Prayer


The following are "simply suggestions" which may be of some help in order to develop your own prayer life:

A typical one (1) hour prayer session might be as follows:

Pray aloud if alone, or if everyone in the room agrees to pray together.



PRAISE GOD: (about 10 minutes)

For his creative powers; For his attributes: He is holy, just, loving, faithful, unchanging.  For His redeeming love; for this time of year when we remember the gift of His son, when we remember His humbling Himself to the point of death on a cross.   Read some sections of the Bible as part of your praise, such as Psalm 19, Psalm 47, Psalm 66, Psalm 100, Psalm 103, Psalm 104, Luke 1:46-55;  Sing a praise song or hymn.



CONFESS SINS: (about 10 minutes)

Confession is agreeing with God, whom you have just praised, that all sin is sinful.   Confess your own sins to him, be specific!  (If praying with others, you may want to agree to conduct this section silently).  Reading Psalm 51 would be a good beginning.   Include in your confession: Sins of commission: Sins against: Sins of omission: Sins of groups to which you belong: Your church, your denomination, your profession, your race, your country.  Psalms 32, Daniel 9:4-19, and Nehemiah 1:5-11 may be appropriate for reading at this point.



INTERLUDE

You may want to take five minutes of silence at this point, reflecting on what you have said.

Meditate on the wonder and mystery of 1 John 1:9: "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."



GIVE THANKS TO GOD: (about 10 minutes)

For God's forgiveness;  For His great sacrifice for our sins;  For what He has done for you in this last year;  For what He will do for you in the coming year;  For the natural beauty of our world;  For your church;   For individuals within your Christian Fellowship;  For your family;  For health;   For the trials and "all things".




INTERCESSION: (about 20 minutes)

For Others: For Christian Fellowship: That many individuals would receive Christ in your country; in other parts of the world. For your family, neighbors, others. For God's Kingdom  Pray that God's kingdom will come, that His will may be done in earth as in heaven. Consider the implications of this phrase that so often rolls off our lips, and elaborate on it. For Yourself



CLOSING (about 5 minutes)

You may want to sing another song of praise, or spend another few minutes in silence.   You may use the following to close:

I pray that out of Your glorious riches You may strengthen me with power through Your Spirit in my inner being, so that Christ may dwell in my heart through faith. And I pray that I, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ and to know this love that surpasses knowledge -- that I may be filled with the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever. Amen." (Ephesians 3:16-21, modified)



. . . and now, as you go through your Day:

"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
(1st Thessalonians Chapter 5 Verse 18)
