A Prayer for Prayer

Each week I would like to share a scripture based prayer. This first week, I thought it would be appropriate for the topic of my prayer to be on prayer itself.

Lord,

Your eyes are on me and you listen to my prayers (1 Peter 3:12). I will praise you when I am cheerful (James 5:13). I will give thanks to you often (Colossians 4:2). I will come to you in times of need and trouble (Psalm 142:1-2). I know that you will help me when I call out to you in distress (Psalm 107:19). If I keep asking, it will be given. If I keep searching, it will be found (Luke 11:9-10).

Please, help me to make my supplication with the right motivations (James 4:3). Thank you for giving me the Holy Spirit to intercede for me when I do not know what to pray for as I should (Romans 8:26). Cast away my doubt so that I may believe that I can move mountains through you (Matthew 21:21).

Amen
