Praying hands

In the previous article, 5 Tips for Effective Prayer, we saw some qualities our prayer should have when making our requests from God. A quality prayer that pleases God contains much more than personal requests to satisfy our needs and wants. God is pleased with praise of his name and of his majesty, much like we read in Psalm 48. Let’s take some time today to think about the part of our prayers that do not ask anything but offer the Lord our everything.

Here are five tips that will help:

  1. Speak to Him reverently (Matthew 6:9)
  2. Praise for Him (Matthew 6:13b – For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. The NIV and other versions do not include this part of the verse)
  3. Offered with a merciful spirit (James 2:13)
  4. Not offered to be seen of others (Matthew 6:6)
  5. Prayer is to be accompanied by personal action (Luke 6:46)
