James 5:16 (NIV)

The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.

“The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.”

“When a believing person prays, great things happen.”

Philippians 4:6 (NLT)

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NLT)

Always be joyful.  Never stop praying.  Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

Matthew 6:5-6 (NLT)

“When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get. But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private.  Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.”

Luke 11:1-2 (NIV)

One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”

”Prayer, in many ways, is the supreme expression of our faith in God.”
– Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“A prayerless church member is a hindrance. He is in the body like a rotting bone or a decayed tooth. Before long, since he does not contribute to the benefit of his brethren, he will become a danger and a sorrow to them. Neglect of private prayer is the locust which devours the strength of the church.”
– Charles Spurgeon

“The one concern of the Devil is to keep Christians from praying. He cares nothing for prayerless work, prayerless study, or prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, he mocks our wisdom, but he trembles when we pray!”
– Samuel Chadwick

Genesis 24:62-63 (NLT)

Meanwhile, Isaac, whose home was in the Negev….One evening as he was walking and meditating in the fields, he looked up and saw the camels coming.

Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.

2. As you walk or drive remember God’s power!

Psalm 77:11-12 (NIV)

I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds.

3. As you walk (or drive) pray for your actual neighbors!

Proverbs 21:1 (NCV)

The LORD can control a king’s mind as he controls a river; he can direct it as he pleases.
