Prayer, is not just asking God for what we want; but seeking God

We then can ask for the needs, and desires of our heart, being mindful that God knows what we need even before we ask him. We must always have an attitude thanksgiving, and seek forgiveness when praying, asking God to forgive us for all of our sins and shortcomings, sins of commission and omission.

We must ask God to keep us from temptation, to protect us and bring deliverance from all of the forces of evil, and darkness of the devil himself, and the enemy that may be working on his behalf.

Always close prayer by giving God the honor and glory due unto his Holy and Righteous name, and His Kingdom  Heaven above.
