Updated: Dec 27, 2021
There is a few biblical tips and advice on prayer below.
PRAYER is the key tool that is needed to stay connected to the Father through His Son Jesus Christ.
1] KNOW WHO TO PRAY TO AND WHAT IS THE NAME: Jesus Christ is the Son of God sent by the Father; the Father has given all power to The Son in heaven and in earth [MATTHEW 28:18 KJV]. You must know that all the fullness of the Fathers Holy Spirit is manifested in The Son/Jesus Christ; therefore, the only way to communicate to the Father is Through His Son Jesus Christ [JOHN 14:6 KJV, 1 TIMOTHY 2:5 KJV]
2] MAKE SURE YOU PRAY WITH THANKSGIVING: Thank the Lord in everything you pray for, even when you don't receive it right then. [PHILIPPIANS 4:6 KJV]
3] ASK HIM TO FORGIVE YOU AND TO HELP YOU FORGIVE OTHERS; In every prayer you do ask the Lord to search your heart and mind for anything not of Him; ask Him to forgive you of all iniquity and to help you stay away from willful sin. Forgive others if you want to be forgiven according to [MATTHEW 6:15 KJV, MATTHEW 18:21-22, LUKE 6:27, EPHESIANS 4:32]
4] ASK HIM TO HELP YOU OVERCOME TEMPTATION: In every prayer ask the Lord to help you overcome temptations of the flesh and to deliver you from any evil thereof. [MATTHEW 26:41, MARK 13:35-37 KJV]
5] MAKE SURE WHAT YOU PRAY IS IN HIS WILL: Make sure that what you're praying for is according to His will; therefore, after every prayer say something like ''LET YOUR WILL BE DONE'' OR '' I ASK ALL THIS ACCORDING TO YOUR WILL AND NOT MY OWN''.
6] BELIEVE THAT YOUR PRAYER IS HEARD: End your prayer with something like '' IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST I PRAY AMEN''. That is a way to show that you believe it has been done.
7] DON'T PRAY TO MAKE YOURSELF LOOK GOOD BEFORE OTHERS: Make sure you give Glory to God in everything you do; don't do it to receive praise from people around you. [MATTHEW 6:5-8 KJV]
