Different types of prayer (2)

September 20, 2015

“Pray…with all [manner of] prayer.”

Eph 6:18 AMP

Here are three more types of prayer: (1) The prayer of petition. You must learn to be confident in asking God to meet your needs. Jesus promised, “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” (Mk 11:24). If we’d stop trying to impress God, we’d be a lot better off. Length, loudness, or eloquence isn’t the issue; it’s the sincerity of our heart, the faith that’s in our heart, and the assurance that we’re praying according to God’s will that gets results. (2) The prayer of agreement. Jesus said, “If two of you…agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father” (Mt 18:19 NIV). When you’re up against something too big to handle alone, find a prayer partner and get into agreement with them. This isn’t for people who constantly live in strife, then decide to agree because they’re desperate. God honors the prayers of those who pay the price to live together in harmony (See Ps 133:1). (3) The prayer of thanksgiving. When your prayers outnumber your praises, it says something about your character. Self-centered people ask, but rarely appreciate. God won’t release us into the fullness of all He has planned for us, until we become thankful for what we’ve already received. Petition avails much; praise avails much more! “In everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (Php 4:6 NIV). Powerful living comes through thanksgiving. We can literally “pray without ceasing” (1Th 5:17) by being thankful all day long, praising God for His favor, mercy, loving kindness, grace, longsuffering, and goodness.
