BEGINNING A LIFE OF PRAYER

It doesn’t matter whether you are a new Christian, or have spent years waiting to get serious about your prayer life - when you are ready, God is there to help. Ask Him to guide and strengthen you, to give you the discipline you need. The important thing is to begin, and to be consistent. We’re not talking about the kind of praying we do "on the run"; for most of us that comes relatively easily as we send up prayers for help throughout the day. But a life of prayer is the essence of the personal love relationship with the Lord - and that comes from giving Him undivided time and attention every day through prayer and reading His Word. There aren’t any short cuts.

 

DAILY QUIET TIME

The encouraging thing is we can all begin with just a few minutes a day. Decide on a few personal guidelines for your prayer life:


• when to have it (same time every day)

how long to spend (be realistic; God will honor even a few minutes a day if you are consistent)

where to have it (somewhere private, undisturbed)

find a Bible you can easily understand.

TEN MINUTES WITH THE LORD

If you are not having a consistent daily quiet time, begin with just ten minutes, and use your time for a prayer of surrender:
 

Tell the Lord how much you love Him, and how you desire to know and love Him even more. (Matthew 22:37)

Surrender your life to Him. (Romans 12:1)

Ask Him to bring any unconfessed sin to mind, and agree with Him that it is sin, tell Him you’re sorry, and ask for His strength not to repeat it. (Matthew 6:9)

Thank Him for His forgiveness and for loving you.

Ask Him to hear your prayers throughout the day.


 

This could be the most important ten minutes you’ll ever spend. God will honor it in ways you cannot imagine.

PRAYER FORCE

 

To help you get started, we have included at least half an hour of soothing prayer music to play during your prayer time.

The purpose of the Prayer Force ministry is to actively encourage and promote prayer within the life of the church. By being open and responsive to the working of the Holy Spirit, we pray that God's love, guidance and healing power would be released for the benefit of His people and to His glory.

Effective prayer ministry is more than a program, or weekly prayer meetings, prayer chains, & prayer walks. It is a lifestyle of connecting and communing with God.
