It has been many years ago, early one morning I was praying and the Lord spoke to my heart and said this; I am going to teach you to pray spirit led prayers. Frankly, at the time I had never heard such a thing, but it caught my attention. And I begin to study along those lines. I found that many times we pray off the top of our head or we pray what we think would be God’s will for a person or situation or we pray what we have always prayed. When what we should do is go to God and seek Him for the way to pray about every situation. Jesus said ‘I only do what I see the Father do and I only say what I hear the Father say.’
This will take time and effort but you will begin to see a difference in the results of your prayers. When you pray in direct line with God’s will, your prayer life will produce much fruit, just like Jesus’ did. James 5:16 says the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. That is exactly what happens when you begin to consult God and His word concerning your prayers.
