Secrets Of A Powerful Prayer Life

We often think that by uttering sentences of prayers in the mornings and evenings or every now & then, attending Sunday masses and occasional thanksgiving masses, doing good to other people are already enough to say that we are righteous, that we are following His will. Partially, YES! But we need to check our motives sometimes, I am not accusing other people nor telling them what to do, but we often see people are only doing these things only to show off. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Needless to say, we believe what are have been taught and of all the things we see. List below, are things we should know about and practice in our daily lives.
Dr. Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, has identified the following ingredients to a powerful prayer life in the Ten Basic Steps to Christian Maturity.
  • Faith - Hebrews 11:1,6
  • Yieldedness - Romans 12:1,2
  • Steadfastness and abounding in God's work - 1 Corinthians 15:58
  • Righteousness - James 5:16
  • The filling of the Holy Spirit - Ephesians 5:18
  • Abiding in Christ and letting His Word control us - John 15:7
  • Thanksgiving in all things - Ephesians 5:20 and 1 Thessalonians 5:18
  • Praying according to God's will as revealed in His Word - 1 John 5:14,15
It's time to open your Bibles to read what has to really say about these things. Remember, we wouldn't know anything if we don't give time to learn. Spare sometime to read the word of God, which is our spiritual food.
