Rejoice in the Lord always. Again
I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at
hand. 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. Philippians 4:4-7
"And when you pray, do not use vain
repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for
their many words. Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the
things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore,

ourselves in the dungeons of doubt, that you will hear our questions.
Forgive us for demanding that you answer our questions as we want them

Billy Graham on Prayer: The Bible says, Pray
without ceasing! This means that we must be always ready to pray.
Prayer is like a child's communion with a father. Because the Christian is
one who has been born into the family of God, it is as natural to pray as it
is for an earthly child to ask his or her father for the things he or she
needs. We are living in dangerous times; and if there was ever a time when
we needed to pray, it's now. Because more can be done by prayer than
anything else! Prayer is our greatest weapon!
Prayer is for God's
children. God does not hear the prayers of sinners.
Effectual prayer is
offered in faith. Believe what you pray.
prayer emanates from an obedient heart. Obey God's rules.
Pray in Jesus
Christ's name. Christ is our Savior and intercessory to God.
Desire the will of
God. Pray that God's will be done, not yours.
Pray for God's
glory. We must give God the glory for everything.

ignorance in prayer:

makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered
When you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For
they think that they will be heard for their many words
The Bible invites us, actually commands
us, to pray:
In everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your
requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may
obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

But you, when you
pray, go into your room, and when you have your door, pray to your Father
who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward
you openly. Matthew 6:6
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask
