What Does the Bible Say About Prayer?

Prayer is not a mysterious practice reserved only for clergy and the religiously devout. Prayer is simply communicating with God—listening and talking to him. Believers can pray from the heart, freely, spontaneously, and in their own words. If prayer is a difficult area for you, learn these basics principles of prayer and how to apply them in your life.

What is the Correct Posture for Prayer?There is no correct or certain posture for prayer. In the Bible people prayed on their knees (1 Kings 8:54), bowing (Exodus 4:31), on their faces before God (2 Chronicles 20:18; Matthew 26:39), and standing (1 Kings 8:22). You may pray with your eyes opened or closed, quietly or out loud—however you are most comfortable and least distracted.
Luke 18:1-7 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;వారు విసుకక నిత్యము ప్రార్థన చేయుచుండవలె ననుటకు ఆయన వారితో ఈ ఉపమానము చెప్పెను

Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:.దేవునికి భయపడకయు మనుష్యులను లక్ష్య పెట్టకయు నుండు ఒక న్యాయాధిపతి యొక పట్టణ ములో ఉండెను.And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.ఆ పట్టణములో ఒక విధవరాలును ఉండెను. ఆమె అతని యొద్దకు తరచుగావచ్చినా ప్రతివాదికిని నాకును న్యాయము తీర్చుమని అడుగుచు వచ్చెను గాని And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;అతడు కొంతకాలము ఒప్పకపోయెను. తరువాత అతడు-నేను దేవునికి భయపడకయు మనుష్యులను లక్ష్యపెట్టకయు ఉండినను Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. ఈ విధవరాలు నన్ను తొందరపెట్టుచున్నది గనుక ఆమె మాటి మాటికి వచ్చి గోజాడకుండునట్లు ఆమెకు న్యాయము తీర్తునని తనలోతాననుకొనెను. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. మరియు ప్రభువిట్లనెను అన్యాయస్థుడైన ఆ న్యాయాధి పతి చెప్పిన మాట వినుడి. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? దేవుడు తాను ఏర్పరచుకొనిన వారు దివారాత్రులు తన్నుగూర్చి మొఱ్ఱపెట్టుకొను చుండగా వారికి న్యాయము తీర్చడా?

The Lord Jesus is not at all saying that God is like this unjust judge. His meaning is that if even an unjust judge will give in to repeated requests for justice, how much more will the just and rightious judge of the world bring about justice for His people who pray persistently, continually (and remember that this just judge is also a loving and compassionate Father).
ofcourse this does not mean that His people can demand anything they want, wheather good for them or not, and get it if they keep on asking.
But if they ask for good and right and just things, or anything according to His will they will get it.(I John 5:13-14 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. ఆయననుబట్టి మనకు కలిగిన ధైర్యమేదనగా, ఆయన చిత్తానుసారముగా మన మేది అడిగినను ఆయన మన మనవి ఆలకించుననునదియే.

And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: మనమేమి అడిగినను ఆయన మన మనవి ఆలంకించునని మన మెరిగినయెడల మనమాయనను వేడుకొనినవి మనకు కలిగిన వని యెరుగుదుము.
