Summary: We must pray Gods way to get an answer.
SEVEN WAYS TO PRAY TO GET ANSWERS
Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows.
The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.
1. Pray to the father.
John 16: 23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
2. Pray in the name of Jesus.
John 14: 12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
3.By the Holy Spirit.
Romans 8: 26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
4.With full understanding of rights and privileges.
1st Cor.14: 14 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.
15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
5. In harmony with the word.
John 15: 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
6. In faith no doubting.
John 15: 16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
7. With praise for our answer.
Philippians 4: 5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
