As a follow up on how to pray in the previous discussion, I want to tell you that God the Father and the Son has already showered us with His grace and peace. We need to take ownership of this grace and peace, making it ours everyday of our lives. Be thankful to Him everyday of your life for showering you with His gift. We don't have a narrow place for His affection but our own bowel (inward part) is restricted by ourselves for not owning His love and grace. We need to request the Holy Spirit to open our "seat of affection" (bowel) to enable us to live life in abundance as was His intend.
When we pray for something to happen in our life, we need to make that request with joy in our heart - even if it's something that isn't nice to you, e.g. forgiveness. Although praying is not classed as part of the armour, it's an additional and important part that needs to be done on a continual basis with incessant pleadings until your prayer is answered. Together with the supplication in the Spirit, prayer and the Christian armour our requests will be fruitful. Always intent upon your object in prayer. Without these three, your request will be ineffectual.
