Prayer is an integral part of every Christian’s life. It’s our main way of communication with God. So if you’ve ever found your prayer life lacking, here are 7 steps to help you improve it.
1. Always Be Praying
Don’t only pray before you eat and before you sleep. Talk to God through out your day.
2. Pray For Others
Prayer time isn’t only about you. Lift the people in your life up in prayer. Whether it’s your spouse, your friends, or that annoying guy at work.
3. Pray For An Open Heart
Ask God to move in you and guide your life. As God guides you, He’ll show you what needs prayer.
4. Don’t Do All The Talking
Prayer isn’t a one-way street. It’s a conversation! Let God move in you. More likely than not, you won’t hear an actual voice, but God may plant some ideas in your spirit.
5. Don’t Give God Your Grocery List
Don’t spend all your time asking God for stuff. Again, prayer is a conversation. How would you like it if someone only talked to you when they needed stuff and then left?
6. Praise God
Take time to thank God for all that He’s done in your life. Give Him the glory He deserves. When you notice a blessing in your life, be sure to say thank you.
7. Look at How God Taught Us To Pray
In Luke 11 Jesus gave us the outline of how we are to pray. Take time to look at the passage and breakdown what Jesus is saying in each part.
Hopefully this list has given you some ideas on how to improve your time with God. Remember, the only way to be good at something is practice. So keep praying!
