Prayer is a time to ask God for what you need

Hi ladies.Can you please teach me how to pray?This is one of the most common questions we get from fellow Christians.Everyone wants to know how to pray and what to pray about? Simple right? NOPE.We all know that life is full of troubles. We all struggle with daily issues and concerns about our health, safety, family,finances,work,relationships,spiritual lives etc. In light of that, what should we do? The Answer: Pray!When you go into your prayer closet, you know where that it is,for me it’s anywhere and everywhere because I live by 1 Thessalonians 5:17,Pray without ceasing, whenever I feel like praying,I pray. When you are in your quiet time in your prayer closet, tell God and tell Him what you need. So what is prayer?It's a time to tell God your needs which is also known as a prayer of petition. A prayer of petition is a prayer making our request or requests known to God for a particular need or needs. So when we come to God in petition we are asking him to do something either for ourselves or others. The Bible is clear that God wants us to tell Him what we need. God often encourages us to come to Him for whatever we need in His Holy Word whether it is big or small (e.g., Phil. 4:6). 1 John 5:14 guides us to pray for things that are in accordance with His will, and His Word is where we find His will.
