In Ephesians chapter 6, verse 18, the Apostle Peter encourages us: “With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints.”

When it comes to setting time to pray to God most of us have trained ourselves to do that. However to get to a deeper more mature level in Jesus Christ, we need to move a step further into praying all day. This is what helps us to remain centered on Jesus Christ, and hear Him throughout the day.

What we must learn to understand is that prayer is a very dynamic gift from God. It incorporates many different types and ways of communicating with God. That is why the bible reminds us in Romans 8:26, “In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.”

So we must not limit our prayer to one type or way, it can be done through singing, dancing, speaking the word, meditation on the word or even painting.

One of the techniques we can use to help us pray all day is to use arrow prayers. These are single words or sentences. An example is praying, “God help me.” If we keep at it, we will notice a tremendous change in our prayer lives and attitudes, especially in the area of seeing answers to prayer
