How to pray effectively : All people love this verse from Luke 5:16 because it shows that just like you and all people, Jesus needed a break from the demands of his busy life to recharge his batteries and spend time with his Heavenly Father. The life of Christ is intended to give us examples we can follow and learn from.
So, even though he was God incarnate, Jesus didnt draw on his superpowers as the Son of God when it came to facing lifes challenges. Instead, when he was exhausted or burdened or in need of spiritual refreshment, he would slip away to pray plugging into the power, perception, and purpose that can only be found in Gods presence.
But Jesus Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray.
Luke 5:16, AMP
Prayer is one of the most powerful weapons God has given us, and looking ahead at 2020, I believe it has never been more important for Gods people to be on our knees. But knowing how to pray is not always easy. Jesus disciples felt the same confusion. They were familiar with the oft-repeated prayers of the Torah. But Jesus prayed with a kind of authority and power they had never seen before as though God was listening! So when they came to Jesus, as told in Matthew 6, they didnt say, Teach us another prayer. They said, Lord, teach us to pray.
The Lords Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13) is Christs response. It is a beautiful prayer and one that every Christian should hide in their heart I just challenged my granddaughter to memorize it. But elegant as the words are, I do not believe Jesus intended it to become another ritualistic prayer. Rather, it was to be an example of how to pray.
Here are tips that have helped a lot of people to develop a more powerful prayer life. I hope they will encourage you to make 2020 a year of prayer.
1. Know to whom you are speaking: Prayer is a conversation with God, and every conversation begins by addressing the person to whom you are speaking by name
2. Thank him: A heartfelt thank you is always a great conversation starter. Like any parent, God loves to see that we have grateful hearts.
3. Ask for Gods will: The Lords Prayer is not the only place where Jesus role-modeled a heart of obedience and submission to the will of God over his own desires and needs
