Method for Prayer [Pray the Bible] by Matthew Henry is a wonderful Christian resource I have used before. If you ever get “stuck” with how to structure your prayers to the Lord Almighty, this site may be of interest to you.

The Method for Prayer site explains:

Resorting to a more scriptural pattern of prayer may be a simple (but profound) answer to many problems in our practice of prayer. There are a number of reasons that could be given as to why Christians should “Pray the Bible,” but the ones below combine to make a rather convincing argument:

1. Praying scripturally will teach us what prayer is, even while we do it.

2. It will correct “shopping list” views of prayer which abound in the Christian community.

3. It will begin to solve in our own minds the question of “unanswered prayer.”

4. It will remind us of just how much there is to pray about day by day.

5. It will teach us of the extreme urgency of prayer.

6. It will return proportion to prayers long on petition, but short on adoration, confession, and thanksgiving.

Read the rest of this list over at Method for Prayer.

There’s plenty of other useful resources on the site, too. These include prayers for adoration, confession, petition, thanksgiving, intercession and the Lord’s Prayer. There’s also occasional addresses and short forms of prayer.

If you’re already a Christian, this site may be very beneficial to you. If not, I recommend the article [offsite]: Questions about Jesus Christ.
