1. Start to pray in the morning ?

Lightning over San Francisco Lightning over... Douglas Keister Buy This at I still remember the first time when I was experience  a revival in my prayer life after I had attended a church conference. It was just a 180 degree life change experience for me. Before this conference , I have already been a Christian for more than 15 years in the Evangelical realm. Prayer is just an important issue in my head but never in my heart. Actually prayer was a boring experience for me even I always attend the church prayer meeting in the past years.Why did I feel boring? There were two reasons for this problem? First of all, I have never enjoyed prayer because it was just like talking to a person who will never response in the air.Secondly,my former prayer experience in the church prayer meeting was just like a sitting in a meeting and listen to everybody's prayer one by one for an hour but I was only allowed to pray for three minutes for the whole night. All these have been changed after I experienced by prayer revival. I started to pray for an hour early in the morning when I woke up and worship the Lord at the same time. It was just like a fire within me and also a thirsty that motivated me to meet God in the morning with my morning prayer time. Was I tired ? Yes, I was but within my spirit I could feel the power and energy within me after 1 hour of prayer. The rest of the day was full of positive thinking in my mind and always wanted to praise God on those days.That's the reason why I highly recommended you can start your morning prayer all over again. Actually, there were many Christians in church history who have the similar experience as I did and I am sure I am not the only one who has such an experience in  the world as well.Commit yourself to pray for one hour in the morning and you will certainly experience the fire of prayer within you.

2. Start to improve your prayer habit.

Don't expect you can sit on a chair and pray for one hour because you will fall into sleep especially when you didn't have a good sleep the night before. First of all, stand before God and starting to praise Him with songs. Secondly, change your posture whenever you feel tired from one posture (eg. standing) to another posture (eg. walk around in your own room) and keep on praying out loud (but you don't have to wake up anybody who are still sleeping in your house) and that will keep you awake at all times. You can kneel down whenever you feel like it and you can open your eyes and praise God when you feel like falling into sleep during your morning prayer time.Most important of all is to keep you awake and you are praying.

3. Start to listen to God during the prayer time.

Prayer doesn't mean that you are the one who do the talking all the time because you need to let God speaks to you. God will speak to you by telling you in your mind that turn to certain passages or verse of the Bible. The Holy Spirit can speaks to you through a picture in your mind or a vision as well. Whatever God will say to you, just prepare a notebook and  a pen on your table and get ready to write it down or draw it down first. If you can't understand what it means for the time being, just keep asking the Lord about the meaning and He will let you know in times.The Holy Spirit is a great teacher in teaching you how to pray and get to know His voice.As the Bible says that "I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep. The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger's voice (John 10:1-5)." All you have to do is to getting familiar to His voice just like sheep get to know the voice of the shepherd and relationship and daily encounter with the Lord Jesus are the two main keys on listening to God. on the other hand, the more you obey on God's words, the more you can hear about His voice.

Conclusion :

Your prayer life will be different if you are willing to ask the Holy Spirit to fill in your life. You will also experience the power of prayer in that one hour prayer and worship meeting with God. Once you can act like a child and keep up this prayer habit everyday. You will see a major breakthrough in your prayer life. Once you will enjoy prayer and really see God will speaks to you in a way that you are the only one who will gets it, you will start to enjoy your prayer life and you will hear God's voice often.
