Praying hands

As Jehoshaphat was watching the enemy amass themselves against him, he turned to God in prayer (2 Chronicles 20). He was in a period where he was leading well and teaching his people to fear God, so God obliterates the enemy. Jehoshaphat’s reign was always either hot or cold in its relationship with the Lord – so why did God so completely respond to that prayer?

The Bible is full of tips on how to pray. Here are five:

  1. The prayer of the righteous is effective (James 5:16)
  2. Prayer is to be offered in Thanksgiving (Philippians 4:6, 1 Thessalonians 5:18 )
  3. Prayer should be continuous (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
  4. Prayer should be offered Sincerely (Matthew 6:5)
  5. Prayer should be offered with humility (Luke 18:10-14)
