5 Ways to Jump Start Your Prayer Life

Prayer is a vital part of your walk as a believer in Jesus; I would like to give you a few fast ways to boost your prayer life.

There are many stories in the bible about the power of prayer. There could have been times in your life when you knew someone was praying for you.

I believe that younger people can be exceedingly effective prayer soldiers and the Lord hears their prayers

In 1 Thessalonians 5:17 the scripture simply asserts “Pray continuously” however sometimes it can a challenge to hope continually. But it’s not impossible!

If you want help in your prayer life here are one or two proposals to help Jumpstart your prayer life

1. Start with thanks
Just start your prayer thanking God, though not only what he has done in your life but also the sacrifice he made on the cross, You will find giving thanks to God is a great way to begin a prayer.

2. Pray continually

This one could be obvious but can be tough to do, I am not saying to hope every waking hour of your day, but be looking for opportunities to pray. And pray and give thanks as often as it springs to mind.

3. Add worship

For me when I hear worship music, it not only moves my heart but I find it way easier to offer prayers. I believe pray and worship is very powerful together.

4. Pray for others first

I suspect when young people pray for others, it is extremely powerful and effective. James 5:16b says “The prayer of a righteous man is potent and effective.” Don’t let anyone tell you any different. There are tons of requests on FaithFreaks.com prayer boards

5. Fast

Yea; this is troublesome, I have found that often by just fasting a selected thing for even a day can be useful when you use that time that you would have spent on “that thing” to pray.

There are my 5 suggestions, I know there are numerous more, Maybe you have a few of your own you want to share?

Finally, The secret’s to keep praying and do not give up and if you’re really stuck, kick off with the Lord’s Prayer. Matthew 6:9.
