Knowing how to pray is only one of the things you should know. It is equally important to know what to pray about. That has as much bearing on the results as knowing how to pray, because what you pray for speaks to your motives and whether God would answer them or not.
Pray that God will help you to continually walk in love
Love is the fulfilling of God’s law in the New Testament. It is the supreme principle of life in the Kingdom of God. Your maturity in God is determined by how much of God’s love is in you, and how much of it you walk in towards others. It demonstrates that you have been filled with the fullness of God.
As you grow in love, you are becoming fuller with the presence of God and your appreciation of God, others and your purpose. I dare say this should be the first thing you place among your prayer topics. True love gives of itself and is not mere words, but actions — decisive actions that put others ahead of yourself.
Ask God to give you more and more grace
Grace is the beauty of God on the life of a man. One of the commonest definitions of grace is that it is unmerited favour. We find that the grace of God expressed on many levels in many ways.
The first manifestation of the grace of God is the one that made possible a way of salvation for fallen man. It is important to understand that God’s blessings are not earned by meritorious works.
That important understanding with grace signifies that you attribute all your success, excellence and glory of your life to the God who places His own beauty on your life and gives you His grace to be everything you are. That beauty results in favour, blessings, advantage, and the power to do things that are beyond human ability and expect divine results.
Pray that you will constantly experience the fellowship of the Holy Spirit
God gave the Holy Spirit to the humans, so he can lead us daily in our life walk. The Holy Spirit is himself, God. He is known in the Scriptures as the Spirit of the Father and the Spirit of the Son. He is the Spirit of God.
Everyone who knows God today knows Him because they have a relationship with the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit brings the presence of God to you, so you know God is always with you.
Pray that God will give you compassion for the lost and the unsaved world
This is the highest calling of every believer: to be a channel. Thereby the lost will come to know the human being. Making that decision to come to God himself.
That mandate requires that we have compassion for the lost and the unsaved, the hurt and the broken, the abused and the afflicted of this world. Compassion is what will make us act. Compassion will make us go out and be a blessing to a hurting and dying world. Many people encounter the lost every day but have no drive to win them.
It takes the compassion of God to care about the lost and unsaved and to go to every length possible to win them.
Pray for a better understanding of God’s will and divine purpose for your life
God has a plan for everyone. And in that plan, there are general directions to go, and there are specific things for each person to accomplish.
The success of your life is directly a case of how much of God’s will and purpose for your specific life you are able to accomplish while on earth. Every human must strive to know what that purpose is and walk accordingly in this world.
There is a blueprint for every child of God to follow; some things are general and apply to all believers everywhere, while others are quite unique to individuals and God’s special plan for each of his people.
These prayers will help you to grow as an all-round human, ready and prepared to be a blessing to your world. Make praying your consistent lifestyle and pray these prayers for yourself or for others daily, and the results will amaze you. Believe in it & Go for it!
