3 Pray in Faith (Your Prayer Life) o To Busy Not to Pray, by Bill Hybels o The Practice of the Presence of God, by Brother Lawrence o The Complete Works of E.M. Bounds on Prayer, by E.M. Bounds How Often Should We Pray 1 Corinthians 1:4 I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that was given you in Christ Jesus, Ephesians 6:18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, Philippians 1:3-4 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, Colossians 1:3 (KJV) We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, 1 Thessalonians 5:17 pray without ceasing How Should We Pray Psalm 66:17 I cried to him with my mouth, and high praise was on my tongue. Psalm 95:2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV) After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 1 Corinthians 14:15 What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also. James 1:6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. What Should We Pray For Psalm 50:14-15 Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving, and perform your vows to the Most High, and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me. Psalm 118:25 Save us, we pray, O LORD! O LORD, we pray, give us success! Psalm 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they be secure who love you! Romans 10:1 Brothers, my heart s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. Romans 10:13 For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Who Should We Pray For Romans 15:30 I appeal to you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God on my behalf, 2 Corinthians 1:11 You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many. 1 Timothy 2:1-2 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. James 5:13-14 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. James 5:16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
