Prayer is so much more than “talking to God” or asking Him to supply our needs. As you will see in the following acrostic using the word PRAYER, making petitions, or pleading with God for His help, is a part of prayer. Go deeper. What is behind our pleas? Are we merely desperate or does it demonstrate a real trust in God? Remember Jesus’ words, “whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mk. 11:24). God wants prayer to be about trusting Him to be our Helper.
For each word in this acrostic about prayer, go deeper. Think about what qualifies God to be the One to whom you turn in prayer in these ways.
