4 Prayer Habits That Will Transform Your Prayer Life

4. Expect God to move

Faith-filled prayers expect that God is going to respond.

Pray for yourself, your needs, and the needs of those around you, and then don’t forget that you prayed.

Prayer is not an annual wish-list to Santa Claus. God calls us to pray without ceasing. Pray and ask, and then watch. Wait. Trust that God is going to move, and then watch for His hand to intervene.
Bold prayers are marked by close communion with God.

They are intentional, specific, Spirit-driven, and faith-filled. If your life lacks the spiritual fervor for which you long, begin with your prayer life.

Pray fervently for the salvation of your loved ones, the healing of those who are ill, restored relationships, children who love the Lord, and more. You won’t live more boldly than you pray.
