how to pray

here are 9 suggestions from John Piper regarding how to pray.

Here are the first three to get you going, but go to Desiring God for the other six.

Here are some ways to pray for yourself so that you’re praying in sync with the way God works.

1. For the desire of my heart to be toward God and his Word.

Incline my heart to Your testimonies and not to gain. (Psalm 119:36)

2. For the eyes of my heart to be opened.

Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from Your law. (Psalm 119:18)

3. For my heart to be enlightened with these “wonders.”

[I pray] that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened. (Ephesians 1:18)

really good stuff. hat tip to Ramblin’ Pastor Man.
