Some folks don't understand why they're praying and there seems to be no answers. They're so used to praying without answers that they now lack the confidence to pray. You can pray a whole lifetime without praying the right way, but that's not what God wants for you. You should have results every time you pray. He asked us to pray because He wants to answer our prayers; but we must pray correctly.
In the New Testament, we pray in the Name of Jesus. We don't ask Jesus for anything; we don't pray to Him. You can tell Him how much you love Him, and give thanks to the Father, in His Name, but we don't pray to Jesus, in the Name of Jesus; that'll be wrong. When we pray, we stand in the place of the Master; we're taking His place. So, we can't be praying to Him in His Name, or while standing in His stead; that won't make any spiritual sense. ~ Pastor Chris Oyakhilome.
