EFFECTUAL  PRAYERS

“And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much”.{James 5:15‭-‬16}•

Four Kinds Of Prayer 🙏🏽

There are many types of prayer. Below are several main categories of prayer. A person may pray one or all of these in a single prayer time, and in any order. You can remember these categories with the acronym ACTS….
(1) Adoration

Prayer, first and foremost, ought to be about worship. God alone is worthy of undiluted praise. That would be true even if God never gave us a thing, and that is why adoration is distinct from thanksgiving. Notice that the Lord’s Prayer 🙏🏽 begins with “ “Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be you name”(Matthew 6:9).
Holding up God’s Name for praise for is our prime duty in prayer. Examples : 1 Chronicles 29:10 ; 2 Chronicles 6:26-27; Luke 2:37..
I say let’s BE RELENTLESS in prayer we got work to do in prayer. Teach us to prayer more in adoration keeping us effective in the area of prayer.

The Second Type Of Prayer 🙏🏽

(2) Confession

“Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us” (Read Luke 11:4). Knowing that human sin blocks communication with God, Jesus taught his disciples to pray this way to make sure that there are no stumbling blocks between God and them. Examples: Read
2 Chronicles 7:14; Daniel 9:4-9 ;; 1 John 1:8-9. I say let’s BE RELENTLESS in prayer 🙏🏽. Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name, Thy Kingdom Come Thy will Be done ✅, in earth 🌎 as it is in heaven.God help to us to confess all sins and repent daily so we stay in righteousness. Continually pray it’s how we communicate with God.

The Third Type Of Prayer 🙏🏽

(3) Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is praise for something God has done for us or given to us – or for what we trust him to do. The apostle Paul thanked God for the believers in Philippians 1:3-5- “ I thank my God upon every remembrance of you. Always in every prayer 🙏🏽 of mine for you all making request with joy. For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now. (KJV). Examples: Read Psalm 100:4;107:1;118:21; Matthew 14:19; Ephesians 1:15-16; 1 Thessalonians 1:2; 5:16-18; 1 Timothy 4:4. I say let’s BE RELENTLESS in prayer 🙏🏽. Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name, Thy Kingdom Come Thy will Be done ✅, in earth 🌏 as it is in heaven. ABBA Father help us to be diligently mindful to pray the prayer 🙏🏽 of thanksgiving in all things good and bad. Help us to confess thanksgiving with a spirit of appreciation constantly in Jesus Name we do it to glorify Jesus and God Our Father. Amen

The Fourth Type Of Prayer 🙏🏽
( Also called Petition )

Our Heavenly Father wants his children to bring their requests to him ( Philippians 4:6 ). Jesus taught, Matthew 7:11- “ If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts 🎁 to those who ask him”.
Intercession is a type of supplication where we pray for the needs and concerns of others. And we should not just pray for our friends, but also “ …pray for those who persecute you” as stated according to Matthew 5:44.
Examples : Read Genesis 24:12;
1 Samuel 7:8. I say let’s BE RELENTLESS in prayer 🙏🏽 we got work to do. Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name, Thy Kingdom Come Thy will Be done ✅, in earth 🌏 as it is in heaven. ABBA Father we ask that your Holy Spirit Release Revelation knowledge unto us so that we may effectively pray for the needs and concerns of others as well as ourselves. Use us as mighty Intercessors for the Kingdom Of God doing the Work Of The Ministry. Anoint us daily with the refilling your power to do everything from God’s point of view.

The Prayers Of Jesus

Jesus took time to pray to God the Father, Jesus “often withdrew to lonely places and prayed”(Luke 5:16) and he would pray for long stretches of time (Luke 6:12).
Jesus:
Prayed for his followers. -John 17:9
Prayed for the children.-Matthew 19:13
Praised the Father in prayer.-Matthew 11:25
Prayed for himself. John 17:1
Prayed for Simon Peter. Luke 22:32
Prayed that his Father’s will be done. Matthew 26:39; Luke 22:42
Thanked the Father in prayer. John 11:41; Luke 24:30
Asked the Father to forgive sinners. Luke 33:43a
Prayed with his last words on the cross. Luke 23: 46
BE RELENTLESS we got work to do! Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name, Thy Kingdom Come Thy will Be done ✅, in earth 🌍 as it is in heaven. ABBA help us to pray the prayers of Jesus. Impart it in our Spirit to know and understand why Jesus took and made time to pray to God the Father. Help us to be more effective in our weakest areas of prayer in Jesus Name Amen 🙏🏽

REMEMBER  

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are  noble, whatever things are  just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are  lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there  is any virtue and if there  is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you”.(Philippians 4:6‭-‬9 NKJV).
