“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6
The heart of a learner. As a student of God's Word, it's important to have communication with the Teacher. That’s why prayer must be central in your daily time to review Scripture in order to pass it on to others. God desires this time in prayer to show you not only how this lesson applies to your own life, but how you can most effectively share it with those around you.
The best way to learn how to pray… is to pray. This sounds overly-simple. There are many prayer formulas and books on prayer available, but simply praying--having a conversation with God--is the best way begin. As you pray, you will begin to see how God answers prayer through actions, attitudes and circumstances in everyday life. This will give you greater insight into how to pray. So the experience of prayer itself becomes the prayer-teacher.
Pray a Scripture. God will always act in a manner consistent with His Word. He will always do what the Bible says He will do. One great way to begin your prayer time each week is to choose a key scripture from the message or lesson, and to pray that verse the entire week.
Write down the verse(s) on an index card and put it on your bathroom mirror, your car dashboard, or your computer monitor at work. Use it as a reminder not only of what you are learning, but of what you can be teaching to others.
