Steps for a Balanced Prayer:
1. Praise – Praises bring God into your prayer. Matt.6:9, PS 63:3, Heb. 13:15, Ps. 22:3.
Our Father in heaven, Hollowed be Your Name, because You’re loving-kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You. Therefore, by Him, let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God. This is the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. You are Holy Enthroned in the praises of Israel.
2. Waiting – Just hold still. Is. 40:31, Is. 26:3.
However, those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary and they shall walk and not become faint. The Lord will keep you in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Him. Because you trust in the Lord.
3. Confession – Your sins, your un-forgiveness. 1 John 1:9, Ps 66:18, Num. 23:19, Ps 139:23-24.
If we confess our sin, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and to clears us from all unrighteousness. If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear. God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said and will He not do? Or has He spoken and will He not make it good?
Search me, O God and know my heart; try me and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.
God Bless you
