Prayer is communication between you and God.
But – certain seasons require certain types of prayers.
When Jesus was on the mountain top, He had intimate commune with the Lord, most likely engaging in DIALOGUE with The Father; sharing His heart and hearing the heart of God (Luke 6:12).
When Jesus was in the wilderness He spoke the word; He made DECLARATION of the scripture in truth. (Matthew 21:13). Within Isaiah 43:26, God encourages us to pray and do the same.
When Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane, He CRIED out to The Lord in grief and agony while in prayer (Luke 22:42).
And, it is throughout Scripture God reveals the importance of the prayer of thanksgiving. Philippians 4:6 tells us to “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” The Word also tell us that we are to enter into His gates with thanksgiving (Psalm 100:4). In every season, within every type of prayer, we are to have a underlying prayer of thanksgiving.
Pray without ceasing. And pray in The Spirit.
Ask for an infilling of the Holy Ghost. (Luke 11:13). The Holy Spirit revitalizes, rejuvenates and shares revelation.
We have to be engaged with and be in tune with the Holy Spirit while in prayer for, again, prayer is communication, and while you are speaking to The Lord, He desires to speak to you as well.
So whether you are praying by dialoguing, declaring, or crying out to The Lord, remember to always couple your prayer with a prayer of thanksgiving, a-lot time to engage Holy Spirit and always have an ear to hear what The Spirit Of The Lord is says. He desires to commune with you just as your Spirit longs to commune with Him.
In every season, though the type of prayer may vary, pray.
