Prayer is Intentional

Prayer is not just talking to God or just communicating to God. Prayer is a definite message with words to God based on what the Spirit is praying. See Romans 8:26 where the “Spirit helps” us pray with words.

Our talking may or may not be the Spirit’s words. Communication indicates a two way communication, but when God speaks to us the Bible does not call this prayer, the Bible calls this illumination or revelation.

So in prayer, try to listen to God’s speaking to know how to pray.  And yes, this is hard to do.
