The Secret of Effective Prayer

Yes! Another interesting point to note as an Alphasoar. We have previously discussed on important issues that really needed to be addressed as we soar high into the year and also remain on course – soaring to greater heights. We will discuss prayer in this post.Prayer is the act of communicating with God. A moment of talking with God on issues that bother us and on plans that we want to take. Many people see prayer as last option when all other routes taken fail. But no, prayer should be among the plans that we make every day.As we make plans to achieve one thing or the other, practical effort should be made to back it up with prayer.The Practice.The practice of praying had been in existence since time immemorial and has continued to be the only way we can talk effectively to God about our lives. In the Bible, God asked His people to always seek him in everything they do. God has never said he was weary of prayers in this twenty first century; he is still in charge of the happenings in the universe. Has it not amazed you that somebody here is giving birth to a child in Nigeria and at the same time somebody is getting his miracle of healing in Ghana. God is not tired of interruptions, so therefore interrupt him today.The Pattern.Many individuals have resulted to prayer on the last minute and never get a response. This is because the act of communicating with God should be done with a free mind and not with a sorrowful heart. You can look back in your life or ask someone when he got answers to his prayers and you will realize that it had always been when you are on a settled mind, when your spirit is free. On another note, people pray with fear and doubt if God will actually hear and answer their prayers. The result of this is that the individual resorts to praying based on ritual meaningless words.I want to remind you that if you have not put God in that resolutions you made this year, there is need to go back and have a restructure on it. Because my friends and fellow soars, without communicating with God on those issues you would have made those resolutions in vain. There is need for you to pray to God; do prayers when your spirit is free and expect answers.The Purpose.The purpose why you must pray is that you cannot determine your tomorrow despite your projections, therefore there is need to involve God. God is greater than you in all aspect, he is omnipotent and omniscience. The Power.I talked to you about your subconscious mind in this post and how you can work with it to the achievement of greater heights. To disclose the power of prayer, this is what Napoleon Hill wrote after many years of research on how to be successful in life, “The subconscious mind is the intermediary, which translates one’s prayers into terms which Infinite Intelligence can recognize, presents the message, and bring back the answer in the form of definite plan or ideas for procuring the objects of the prayer. Understand this principle, and you will know why mere words read from a prayer book cannot, and will never serve as an agency of communication between the mind of man and Infinite Intelligence.”The subconscious mind here is talking about the state of your mind and the Infinite Intelligence is talking about the one we pray to God. Please read the quote again.This is what my small mind can conceive now about prayer so do me some ‘judgment’ and add more on prayer using the comment box.Happy Soaring!!!


  1. Nice post as always Oga Boss Alphasoar.. You see ehn Boss.. many of us are quick to forget how we get to the little height that we are at.. I mean many see Prayer as something that should be done only when we are in a ghen ghen trouble.. Hence totally forgeRRing about the ALMIGHTY CREATOR at times when things seem all glowy and shinykinda perfect... Thing about life is that GOD is everything.. and he never leaves us.. as he is with us both at the bad times and the good times... So what better way to appreciate him for who He is than to tell him every single thing.. I mean even the nitty grittys of our Happiness and Sadness.. Cause truly yeah.. We are nothing without GOD.. This was nice post sir.. Totally apt. Thanks for sharing... and the crowd goes.. Oooossshhheeey Turn uP! How are you Mr. CEO Alphasoars Inc?!

  2. Yes, He never leaves us. And again we need to appreciate Him for who He is. Hardfact you pointed out here YnC Captain. Many people never understand prayer in its totality, which i think everyone needs to because when we do, we will have God as our friend and confidant. Thanks for your great comment Duru.

    Am good n hope you too are!
