There are also petitions for family and friends that we can set before the Lord. The prayers that get answered the most effective, are the ones that coincide with the perfect will of the Lord. The will of the Lord is all though the Bible, if you look for it. One example is turning people who have falling in to sin to come back to righteousness. This perfect will righteousness of God begins with you as a Christian and your house. Are you doing righteousness to yourself and to those that are in your own home? Are you doing your best to be at peace with all living in your home? Are you loving them? Are you loving yourself enough to forgive yourself first, for your sins of the past? Do you forgive them of your home of there sin? To be clear I do not say you should stay in a dangers home, but only that you forgive a God forgives.

This is where the work of God begins, is in our homes. It begins first to your own body which God has given to you. This body is also called our temple of the Holy Spirit. This Holy Spirit from God is the third part of three parts of God, which together is all called the trinity. There is more to be said on that, but for now I only want to point out the part of the name Holy, in the Holy Spirit. We are called to be a holy temple for the Holy Spirit to dwell in us. He comes to teach us, and to give us peace, power, and etc. We need to be holy, without wilful sin in our life, so the good gifts and powerful moving of God can flow through us, such as the miracle to heal the sick and raise the dead. So we pray this will of the Father, to be holy and without sin in His eyes. If there is sin, do yourself a great favour and turn away from it quickly and ask that the holy blood of Jesus wash that sin away.

People ask me about fasting and prayer for new believers. I do not discourage fasting, but like Jesus said to those who asked Him about fasting, there is a time for fasting and while Jesus was teaching His disciples, it was not time for them to fast. So what I say is, fast from sin first that lasts forever…now that is harder to do than fasting from food. Fasting from food has its place and needs to be learned in its season. 

As we learn to fast from sin, we grow in love, faith and hope. This faith and hope, this hope is to see good things in our life begin to appear, and bear good fruit. What is this fruit we seek? This fruit looks, more loving, more patient, friendlier, kinder than we once where. This fruit will also bear witness that this growing in love towards God by doing His will of righteousness, and being holy. Growing in Holiness is vary pleasing to him. This fruit is then turned into wine of great joy, just like good wine brings great joy and gladness. Our hope is to become a shining light the can be boldly set on a hill for those around us to see.

So asking the Father in our prayers to help us stay out of sin, is one of the first steps of prayer. This kind of prayer is found in the Lord’s prayer. The Lord’s prayer is jammed full of helpful guidelines for us to pray by. You can read the Lords prayer and how to pray like we should that leads up to the Lords prayer that starts in. Matthew 6.

Matthew 6:6 (KJV)
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth  in secret shall reward thee openly. 

Take Heed How you Pray

There is a reward for us in this life when we pray to God and there is also a reward in the life to come. If we put our prayers before God the Father alone,while in our own closet, God will reward us openly.

This reward from the Father will come in many ways. One way is praying for the sick to get better. If you only pray to please the people around you, there is little chance you will pray for the sick.

The prayers that please people are weak. The prayers that heal the sick or raise the dead are based on a close walk with God the Father in faith. This faith can only grow in the prayers that seek God's will. And His will is also to heal the sick and raise the dead. These prayers are done in the closet, in secret, with the Father and you alone.    

Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV) After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
Pray Our Father
When you pray, say "Our Father" and put your prayer to the Father alone. It was Jesus that said to do it this way, so do it His way and not another way.
Establishing a pillar of prayer can be quite the challenge for a new Christian believer at first. With all Christian principles, the pillars that we learn of the Lord are hard on our will and way. This learning will not stop, but rather, it gets more exciting as we understand more of the Lord’s goodness to us and His patience for all of his people. 

We find in the Holy Bible many topics or subjects in which we can pray about, such as praying for more wisdom and understanding, or to have a heart of love.
