The Guiding Principles

Remember the primary purpose of prayer (talking, communicating with God) is “fellowship”.  Constant and open communication are essential in maintaining a healthy and viable relationship.  In the course of your fellowship you also have been given the privilege to present specific needs to God (Philippians 4:6).  In essence, you are approaching the only true and living God, in whom you believe has the power to meet your needs, or grant your requests. You come to Him in confidence because He has already granted you access to the Throne of Grace  (Hebrews 4:16).  Never forget that God desires to talk to you.

When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. He gave them instructions, and said to pray in this manner (way).  In other words, He gave a model to use; a pattern to follow when praying.  He gave them prayer principles.  (Matthew 6:7-13).

These are coaching principles to guide you on your way to a powerful prayer life.  These guidelines may also be referred to as the “blueprint” for developing a consistent prayer life.    The principles below apply to whatever need, or requests you may have.  Your needs vary; however, the greatest need we all have is a strong and secure relationship with the Father through faith in Jesus Christ.  Therefore, the key element in following these principles is self-discipline—coaching, motivating and encouraging you to become disciplined in your prayer life.
