Sometimes praying feels like throwing darts - with your eyes closed. You hurl some words heavenward and wonder if you've hit the bulls-eye of progress. You hope something sticks.
What have you been praying for? Do you wonder if God hears your prayers? If they matter?
Lately, I've been thinking, I don't want my words to just touch heaven, but I want them to move heaven's power on my behalf. I want God to touch even the smallest details of my life and the lives of those I love.
Do you desire the same?
I've been wondering how to be effective in prayer.
If ever there was a prayer warrior, it was Paul. If there ever was a man who moved the needle of this world (besides Jesus) - it was Paul. And, if there was ever a man who prayed with power - it was Paul.
What would happen if we prayed like Paul?
God got me asking this question. So, I searched every prayer Paul prayed (below) to find the essence of God's power held within his words. What I found were 12 categories of prayer. I hope they bless you as much as they did me!
