Advanced Ways on How to Fight Against Prayerlessness- Part One

Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 5:17

“Pray without ceasing.” KJV


Hello! I want to impart what I have discovered about combating the lack of prayer. Keep up with me as we discover the following points together.

1- Build Your Faith in God Through His Word:

When you investigate the root of prayerlessness, you’ll find that it has more to do with your faith than it does with your behavior. Prayer, as it turns out, is the language of trust in God’s promises. It involves remembering what He has said about you and confirming what He has said about a specific situation. Building your faith thereby automatically improves your prayer life. But how does one grow in faith? through a close examination of God’s word.

The bible teaches in Romans 10:17- “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” John Calvin in his book, Enjoying Your Prayer Life, called prayer the “chief exercise of faith.” This justifies that when your faith is awake, prayer no longer feels like a burden to you; it becomes natural.

2- Take Out Time and Think of God’s Goodness Over the Years:

Sometimes we forget the wonderful things God has done for us too quickly. We frequently concentrate more on the temper tantrums life throws our way. We no longer remember how fervently we prayed for that business deal or a promotion. When it arrived, we became preoccupied and lost sight of the God who brought it about. When we lose sight of how God’s grace has brought us this far, prayerlessness quickly sets in.

the words of King Solomon in Lamentations 3:21. But I keep thinking of this, so I have hope. You will want to sob in tears when you think of all the goodness that God has bestowed upon you because of how He has made you deserve of it.

3- Focus on the Reward:

We learned from Matthew 6:6 that God rewards those who pray. You might want to inquire as to the reward though. John 6:35 quotes Jesus as saying, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” Every single day, we yearn for and crave joy, peace, and pleasure. But your lack of prayer will be exposed when you pray with the expectation of receiving the reward of no longer experiencing thirst or hunger.

4- Change Your Orientation About Prayer:

I think the reason people don’t pray more is because they think prayer is just a way to talk to God about things, not a way to get closer to him. You will have trouble praying if your perspective on prayer is off. Of course, what else is there to ask if you ask and are given? But dear, it’s not just about requesting and getting; it’s also about forging a close bond with the father. It’s about developing a closer relationship with Him, getting to know His voice, and better comprehending Him when you’re praying.

If you don’t mind, join me as we receive more revelations on how to combat prayerlessness tomorrow as we hope to continue more points.


Dear Lord! Thank you for the revelational word we have received too. May we put all of these to practice, amen.
