Secrets to Powerful and Effective Prayer

   Bookmark and Share

These are difficult times for many people because we are in a major spiritual transition. God is releasing new strategies to align us with the coming revival. God spoke to me that it is possible to break the power of fear, violence and negativity that rules the world today. The power of God’s love and acceptance is greater! The key is to allow the Lord’s love and light to rule in our own lives.

There is no formula

David Yonggi Cho, a South Korean Christian minister and founder of the largest congregation in the world—Yoido Full Gospel Church—established a major prayer mountain that shifted the spiritual atmosphere over South Korea. When asked about his secret to success he said, “I pray, and I obey.”

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV

This sounds simple, but we often overlook the simple things! There is no proper formula or model to follow to pray effectively. What matters is that you connect with the Lord as you would in a relationship with someone on Earth. It is good to talk with God like a son or daughter to a father.

This past month, I released three blogs and one podcast on how to pray with power. The Lord spoke to me that it is time to prepare people for what is coming. What better way to do that than to release the tips and tools that I have found to work in my own life and ministry?

Here are those blogs and podcast I recently created with some of my proven strategies in them.

How to Get Powerful Breakthrough When You Pray [Episode 57]I give you some of my insider tips and revelation on how you can turn your prayer life around and shift the spiritual atmosphere over any of your problems including the weather, finances and relationships.

Steps to pray more effectively

  1. Get real and open with God. Talk from your heart. Be like a person having a conversation with a father or friend.
  2. Create a list of Bible verses that have meaning for you or that back up your requests to God.
  3. Write down prophetic words and promises that God has given you, especially the ones that have not yet come to pass.
  4. Keep a record of your needs and prayers and the ways God is answering.

Pray continually

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all ircumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV

You can be in constant prayer and interaction with the Lord throughout your day. Use worship songs and Bible verses as prayers to the Lord. Go beyond asking for your needs and pray for those around you and people in your life.

In my recent online workshop, Disarming Difficult Times: Passionate, Positive and Powerful Prayer,  I released a prayer strategy the Lord gave me to effectively stop the violence, shootings and even strange weather patterns. We had such a positive response that we are extending the opportunity to purchase the replay through July 15.

    “When you pray, there is no need to repeat empty phrases, praying like those who don’t know God, for they expect God to hear them because of their many words. There is no need to imitate them, since your Father already knows what you need before you ask him. Pray like this: ‘Our Father, dwelling in the heavenly realms, may the glory of your name be the center on which our lives turn. Manifest your kingdom realm, and cause your every purpose to be fulfilled on earth, just as it is fulfilled in heaven. We acknowledge you as our Provider of all we need each day. Forgive us the wrongs we have done as we ourselves release forgiveness to those who have wronged us. Rescue us every time we face tribulation and set us free from evil. For you are the King who rules with power and glory forever. Amen.’”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:7-13‬ ‭TPT‬‬

    Could anyone help me interpret a dream please. I had a dream yesterday in which I was on a bus. A woman was driving the bus and I happened to be talking to her son on the bus. This son was annoyed with his mother who happened to be the bus driver. He was complaining that his mother believed in a woman’s right to abort. The bus driver/mother appeared to be annoyed I was talking to her son. Eventually we came to a rest stop in the dream and I went into the store to buy food etc. I was late coming out of the dream and saw the bus departing and missed it. Also I was surprised to see I was wearing no shoes in the dream. I have an idea what it represents, but I’d like to hear what others say cause I’m not 100% certain about the interpretation. Thank you and God bless you all in Jesus name.
