You say your prayers are not getting answers? Nothing seems to happen when you pray? Maybe you are leaving out something very basic, yet very important.
When you pray, do you ever consider what is on God’s mind and what He would like to see done? Or do you simply show up with a shopping list of what you would like to see done? I wonder if we wouldn’t get a lot further a lot faster if we would put the Lord’s agenda first?
This is a great question that deserves a straightforward answer. Allow me to offer some perspectives as to why the practice of prayer is important.
I like to listen to people when they pray. I like to pay particular attention to how they address the Lord. You can tell a lot about a person’s relationship with God by the way they address Him in prayer.
