Sometimes praying feels like throwing darts - with your eyes closed. You hurl some words heavenward and wonder if you've hit the bulls-eye of progress. You hope something sticks.
Lately, I've been thinking, I don't want my words to just touch heaven, but I want them to move heaven's power on my behalf. I want to pray knowing, all I am - needs all of Him . I want - what I throw up, to fall back down with such strength - God's fingerprints, clearly, handled my every word. Even more, I want the Lord's will to fall on earth, not because I am good (far from it), but because He is good, all good. And, more than enough.
What would happen if we prayed like Paul? God got me asking this question. So, I searched every prayer Paul prayed (below) to find the essence of God's power held within his words. What I found were 12 categories of prayer. I hope they bless you as much as they did me!*(Image Credit:Thinkstock)
