1-“PRAY Lest You Lose Heart!”-{Luke 18:1}- The Alternative to prayer is to spiritually faint, and lose heart. Prayer is the alternative and what keeps us from losing heart and spiral down!

2. -Devote yourselves to PRAYER staying alert with THANKSGIVING”-{Col 4:2}. Prayer is to be learned, something to narrow in and give ourselves to and the fuel to give the heart burning is THANKSGIVING. Giving Thanks to Him is what primes the pump. Thankfulness fuels the furnace of developing devotion and maintaining alertness to prayer. The word “alert.” used in this verse is the same Jesus used when He asked the disciples why they could not stay alert when they slept in the garden. They were physically out of it! To spiritually stay In it- develop a heart of gratitude towards the LORD for His Person, People{Read Col 1:3-5}, His Son,… Read Colossians and underline what He says to be thankful for and use in your praying…. to develop thanksgiving which is the CONTINUING GIVING OF THANKS.

3. -“PRAY without Ceasing”-{1 Thess 5:16-18} -“Without Ceasing” was used of “a hacking cough”….just as you get a cold and have a cough that regularly interrupts, so praying without ceasing is an attitude where you are ready to pray anywhere anytime and there are regular interruptions of prayer been communicated to God from things you see, or people who come to mind~ How wonderful, anywhere, anytime you can pray about the beautiful, the worrying, the things you see, hear, think, turn it into PRAYER.

4. – “But WHEN YOU PRAY you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who  sees what is done in secret, WILL REWARD YOU,” -{Matthew 6:6 } – Prayer is EXPECTED, “WHEN YOU PRAY…”… and KNOW He does SEE YOU, does HEAR YOU, does REWARD… PRAY with EXPECTATION!

5. – “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. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”-{1 Tim 2:1-4} – PRAY for those in authority. Instead of complaining and moaning , TAKE IT TO THE THRONE and PRAY, NOT FOR YOUR WILL TO BE DONE BUT HIS WILL … PRAY FOR THE SPIRITUALLY WELL-BEING OF THOSE in Authority for the sake of the Gospel going forth….in the land…

6. – “Therefore PRAY the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” -{Matt 6:38} – PRAY To The LORD Of The Harvest. LOOK Outward. Look at the people in your circumstances, look on the masses as JESUS did not with contempt or as vile or as an      inconvenience but with COMPASSION for they were as sheep without a shepherd, needy, helpless people and the FIRST thing He tells His people is to PRAY… TO… THE…LORD OF ….THE …HARVEST…. to compel Laborers into His Harvest. We often pray for our children, which is good, but do we pray they would be compelled into His harvest, to have eternal perspective for PEOPLE, the well being of their soul’s? We     need to PRAY… WITH …A HARVEST… PERSPECTIVE…

7. – “Be anxious about nothing PRAY about EVERYTHING…” -{Phil 4:6} -You can PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING! Prayer in faith is an anxiety buster! And a PRE-REQUISITE To The Peace Of God.

8. – “PRAY, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.”-{Matt 6:8-9} – PRAY for His Glory, To “hallow His Name” is to show reverence, honor and desire in our praying that it be reflected. PRAY TO GOD Your Father, and Pray for His Kingdom, His will be done, in the matter, in the person you are praying to Him for. PRAY ABOUT HIS BUSINESS!



The above verses are but some on Who to PRAY to.. what to PRAY about… how to maintain PRAYER… and live in an attitude of PRAYING without ceasing, wherever you are! I once heard people speak about PRAYER been banned in school, but be that as it may, they cannot ban PRAYER from your heart!
