Pray God’s Way

 
 

Pray God’s Way
By Tom D Blakely
~

To pray is good, but how we pray
defines our worth in Christ.
Prayer must be more than rhyming off
a tiresome daily list.
God won’t accept a monologue
for that is all this is.
Remember Jesus and His prayers
for His were not like this.

When we are truly born again
God’s Spirit in us dwells,
the Spirit’s language is God’s Word
God’s Word in prayer prevails.
We need to know the Word of God
all that the Bible says,
that when we come to God in prayer
we pray His way, not ours.

Be reverent to God’s holy name
and pray His will be done.
Be bold to claim His promises
and make His will our own.
God answers when we use His Word
and blesses us in prayer.
This is the language of our God
of promise and of power!

“And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do.
For they think that they will be heard for their many words.”
[Matthew 6:7]
