Some Notes on Prayer

I've gotten some good responses to my posts about Bible Study & Prayer and some requests to keep the notes and ideas coming, so here are a few from my Bible Study class on Sunday, and some things I have found on my own over the past couple of days. [In case you are looking for a good study on enhancing your prayer life, I recommend "A Woman After God's Own Heart" by Elizabeth George & any of the "Power of Praying" books by Stormie Omartian]

*10 Ways to Improve Your Prayer Life:

1. Use a prayer list or notebook where you can keep track of all of the requests you get.
2. Schedule a prayer time everyday...if you make an appointment with God, you can be assured that he will show up.
3. Spend time praying with others.
4. Pray using Scripture [this is something that I am learning how to do, and I'm really excited about it.]
5. Borrow from the prayers of others [there are a lot of Good prayers that you can google on the internet]
6. Open and close each day with prayer [You will be amazed at how much smoother your day will go and how much better you will sleep if you do this].
7. Gain inspiration from the biographies of others who have prayed.
8. Study and reflect on the prayers in the Bible. [I love reading the Psalm's.]
9. Follow through on your resolve- No decision made without prayer.
10. Feed your heart and mind DAILY with God's word.

~Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays.

~Don't give God instructions, just report for duty.

~The task ahead of us is never as great as the POWER behind us.

~If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it already has.

~7 Days without prayer= 1 Weak

~If your day is hemmed in with prayer, it is less likely to become unraveled.

~"Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man to cease from prayer." -Oswald Chambers

~"The word of God is the food by which prayer is nourished and made strong." -E.M. Bounds

~"God has editing rights over our prayers. He will...edit them, correct them, bring them in line with HIS will and then hand them back to us to be resubmitted." -Stephen Crotts.

Hope you enjoyed these. I'm sure I will have some more of these soon. There are tons in my Study Book. I love Quotes and things that inspire me. I keep an entire Notebook full of them.

I remember The C.S. Lewis character in the movie "The Shadowlands" saying that when he prayer doesn't change God...it changes him. That so stuck with me. Great post!

Thanks for the tips! I have The Power of a Praying Parent, it's great. I found a 3 in 1 with all three of her prayer books at Lifeway. Hoping to get this for my birthday next weekend!!
