A believer is only as strong as his or her prayer life, a prayer-less believer is a powerless one.
Equally to be effective in prayer we MUST! be rooted in his word, it is truly disturbing how little time Christians spend reading and studying the Word, all effective pray must be rooted in biblical revelation.
Lastly and most importantly, we are to pray in the Spirit, meaning all prayer should be birthed out of our relationship with the Holy Spirit,
He is the only worship leader, He is the only prayer leader, the only healer, the only counselor and comforter, abide and fellowship with Him!
