prayed. Even Jesus, the Son of God, prayed. So I know I should too, but I find it challenging. I suspect I’m not alone. Many Christians struggle with knowing how to pray.

It is time for every Christian to seriously consider their relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ. Each of us much look within ourselves with all honesty and ask “is my life poured out, have I set aside my dreams, my ambitions, my perspectives, and embraced His vision, His. goal, His view?”

An honest evaluation will reveal that most of us have drifted dangerously close to a faith which is disastrous mixture of apathy, complacency, and the traditions of men. There is no difficulty in identifying this attitude because it is filled with ‘Me, Myself and I’ – self centeredness, selfishness and self-worship.

There is only one way to stop this degeneration, only one way to return to our first love, only one way to avoid this terrible state of deception. Repentance. Pray now…

"Lord, I am sorry. I rend my heart and not my clothes. I refuse to live a life of pretensions, an external show without a commitment. My cry before You is, Help me to seek Your will before my will, Your way before my way. Lord, help me to decrease, so that You may increase.”

WHAT SHALL I DO?

Be Available – Abandon yourself to God and to His call on your life. Tell Him you will go
anywhere and do anything that He shows you as His will for you.

Be Informed – Don’t hide behind ignorance. Gather all the information you can so you
can pray and seek the Lord intelligently. Subscribe to missions publications and make
it a priority to know what’s going on in the world. If you know where the needs are,
it will be easier for you to meet some of them.

Be Inspired – Checkout our booklist and get hold of some inspiring biographies of
Christian missionaries. You will find out that most “missionary greats” are just common
people who decided to let their love for God and their love for the lost overrule their
own desires in life – allowing God to use them in bold and wonderful ways.

Expect An Open Door
– Expect God to give you an opportunity to fully serve Him
through this new information you are exposing yourself to. Then when He opens the
door – walk through it!
