There is a time in the day where one is lost in thought. (meditation) this is the time you hear a still small voice that reveals the deep things of the heart, it is this time that the Holy Spirit teaches you and speaks to you personally about spiritual matters, this is the time one can engage in learning and is a good time to take what ever the Spirit reveals to you that you take in prayer to the Lord.

There is no a time limit as you recognise the issues the more you get locked into prayer with the lord. You will also have your own personal requests, family, life, church, healing, what ever that you'll have to speak to God about.

God is a great teacher in this. I would suggest that you start by talking to Him, get into the habit of talking to Him, through-out the day, and the leading of the Person of the Holy Spirit. It is true that God wants a close relationship with all of His people. I don't think He is getting it. I believe and gather information on what God has told me, that Christians are not praying. This is a grave mistake. I believe prayer should come before studying the word of God. If more Christians were nose to nose with the living God in talking and listening to Him, instead of nose in the Bible, well, God would be happier.

First you can go as deep as you want with God, you will not hit bottom! Be assured God wants a deep relationship with you. Never give up, live your life for him, and he will get close to you. Once you have an experience of going really deep in prayer with God, obey exactly...exactly what his message is to you...do not add to his message, project ahead, just do exactly what he reveals is his direction for you. Once you are living for God, day by day, moment by moment, thank God for everything. Then work it, work it, work the relationship, the love, the giving, obeying him, the joy, the praise, thankfulness...never stop and rest from this obedient behavior, go, go, go..abandon your life to God, to Glorify Him...

To have a deep and effective prayer life, you MUST pray the Bible. This was done back in Bible days, but is now a lost art. Also knowing how to hear the voice of God is a great way to prayer as well, but also a lost art. Get the book by Wesley and Stacey Campbell called "Praying the Bible - The Pathway to Spirituality", and the workbook by Mark and Patti Virkler called "How To Hear God's Voice" on Sid Roth's website "It's Supernatural".

Please be encouraged, because theres only a few...many will be called but only few are chosen. God bless you

I totally agree about crying during prayer time. I like to believe that the tears are a sign of the Holy Spirit breaking through my flesh. I believe that it's a true sign of my connection to the Lord in times of deep spiritual reflection. Crying helps my mental health as well. God's promise to wipe away every tear is both awesome and somewhat beyond my comprehension at this time.
I'm alsolutely starving to reach out to other believers in a deep spiritual way. Perhaps it can ultimately help in my boldness in dealings with non believers out in the "mission field" - thanks!!
---Timothy on 7/18/09


I do many things during my prayer time. I like to get on my knees before God. This really humbles me and put me in the mood to spend time with my Lord. I read scriptures and that leads me into prayer,sometimes. Sometimes I just like to lay on my face before God and just talk to Him about anything and everything. I pray for others(family,friends etc..)usually,before I finish my prayer session.
I ask for things I think I need, but hope is according to His will.
Sometimes I sing to my Father during prayer. Somtimes(a lot)I simply have a good old, fashion crying time. I feel so good and clean all over. I always repent and ask forgiveness for all of my sins. I come away feeling so refreshed,forgiven,loved and blessed.

So many times Christians think that prayer is talking and making God our "Santa Claus" (asking God for everything we want), but I just learned that TRUE PRAYER is listening to and obeying God. For more info. on this, get the books "Romancing The King" by Brian Lake, and "How To Hear God's Voice" by Mark and Patti Virkler.
---Leslie on 5/19/09


the same applies to me , i think its really essential to be in a quiet place with zero disturbance in order to engage in deep prayer.

Christians who believe that the fourth commandment was done away with are selfish, thinking that it interferes with their sermons, prayers, entertainment, ipods, sermons on tape, computers, TV, radio, work, play, worship, shopping, etc. - especially on a Saturday. The Sabbath is man's time with God. To develop a strong and wonderful relationship with Him. Without this personal time, Christians believe in a God, but don't know him personally.
---Steveng on 7/30/07




A Challenge:

Saturday is the most important day in the life of a man and a woman. It's this day where he and she accomplishes things for themselves that they can't do during the week.

The challenge: take the next seven Sabbaths (from Friday at 6PM to Saturday at 6PM) to be alone with God and see how much more you'll be blessed. Once you begin, don't stop until after the seventh week.

Any takers?
---Steveng on 7/30/07


Man has has cluttered every minute of every day with sermons, prayers, entertainment, ipods, sermons on tape, computers, TV, radio, work, play, worship, shopping, etc. It's no wonder why Christians believe that prayers are one way and dry because they don't have time to sit down to listen to the whispers of God's answers. This is why it's important to observe the fourth commandment, especially in today's hectic and highly stressed society.

i beleive every body as there own way they spend with god,you can have a good prayer life all day,practise this jesus is walking beside you every miunite of the day ask him questions talk to him like its a human friend standing there,cause we wonts to be your best friend,he wonts you to put him first in every decision,every conversation,even to talk too if someone gets us angry or upset.
---nikki on 7/30/07


First I like to be alone. Next I like to approach GOD with praise and thanksgiving with full recognition of His sovereignty, His sovereignty, not my desires, not my wants, but His complete and full sovereignty. Next I like tO tell Him what I believe about things. And ask Him to remove from me in any manner He so desires what He doesn't like about my beliefs. Having done that I get myself in a receiving mood for God's blessings.
---Mima on 7/20/07


I communicate (pray) in a few different ways. One way is to send an email. I type up a letter as if I'm writing to my best friend and confidant. When I have questions. I ask them and then search the Bible for the answer. I usually find it. Throughout the day, I direct whatever thoughts and feelings I have to God. Hope you find this useful. I'll be interested in other's prayer tips!
---Robin on 7/20/07


part 3

Faith is esential to prayer. Matthew 21:22, Mark 11:24 and James 1:3-8 for faith is the recognition of and the coommittal of ourselves and our matters, the FAITHFULNESS OF GOD.

There is so much instructions in prayer in the Bible, and examples here and there of prayers that the Bible Study itself can be governed by prayer.

In short prayer is a nice way to talk with God, as long a I listen too.

Part 2

The Holy Spirit, being the sole (only) interpreter of the needs of the human heart, makes His intercession therein: and inasmuch a prayer is impossible to man apart from His help - Romans 8:26, believers are exhorted to pray at all seasons in the Spirit, Ephesians 6:18 - Jude verse 20, and James 5:16, the last clause of which should probably by read "the inwrought {i.e. by the Holy Spirit] supplication of righteous man availeth much (or greatly prevails as in in Acts 19:16,20)

Want to write a long letter, but copied from a book. Called Vine's Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words. Page 481 - definition #3

Part 1

Prayer is properly addressed to God the Father (Matthew 6:6, John 16:23; Ephesians 1:17, 3:14) and in one example by Stephen in Acts 7:59 and 60. But it is never addressed to the Holy Spirit. Prayer is offered in the name of the Lord Jesus - John 14:13- must be in accordance with His character, and must be presented in the same spirit of dependence and submission that marked Him (Matthew 11:26 and Luke 22:42)

I first seek Him, then honor Him. Then I get myself in a humble aditude And remember who He is to me. I thank Him and praise Him. Then, I begin to pray to Him applying God's word where I can. As I know that He hears me, I rest and am at peace. I talk to Him about others needs and ask His Mercy on them. I get still before Him and thank Him for listening to me. And I listen for Him to speak to me.

God Bless.

I go to a quiet place on my own, I close my eyes and start to thank Him for what he has done in my life...soft christian music playing, and I praise Him .By this time I am in the Presence of God and I pray as the Spirit leads. He may not sometimes want you to pray, but in the quietness He may want to speak with you.
---Jan on 4/21/05


The art of communication. Praying is simply talking to Jesus, or talking to Father God through Jesus. He is the Savior and we the savee, he is the Spirit and we are the dust. First we invite or call for his Presence, his Holy Spirit Presence is unmistakable. i find that when i humble myself by bowing my heart, and surrender completely over to him, for him to have his way, then my prayer time is rich. But if i ever get my will before his, and i do all of the talking, then many times he will just walk away from me- even while i'm still blabbing selfishly.
---Eloy on 4/20/05


I do two things that really bless me when I have a prayer session. I either write my prayers in a journal as a letter to God, and I pour my heart out to Him during it. OR, I pray scriptures. Sometimes I even do both. I will read a verse, and then write asking the Lord to help me understand and apply that verse in my life, then read another and so on.
---Madison on 4/19/05


This is what I do. I go into my room and close the door and get down on my knees and say, 'Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil for thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever. Amen.' Then I leave my room and watch.
