3 Helpful Ways on How to Pray so God Will Listen
Prayer is a way for us Christians to maintain a proper relationship with God; however, we often do not quiet our hearts before the Lord and do not use our hearts to pray to Him; we are cheating the Lord if we do not pray to Him with a sincere heart.
Most of the time, we are praying to God honestly, but we are frequently making demands of Him; this type of prayer is a bargain with God, and it contains no true faith or true love for God. The more we pray in this way, the further we stray from God.
When we pray to God every day, we must remember that God is the Creator and that we are under His sovereignty; second, we must stand in the place of a creation of God, making no demands of Him, and having a submissive heart, so that we can receive the Holy Spirit’s work and enjoy God’s presence. Since the Holy Spirit’s work is not present in the church, we must seek and pray.
