Teen Devotion on Prayer

Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. – James 5:16 (NLT)

Praying can feel overwhelming at times. You may not feel like you know the right words to say or how to go about praying. Here are a few things to remember when praying.

  1. Anyone Can Pray – It’s good news to know that you don’t have to be a Bible scholar or have a ton of scriptures memorized. You can begin praying right now, where you’re at.
  2. Prayer Is Just Connecting With God – You can connect with God just like you would with friends through a text, Snapchat, or Twitter. Connect with God by telling him your thoughts, feelings, fears, and dreams. Also, let Him know that you love Him and you’re grateful for His help in your life.
  3. Pray The Word – This is freeing, when you realize that you don’t have to always come up with stuff to pray. Use your Bible to help you and pray scriptures out over your life and to help you pray for others too. If you don’t know where to start, use Google to search for Bible verses on the subject you’d like to pray about.
  4. Pray with Authority – You can know that God hears you when you pray and great things will happen when you pray. Today’s Bible verse tells us that when we pray it’s powerful and produces wonderful results.

Praying is an awesome way to connect with God, to thank Him for what He’s done in your life, and to also see results. If your prayers are based on the Bible, you can expect to see powerful results. So make prayer a part of your day today. Spend time reaching out to God and experience the power available to you as you pray.
