PRAYING RIGHT: Praying For Our Soul

Do you believe that God transforms people's souls in order for them to make new and wiser choices? Do you think there's a need to ask God to make those soul-transformations in your life?

I suggest that we all learn more on how to pray for our souls and the souls of others from the manner the Holy Bible prays for souls. If we do, we will begin to say good prayers, and in the process we could learn more about how God acts.

Below is how I pray for my own soul. You could use these prayers over and over again while praying for yourself or for your family, colleagues, and neighbors.

1. My soul needs an inclination to God and His Word. Without this, nothing can possibly happen in your life that will have value. We must ensure to know God better, understand His Word, and draw closer to Him everyday. Remember the Bible says in Psalm 119:36 that we should incline our hearts to God's testimonies and not to gain.

2. We need to open our hearts that we may get the deepest meaning of God's Word and not just lean on our own understanding. Only God can increase our understanding. In Psalm 119:18, we were made to understand that when we pray, we should open our eyes that we may behold wonderful things from God's law.

3. We need our hearts to be enlightened, and only God can do that for us. The Bible makes us understand that we should pray that the eyes of our hearts may be enlightened (Ephesians 1:18).

4. We could long for our hearts to be united with God. God can bring our hearts wholeness and unity with Him. The Bible makes us aware that when we pray, we could ask God to reunite our heart to fear His name as we walk in His truth.

5. We need to pray that our hearts find satisfaction with God and not with this world. Only God can bring satisfaction to our hearts. The Bible makes us understand that when we pray, we should ask God to satisfy us in the morning with His lovingkindness that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days (Psalm 90:14).

5. What I really want from all this engagement with the Word of God and the work of his Spirit in answer to my prayers is that my heart will be satisfied with God and not with the world. Where does that satisfaction come from? It comes from God. So Psalm 90:14 teaches us to pray, "O satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days."

Only God gives these things to the soul. When Jesus died for us, He removed the wrath of God upon us that God may freely give us everything (Romans 8:32).
