What are your favorite prayers? Those that work the best? I am a practical person and I like to use the prayers that get the best results. I like short prayers, a few lines or less, because then I can remember them and use them easily, even when I am at work or going to sleep.

So....what are your favorite prayers that work the best for you, those that have the most power, and get the best results?

Here are some of my current favorites: "Thy will be done" or "Thy will not mine be done." And "Heaven on earth is mine, here and now." And also "Make me an instrument of thy peace."

Thank you and blessings...

I don't have "set" prayers, they are all different. I think the best prayers are the ones that come from your heart in your own words as you talk to God.

I agree with ILNC,prayers should come from the heart. I feel that going in to a quiet room of the house closing your eyes and bowing down before God is the best way to pray,because there are no outside disturbances. As far as results from prayers,God will answer your prayers in His time,He knows what you need and when it is best suited for you.

I don't use any set prayers, I just pray when the need hits me. I don't rehearse or memorize anything I want to talk to God about..IMO all prayers work for God if they are straight from your own heart..He knows you best and recognizes your needs before you do..

I like that part....and I have always liked hearing that where I pray from is more important than who or what I pray to.

I also agree that "before I ask it is already done" in that a loving god knows my every wish. But it is important what I choose to speak and say in prayer, because it is an act that focuses my attention and my intention. And that the act of my approaching a loving god shows my willingness to actively be in that relationship, not just passively sitting around waiting for "god's will" to happen. I have to show up for my own life too.

When the SPIRIT leads me, I pray as HE LEADS. NO SET PRAYERS as others have said. Worshipping HIM in SPIRIT and TRUTH.

I ALWAYS USE SCRIPTURE : to bring RECALL to the LORD of what HE HAS TO SAY ABOUT a situation in HIS PROMISES FOR ME AND MINE.

AND, the Lord did tell us when we pray to pray like this: Our Father which is in heaven.......and that's always a great prayer.

Another favorite is that of : Binding and Loosing. God said HE GAVE us the "KEYS" (just think of that) to the KINGDOM of HEAVEN, in this manner of spiritual warfare and prayer.

Another is praying specially for GOD'S KINGDOM TO COME (also in the Lord's prayer) on earth today in my life and those I pray for as it is IN HEAVEN this very moment....as HE SEE'S IT. AS it is or would be in HIS KINGDOM.

These are favorites of mine and I pray according to the situation and how the SPIRIT leads me at that moment in the situation. Then I know I'm praying in GOD'S WILL..........not MINE BE DONE !
