At-one time we opened meals with prayer instead of a can opener. 
     Pray for that which you're sure your character can handle! 
     It takes more character to handle prosperity, than it does adversity! 

Why pray? Prayer allows us to see things through God's eyes, and brings His presence into the situation -Philippians 2:5 "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." 1John 3:2 "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be. But we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is." Philippians 1:27 "Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ; that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel." 2Corinthians 8:5 "And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord and unto us by the will of God." 1Corinthians 13:12 "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then shall I know even as also I am known."

Prayer is saturation of the subconscious mind by what's predominant in the conscious mind, and, your subconscious is connected with the Infinite Powerful Intelligent Energy of the universe that we call God, which.(or Who).brings to pass what comes from your subconscious to It.(or Him).
    Prayer is having God's attention by talking about what you want to talk to Him about.(one example).and by listening for answers that well up in the mind, immediately or after; maybe within a few days or weeks, as in Daniel's case, before the angel could get to him with a response from God to his asking -Daniel 10:12-14 "Then said he unto me, fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand and to chasten.(humble so as to correct the self).thyself before thy God, thy words were heard and I am come for thy words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days, but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me and I remained there with the kings of Persia. Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days, for yet the vision is for many days." 

Prayer means in the original 'to wish to the advantage of', 'to bind'.(that is, we set the mind on it as a completed reality -Hebrews 11:1,6), 'a request', 'to want something', 'to be seeking', 'to ask', 'to say', 'to search', 'to fall in with', 'childlike confidence toward', 'to obtain with', 'meet with', 'come together', 'to visit', 'converse', 'intercede'.(Job 42:10).

When we pray for ourselves and/or another, we must realize that 
God, or the Intelligent Infinite, All, Knowing, Ever Present, Universal Energy has given us some of this secrets; secrets to do with laws of the universe He has designed and set in motion; laws we can use to effectively pray; laws like the law of attention and the law of intention.
    The law of intention is that in whatever you do, your intention is placed within it. For example if you painted a painting as Aimée Rousseau Perrine.(www.healingpainting.com).has done, it would have tremendous healing properties. When she was painting one as a gift for a friend who was in hospital, she had such feeling for the person in mind, she said over and over to herself as she was painting it, "I love you", and no doubt, other special words. 
    Paintings and music bypass the conscious mind and get right into the subconscious. It's important to always select high quality in both paintings and music, so they have the greatest and furthest reaching beneficial affect upon your subconscious in that they increase your belief in what is that you want.
    It is claimed that as you view her paintings that because of what she 'put into them', they will heal you. The same is true of rocks. In some countries, what they call 'gratitude rocks' are used; just ordinary rocks, but given with feeling to the individual who is in need of a healing. They do work!
    It was the same in Paul the apostle's time way back when -Acts 19:11,12 "And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul; So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them."
    The power in these things was in the belief of the person who did the painting, sent the rocks or the handkerchiefs. This is because we are all within the same sea of mind. What affects you, does affect others.

When we realize that we too are Gods.(God is a family), we approach prayer differently -Phillipians 2:5,6: Psalms 82:6; John 10:34.
    We now approach prayer from the point of view that we have power bestowed upon us, able to use it in a way that the Father of the family of God does. And what is this way? It is the way of making things become as you would have them be. If one is ill, to get the person well, you have to see the result in your mind as a mental picture, of how it would be to have the person up and about again. If prosperity you want, you have to see a mental picture of just how your life would be with it. It sounds like a hokey trick, but it isn't. It works. In this,.you.are actually calling things into being that are not presently in physical existence. In this we, thanks to God, are also creators. He has designated that we have control over certain of the laws that He set in motion -Romans 4:17 "...God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were." Isaiah 46:10 "Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure." 2Peter 1:3,4 "According as.his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.".Note that it's His power that gives us all things. Think also, that these things 'just doesn't come automatically', otherwise we all would have them now, and we all don't have them now in the physical, otherwise there would be no need to ask for them -Matthew 21:22 "And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing.(accepting as true; and if you were sure that what you have accepted as true is a reality {Matthew 9:29 "... According to your faith be it unto you."}, then you would live in the reality of the finished image of it that you have in your mind), ye shall receive." John 8:32 "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

We pray from what we think – what we are -Ephesians 6:18 "Praying always with all prayer.(make prayer your priority).and supplication  in the Spirit.(praying with feeling).and watching thereunto with all perseverance.(keep your attention on how those in need are doing).and supplication for all saints.(praying earnestly for other's needs)."
    Be moved enough to pray for others. It works!
    The tragedy of our day is not unanswered prayer, but unoffered prayer, but there is an answer to unanswered prayer. Part of that answer is, and the rest of it is..., but here you must understand what righteousness is, and it's probably not at all what most people think that it is.
    Many pray for things, not realizing that in Christ they already have all things -2Peter 1:3; 1Corinthians 2:12. Well, where are they – right? The only thing that precludes these things from us is our heart; what it is we really believe. Christ is able to do exceedingly great things for us...IF... -Ephesians 3:20 "Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us."
    So the key is, the power that works in us, and ensuring that it is kept effective in our hearts. 
    One believing and not backing up with actions, those things showing compassions and concern, things that help others, things that cause the Holy Spirit to flow in us, things that cause us to grow into the likeness of Him.(speaking of character, not personality).is missing much power in his or her life; power to overcome selfishness, power to eradicate bad habits and addictions and power to have a renewed life.
    Prayer builds one up -Jude 1:20.
    It is through prayer that we have access to God the Father, thanks to what Jesus has done -Ephesians 2:18,19 "For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God."
    God will-give you good things; so, get to know Him.(Matthew 7:11; example of Jabez and God's hand upon him--1Chronicles 4:9,10; and Hezekiah), here and now -Hebrews 13:8; Malachi 3:6; so, be sure to ask.....continue?
