Effectual fervent prayer

Praying for other people is an act of love. We pray for others be-cause we care what happens to them, and we know that God cares. This form of prayer is known as intercession.
Effectual fervent prayer will enrich your faith and make you grow spiritually mature in the Lord, prayer is the vital key that connects us with our heavenly father, Biblical prayer is pouring our soul be-fore God
Prayer is both private and public.

prayer for individual personal needs and corporate prayer for the needs of others
Prayer is a command of obedience and discipline
Jesus said when you Pray enter the secret enclosure
The power of prayer set Peter free from prison
The power of prayer is based on the word of God
Boldness and Persistence of prayer will Pay.
How did Jesus pray?
Jesus prayed regularly
Jesus prayed alone.

There is nothing more glorious than conformity to the example of Christ, he engages in the work without ceasing, and the more we abide in him the more we will grow in the likeness of him. The power of prayer in a Christian life cannot be underestimated, it will leave a deep impression upon us when we study the teaching of our Lord in regards to prayer. Because there are so many examples of prayers that Jesus taught us we are only going to use selected ones for the purpose of our studies.
When you pray alone.

And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. Mark 1:35
And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening came, he was there alone. Matthew 14:23
And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. Luke 6:12
And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold,
Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fails not: and when thou art
converted, strengthen thy brethren. Luke 22:32

And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast and kneeled
down, and prayed,
Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me:
nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be done.
And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening
And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly:
and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down
to the ground.
And when he rose up from prayer and came to his
disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow, Luke 22:14-45
Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know
not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
|Luke 23:34

Receive this word into your heart and hold it fast as the voice of your
Father: on your use of the word of God will your spiritual life
depend. Let the word of God be precious above everything
Therefore, shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in
your soul?’ Deuteronomy. 11:18
