Response to What is prayer, what does it mean for it to "work"?
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [do]: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. GOD IS NOT DEAF AND WHEN HE GIVES ME THE DESIRE/PERSON/SITUTATION TO PRAY ABOUT BECAUSE IM GIVEN TO SEE THE NEED, THEN WITH FAITH I PRAY.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them]. GOD GIVES THE DESIRE!
What is it then? I will pray with the spirit*, and I will pray with the understanding*...
Brethren, pray for us.
Pray for us: for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly.
Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
yes your worst enemy is your own mind but stay on the understanding of the Lord and dont be shaken from believing what you have requested of/from the Lord. God will give you light on how to proceed. There is times I don't know which way to go on a decision but even that i mention to the Lord. Its a marvel when one knows that God has heard and then proceed to staying with Him with much thanksgiving.
For example: we needed a place to live in. I constantly asked the Lord about it with thanksgiving and one day the Lord interupted my prayer and said: Dont ask me no more, thank me! So i did and within 8 months we bought this place........
