Prayers To God – How To Pray Effectively
How to pray effectively when offering prayers to God? It’s real simple. Not a lot of formality is required nor rituals involved. That’s right, God wants to hear from you now. The Bible tells us, “Men ought always to pray!” (Luke 18:1) God wants us to pray always, to tell Him about the things we want and/or need. What’s that you ask? If God is all powerful and He knows what we want and/or need before we ask, why do we have to pray to ask Him for them? Sounds pointless right?
The answer to that question is simple. God gave the human race complete authority in the earth. In fact, the Bible says that God gave our first parents ‘dominion over all the earth’.
“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth” (Genesis 1:26 NKJV)
Because we humans have dominion in the earth, God will not interfere with our free will, or get involved in our lives unless we ask Him to. That’s where prayers to God come in. And because God loves us so much and really does want to be involved in our lives, He has given us prayer as a means by which we can invite Him to get involved in our lives.
