Effective Global Praying

How can we pray more effectively?

Preparation for intercessory prayer is always necessary. When God appears to be silent, when everything seems not to be working out, it may help to turn to worship by praising God with your mind, soul and spirit. Remembering that God is good all the time, draw into His presence by confessing wrong attitudes and actions which will help to tune into God. It is always a good idea to read the Bible as it helps us to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit within. Then finally ‘Ask, Seek and Knock’.

It might help to pray for measurable objectives and list those things, people and countries that God may want you to pray over, asking God for the prayer to pray. Never give up and always persevere in prayer as we must expect a ‘spiritual battle’. Put on the armour of God, face the enemy and pray with the authority of Jesus Christ and pray in faith (Hebrews 11:1) “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Remember that God’s responsibilities are creation, ownership, control, provision, direction and the protection of everything. Our role is simply to be faithful, to receive the Lord’s provision and to serve Jesus faithfully.
