Many people simply don’t know how to pray. We live in a society where people do a lot of talking about God, but it’s very seldom that you find someone who really knows how to talk to God. Then when the challenges of life come, they don’t know how to deal with them. They cry, weep, complain, murmur, get depressed, blame everybody, get angry, and then they get sick. They do everything but remain constant in prayer.
It’s OK to have people pray for you or to ask somebody to agree with you in prayer, but you should also learn how to pray for yourself. Here is how you do that:
Get around people who know how to pray. Get to a church where Spirit-filled and prophetic prayer and intercession are part of the culture. You can learn to pray or be strengthened in prayer when you see others do it.
Study the Word of God. Learn how to pray according to the Word of God. Much of what led me to write my Prayers for Spiritual Battle series came from the Lord leading me to pray the Scriptures as a means of spiritual warfare.
Be filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. If you don’t know anything else, learn how to pray in the Spirit. Pray in tongues. Pray in the Holy Ghost when you don’t know what to pray for. Romans 8:26 says, “Likewise, the Spirit helps us in our weaknesses, for we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.”
