How to pray


The longer we pray, the deeper we can plunge into the spiritual realm and live in it. A huge number of Christians are not able to pray longer than 10-15 minutes. Such Christians cannot even imagine how to pray for half an hour, an hour or three hours. But if we discipline ourselves, we can pray for long hours. Personally, I really want all Christians to be able to pray long and deep. When I was a Christian baby, I also could not pray longer. However, as my Christian faith grew during my ministry, I experienced deep and long periods of prayer and realized the extraordinary importance of prayer.

Thanks to constant discipline, I gained the ability to pray longer, my prayer life became deeper. By the time our church was organized in 1958, I was used to praying about five hours a day. This included an early morning prayer, a time of personal prayer in the morning, prayer in the afternoon, and my evening prayer time. It seemed that I prayed incessantly. Today, I also pray at least one to three hours a day and give God all glory for it.

If I had not prayed so much, I would not have been able to receive enough spiritual strength to serve people. Through prayer, the Lord fills me with power, and so I can continue my ministry. I really hope that all believing Christians will pray more efficiently and spend more time in deep prayer.

How can a Christian pray in the way he should do it? To pray deeply and more effectively over long periods of prayer, as we wish, we must try to learn many ways of prayer. We need to study these methods well and plan our prayers with care. If we do not pray in accordance with this plan, we will never be able to learn how to pray the way we want it.

By sharing some examples from my personal prayer life, I would like to help you build your own prayer life that is deep, effective, and satisfying.
