Davidisms - Practice 3-Word Prayers

Prayer. It’s the only thing Jesus’s disciples asked him to teach them. How to pray. They connected his prayer life with his power. Prayer. Throughout Scripture, we’re commanded to pray (Matt. 7:7-11; Luke 18:1-8, etc.). Jesus said, “When you pray, not if you pray. He assumed his followers would pray. But a lot of us don’t. Or if we do pray, it’s not very often. Or it’s by rote. Or maybe we don’t fully believe in prayer’s power. But Jesus never intended for prayer to be intimidating. He simply wants us to come to him in prayer. Let me try to help you pray more often and better. Here’s an easy way to begin: Practice 3-word prayers. Condense your needs, wants, desires, and concerns into 3 words. Heal my hip. Need new job. Calm my heart. Release this addiction. Pray for others. Save my child. Give her strength. Make him wise. Deliver from evil. Help her heal. You get the picture. Pray your 3-word prayers repeatedly. Throughout your day. Over and over again. Whatever you’re doing, or wherever you may be, you can pray. And when you do so, you are truly “praying without ceasing” (1 Thes. 5:16-18). Practice 3-word prayers. You’ll experience the power of prayer as never before.
