Prayer is the way we communicate with God.  Is the platform where we ask God to fullfil our needs.  Is how we claim God to set us free from our enemies.  Today, I want to share with you 3 of my favorite verses about prayer.  This verses guide us to be more effective in prayer.  Let’s see!

3 verses about prayer you should know

1. Matthew 6:9-13 says:

“Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.  Your kingdom come, Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.  ‘Give us this day our daily bread. ‘And forgive us our debts, as we have forgiven our debtors letting go of both the wrong and the resentment.  ‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.]’

In this verse we can see how Jesus taught his disciples about how to pray.  This is an example for us too!  We learn from this that we don’t only express our feelings and needs in our prayers, but that we must pray asking for the will of God to be manifested in our lives.

Prayer, receive and faith (Bible Journaling by Tayrina Gonzalez)

2. Matthew 21:22 says:

And whatever you ask for in prayer, believing, you will receive.

3. Mark 11:24 says:

 For this reason I am telling you, whatever things you ask for in prayer [in accordance with God’s will], believe [with confident trust] that you have received them, and they will be given to you.

This lead us to ask ourselves, what are the true motives of our prayer? Are we praying following our own desires or are we looking for the will of God? – We must pray asking for the will of God to be revealed and manifested to us.  Including, praying believing that the purpose of God will be completed in us.

We must pray in accordance to God’s will and purpose.  These 3 verses give us a correct view and focus about how we should pray.  God takes care of us and knows every need we have, let’s take our time to pray for God’s will to be done in earth as it is in heaven.

  1. Tayrina,
    So glad to come upon your blog at the link up. These are wonderful verses to know and memorize about prayer. What a gift we have that we can go to our Heavenly Father with anything in prayer and even when we have trouble believing, He gives us that ability too. I love that you worship God through dance. I was a dancer and my adult daughter teaches dance at a Middle School here in NC. David danced before the Lord, so why shouldn’t we??
    Blessings,

  2. I have been doing a Bible study on prayer recently, and love the verses you’ve highlighted here. It is so important to be surrendered to God’s will as we pray, and to trust that He will always answer in a way that is best for us.
