Seven Attitudes in Prayer – Making Our Prayers Effective
The Catholic Church in England and Wales (CfW) claims that the more we pray with these attitudes, the more effective our prayers will be.
Let us pray in the confidence that God knows what we need better than we do (Matthew 6:8, Romans 8:26, 2Corinthians 12:7-10), and that He will provide for us as we know how to care for ourselves (Matthew 6:8, Romans 8:26, 2Corinthians 12:7-10).
Let us believe what they say and pray without doubt, because we know that God’s word has power over all things, and that thanksgiving prayer is a powerful weapon in God’s power to change human willings into good works.
The message is that we should always pray and not give up hope in the face of adversity, as Jesus says in the New Testament, “keep on seeking, keep on seeking” (Matthew 7:7-8) and “pray and seek God” (Luke 18:1-8; Acts 16:23-25).
4 Right Motives
“You ask and do not receive because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures,” James 4:1-3 says. “And they were not wrong to ask, but their asking was wrongly motivated.” Mark 10:35-37 says, “And they were not wrong to ask, but their asking was wrongly motivated.”
5 Harmony with God’s Will
We can have confidence in the answer when the Bible clearly reveals God’s will, such as when we repent of sin and ask forgiveness (1John 1-9, Acts 8:18-24, Isaiah 1:15-20, Psalms 51:1-17).
6 Desire to Obey
Only when we show ourselves willing and eager to keep God’s commandments and do the things that please God (1John 3:22) do we receive from God what we ask (James 5:16). Only “the prayer of a righteous man is powerful” (James 5-16).
God isn’t interested in whiners (Daniel 2:23, Hebrews 13:15, Colossians 4:2, Ephesians 5:20), so we should make all of our requests to God with thanksgiving (Philippians 4-6).
