Pray It Like You Mean It

 

How do I need to pray?  Boldly and confidently:  “Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭AMP‬‬

 

When do I need to pray?  All the time:  “Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly];”
‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:17‬ ‭AMP‬‬

“Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:18‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Why do I need to pray?  For answers and solutions to all situations and problems, for healing/deliverance, protection/covering:  “Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].”
‭‭James‬ ‭5:16‬ ‭AMP‬‬
