1. Sinning and willfully disobeying God's laws
When you come to God in prayer, remember that He is a holy God who does not accept sin.
Don't assume God can't notice your hidden sins because he is aware of your heart's desires. Prior to making any further requests, be sure to ask God for forgiveness. Sin will cause God to turn away from us, making our prayers sound chaotic.
2. Understating the significance of God's word
The following is another item to bear in mind. God is devoted to his word, and he will take great pains to see that it is upheld. If you need healing, remind God of his promises found in the Bible. If you need a favor from God, remind him of his promises found in the Bible. Any prayer that is backed up by God's word is very powerful.
3. Offering the incorrect prayers.
When you pray incorrectly, it simply means that you don't comprehend God's perspective on the situation. A poor prayer does not comport with God's message. Make only positive prayers; nothing bad should come from them.
Make only positive prayers; nothing bad should come from them. It would be unethical, for instance, to pray for your opponents to lose or pass away; instead, ask God to forgive their faults and impart knowledge to them. Allow everything to demonstrate your compassion.
5. Ignoring God's instructions and mission
You can pray more effectively if you know God's will in a particular situation. You can avoid looking for employment when God wants you to launch your own business if you are aware of his plan for the situation.
Make prayer a priority in your life and include it in all of your daily activities. Pray even if you have nothing to ask for and only want to praise and thank God. Don't just pray when you want God to do something.
6. Undervalue the importance of collective prayer.
Group prayer is one of the most crucial elements to include in your prayers. Participating in group prayer improves your inner and spiritual selves.
