As read in the book of Esther 4:16, Queen Esther prayed by herself (interceded) and yet, ask others to pray with her. Our individual or corporate prayers should be connected to God and this is highly influenced by our lifestyles.
Your lifestyle, mindset and purpose of praying determines the outcome of your prayers. Here's a question to think about: Is your prayers Kingdom centred or for selfish reasons?
However, prayer is everything except:
At some point in life, we might experience difficulty despite praying. It could be that God wants us to learn from that undesirable hardship. In such an ugly situation, the Word of God consoles us whenever we pray to Him.
In conclusion, prayer is not an experience. Prayer is a Lifestyle. We must all embrace this great lifestyle of Prayer. Amen.
