Using a Prayer List

Building a dynamic prayer life is a rewarding aspect of your spiritual life. You are what you pray and you shape who you will become based on how you pray. A prayer list will help you organize you prayer life so you can pray effectively. What you pray is what you become: A good prayer list can help you pray in a way that you gain God's heart for your life. As you meet with God in prayer, He begins to transform you and motivate you towards Kingdom visions and purposes. "Thy Kingdom come" + "Thy will be done" in my life A prayer list will help you map your life and allow you to begin to see God change you through prayer. Begin to connect Kingdom priorities, Heart Attitudes, personal development and needs of self and others in prayer. A prayer list uses the Lord's Prayer as a framework that gives direction and purpose to your prayer life. God can use the prayer list to help you see how people, places and things that you are praying for fit into the larger picture of God's plans. The prayer list is always in process, just as we are. It is organic. It should be growing and changing around how God is growing and changing you. Like a carpenters tool, your prayer list must be sharpened continually to be useful. Your prayer list will need to be adjusted as you and your life changes. As God changes your heart, passions and calling the format of your list should change as well.
