Praying Out Loud To God

Have you ever felt Loss for Words especially when it comes to praying? I know I have especially when I get around my husband. :) He prays so beautifully, he uses the word always. You know most of us women have no trouble communicating. I have seen studies that indicate women speak twice as many words as men. So why do we women sometimes have difficulty praying out loud, particularly in front of others? It would seem that conversing with God often leaves women at a loss for words.

While there is a willingness to pray, some women choose to remain silent allowing the “more eloquent” individuals to address God and of course this sometimes is me. God never values one person "or their prayer" above another. We are, however, given guidelines that guarantee any women’s prayer will be priceless before God. Amen!!

Express your love and appreciation for God’s power Psalm 18:1–6. I begin by thanking God for all things. Make your “conversation” a joyful attitude towards others My loved ones, Let us have love for one another: because love is of God, and everyone who has love is a child of God and has knowledge of God.
He who has no love has no knowledge of God, because God is love.

1 John 4:7–8. A self-righteous attitude stops prayer dead in its tracks! It’s still gossip when you share the “juicy details” with others in the name of prayer. Pray with a compassionate heart and watch God breathe joy into your words.

Trust God to hear every precious word you utter, allowing His peace to envelop you The man whose heart is unmoved you will keep in peace, because his hope is in you.
Let your hope be in the Lord for ever: for the Lord Jah is an unchanging Rock.
Isaiah 26:3–4.

Each prayer comes to life when we speak with assurance, free from worry, having peace that surpasses all human understanding.
We have to remember it’s Not About Me~You, when we understand the importance of attitude, we can focus next on the priority of our prayers. A woman’s prayer often centers upon how a situation relates to us. All emotions "fluctuating hormones" place the emphasis on our need to establish or preserve a relationship. By changing the “primary object” of any prayer, we women can tap into greater prayer effectiveness.

Prayer requires patience as well as surrendering our rights, So do not give up your hope which will be greatly rewarded.
For, having done what was right in God's eyes, you have need of waiting before his word has effect for you.
Hebrews 10:35–36.
As women, it’s easy to become impatient ~~ with family conflicts, broken friendships, job, ~~ even God. “Doesn’t God know how upset I am?
I lack the composure to deal with all this.” Surrender your time~frame to Him, offering your patience as a prayer of trust.

Pray specifically for the person who irritated you the most today. When we extend unmerited kindness to another it transforms two lives, not just yours. I guarantee you, at the end of the day your kind words and thoughts will free you from any “I wish I hadn’t . . .” guilt. Let all bitter, sharp and angry feeling, and noise, and evil words, be put away from you, with all unkind acts;
And be kind to one another, full of pity, having forgiveness for one another, even as God in Christ had forgiveness for you.
Ephesians 4:31-32.

We women utilize our time by multi-tasking. Yet we still struggle to find time to pray. Knowing that God is merciful, we hope that He’ll excuse us “just one more day.” Does this sound familar? Ultimately, we realize that, if we don’t take time to converse with God on a regular basis, our lives unravels quickly illness, finances, separation.
How then should we pray?

Pray faithfully, seeking the Holy Spirit’s help Ephesians 6:18; Romans 8:26. A few words spoken from the heart speak volumes. God is faithful as we depend on Him daily for answers. Choose a place of rest, free of distractions Matthew 11:28–29. Through those tender moments of communication, we experience the gentleness of a Father-daughter relationship. Expect distractions, but practice self-control, remaining steadfast in prayer 1 Peter 1:13; 5:7–8.
When we will to pray . . . God’s will is done!
When we follow these guidelines, our prayers will always be fruitful Galatians 5:22–23. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, a quiet mind, kind acts, well-doing, faith, Gentle behaviour, control over desires: against such there is no law.

I must confess that I usually pray quietly. However in times of deep emotion, I get on my knees and pray outloud. I don't think that I pray that well or I would do it more often. Does that make sense. I think I do a good job with blessings though. Someone even once told me that they were impressed with a blessing that I said.

Denise said...

Thanks for this awesome post.

Nicole said...

Thanks for this outline to our pray life. Love ya!

Susan what an awesome message I will have to come back for more- there is much in here to feed upon. You have given a great message- I have struggled with prayer but growing.

Be blessed

Hey Sharon,
Boy do I relate here today.
I have a sister in Christ that I often speak on the phone with even though we live a great distance apart. Many times we pray for eachother at the end of a call, and she prays sooooooo eloquently. I; on thee other hand, trip all over my tongue and struggle finding the right words. I guess since I'm so aware of it; it seems to worsen? She doesn't seem to mind but... I do. THANKFULLY God knows our hearts and your verse today sure put an added spring in my step!
ALSO, there was something else you shared... about sharing the juicy details at "prayertime." Sometimes I have studies in my home, and this is thee hardest thing to "stop." Getting a bunch of women around sure loosens our tongues. :( I'm going to make a more conscious decision to rebridle my own. THANKS SHARON!

From the Heart said...

Thank you for the award. You are so sweet, kind and loving.

I don't know how I missed this post on prayer. It was a good one and one I needed. I've been following Rachel's post on prayer and she talked about telling people you would pray for them and then somehow forget. One thing she said that stood out to me was that when someone asks you to pray for them either right then (if it's on the phone), or an email, pray right then, or make a journal. I have a folder in my email called Prayer Request and I put emails that request prayer in that and sometimes when I;m praying I can't always remember who is in the folder that needs prayer but God does and I just ask him to meet all their needs.

This is totally different from what you were writing about. I use to be able to pray outloud a lot but as I've gotten older I'm sorry to say I have become lax in that area, but I'm tryig to do better. Sometimes I just don't know what to say especially if I'm praying about a particular need or a friend, but all we need to do is tell God that we don't know what to say and just let the Holy Spirit take over and pray for us.
This was a great post and very timely,
God bless you my friend,
AliceE. :)

Beth in NC said...

Sharon, THANK YOU SO MUCH for the award! What a sweetie you are to think of me! I am excited to receive it.

Love & blessings!

debrah said...

I have been wondering why my prayer life is not the same as it once of the reasons seem to be that I spend less time studying His Word..I am in the word of course..but somehow drifted from studying to reading(mot really focused)...spending(focused) time in the word leads to a rich prayer life.
thank you for another great post.
Be Blessed,
In His Love,

God Chaser said...

Sharon I am always humbled by awards- thank you so very much for considering me. I pray my blog will always minister to someone.
You are such a darling and your ministry touch me deeply. thanks my friend and thanks for opening the door that I can meet and share with others.

blessings to you and again thank you so very much.

There is nothing sweeter than a Praying woman. I have been desiring to be more focused on my prayer time. More intimate with Jesus. More in tune with His desires for my life. I love this post, Sharon.

THanks - You are a blessing,


Edie said...

I remember first learning to pray out loud and how uncomfortable I was. God prompted me to do it anyway and I quickly got over being uncomfortable.

Great thoughts Sharon!

JnL4God said...

I agree with Edie, I was uncomfortable about praying out loud, but now it is great and I am even getting better about praying in groups. Great post Sharon, thank you.

JnL4God said...

And yes faith filled prayers work. Thanks for your prayers for our trip, as you saw we were kept safe even though the weather turned nasty.

Deanna said...

really enjoyed this post about praying. It took me forever to pray outloud in front of others. Now I do and most of the time with out hesitancy, however there are those few times I do get a little anxious if i am asked to pray and I know that their are others in the room who have such a way of making prayer so beautiful and I feel intimidated. I love this encouragement! All prayers from a sincere heart are beautiful no matter the words or the length- a sweet sound in the Lord's ears.

So, nice to meet you. I'll be back :O)

Deanna said...

Praying out loud has been a life long challenge for me. I guess I view my relationship with God as intimate and the conversations we have as intimate that I don't know how to have a more relaxed conversation in public. Does that make sense?

Good post!

Rilda Peel said...

Blessings dear one, long post ^j^ although loved the subject. Prayer gets us to heaven and our faith opens door. I have learned boldness and will ask someone if I may say a prayer over them when they tell me of a need and they usually will allow, but sometimes they just say " That's OK." I honor their wishes. Then I pray for them when I leave them. I suppose it is a personal thing just like our relationship with Our Lord.
Thanks for sharing and many blessings to thee my sister in Christ and friend, rilda *U*

Dorothy Champagne said...

As I read your post, I remember a recent debate some ladies and I had over a sick friend at church. One lady couldn't understand why they were asking everyone possible to pray for a sick member at church. The lady's argument was that each individuals prayer was important - so why were they so emphatic to get as many people as they could to pray about it. I gave the example of Jesus asking all His disciples to pray and Daniel asking all his friends to pray - but didn't have an answer when it came to "why is it important to have the big numbers when praying"? Any takers??

Joyfulsister said...

Amen My Sistah!!
What an awesome post, you have put alot of heart into this and it truly speaks to my spirit.
Yhank you for your prayers and I just wanted to let you know my husband is doing really good, healed from the shingles praise God!.

Luv Ya Lorie

I've recently discovered that the a virus (Infopass.Gamestealer to be specific) has somehow made its way onto my flash drive. It is most likely from a computer I share with the other four hundred or so at my school, but I'm unsure how to remove the virus as Norton (Yes, I realize that it's terrible in terms of virus detection, but it's all I have.) isn't detecting it when I scan the drive. As a result of this virus being on my frequently used flash drive, I've managed to let it drop some malware (Hacktool.Rootkit) onto my personal computer. Norton only ever detects this one when I turn my PC on and never catches it during any of my scans of the computer. Are their any suggestions as to how I can deal with each of them individually, or even both at once? Thank you all for your help! [url=]santoramaa[/url]

I put music from itunes on the really slow home computer onto CDs and want to put those CDs on my laptop.My laptop also has itunes. But the home computer is almost 7 years old. We think it runs so slowly b/c it has so much junk clogging up the hard drive. But it is possible it could have a virus that my parents don't know about. If I put the CDs onto my laptop, could it get infected with a virus? [url=]santoramaa[/url]
