Request for Prayer

A Structure for Prayer

  1. Choose a TIME
    Make it a time dedicated only to prayer. Try to make it at the best time of your day.
  2. Choose a PLACE
    It should be free from distractions.
  3. CENTER yourself
    Breathe deeply: in through your nose and out through your mouth. Relax your body. Quiet your mind.
  4. Go over BASIC FACTS in your mind
    God created you out of love and loves you always (Genesis 1:27-31, I John 4:10-11)
    God sent Jesus who gives us life (John 3:16, ephesians 2:4-50)
    Jesus died and rose, conquering sin and death (Romans 5:12-18, I Corinthians 15:20-26)
  5. ASK questions
    "Seek the things that are above" (Colossians 3:1)
    Ask questions about daily meditations, Scripture passages and thoughts.
  6. LISTEN for an answer
    Expect to hear God; Listen within yourself, in Scripture, in others and throughout the day.
  7. RESPOND to God
    We can respond by: asking for forgiveness, praying for wisdom, praying for others, committing ourselves to acting, being Christ for others.
