Non-Denominational Prayer: A Universal Approach to God

Pray to be more like Jesus

Have you ever noticed that Jesus looked up to pray with outstretched hands? Or that He only prayed at meals when He was doing miracles by feeding thousands?

He didn’t pray like the churches have us pray. Jesus prayed like He has a personal relationship with God. So what happened?

Religion and people happened. We started worshiping for ceremony and each other instead of God. Let’s fix it and find out how we can become better children of God.

What Is Non-Denominational Prayer?

Non-denominational prayer offers a universal approach and prioritizes your relationship with God over your relationship with a religious organization.

Non-denominational prayer is not tied to any particular religious doctrine or dogma. It’s simply speaking to God like He is your father—because He is.

Non-denominational prayer encourages flexibility and openness when approaching God. It allows us to express our deepest feelings, thoughts, and desires without worrying about religious formality.

small church, big prayers

God knows everything about you and doesn’t care if you wear a fancy robe or chant some rubbish that you’ve memorized when you pray.

Benefits of Non-Denominational Prayer

Non-denominational prayer offers a couple benefits:

  1. Authentic: Non-denominational prayers are genuine communication with God. It’s not a ritual, but it is a routine—or should be.
  2. Accessibility: It’s easy to do because there’s nothing to memorize, nowhere specific to be, and nothing fancy to wear.

Tips for Leading and Participating in Non-Denominational Prayer

Approach prayer with sensitivity and an open heart. Here are some tips:

  1. God is Not a Genie: Prayer is only effective when we are demonstrating our purpose. He created us to glorify Him—not ourselves. That’s our purpose.
  2. Foster a Sense of Unity: Encourage an atmosphere of unity and shared spirituality, emphasizing common values and aspirations.
  3. Openness to Personal Expression: Allow individuals to express their spirituality in their own way, whether through words, silence, or other forms of communication.
  4. Adapt to the Occasion: Tailor non-denominational prayers to the specific occasion or setting, whether it’s a community gathering or a moment of personal reflection.

Non-Denominational Prayer in Education

Non-denominational prayer should also have a role in educational settings, including schools and universities. However, this would send the secular and lost souls over the edge.

Religious freedom was supposed to protect Christianity from the government, but they’ve twisted it into something ugly. Now they just use it to attack genuine faith in Jesus.

How to Approach God in Prayer

Simply come as you are while remembering that you and I are His servants.

 Participate in prayer.

I Surrender To You Lord

Jesus said, “the one who comes to me I will certainly not cast out” (John 6:37, NASB).

God honors and accepts any act of surrender, large or small.

Have Your Way With Me Father

Jesus taught his followers to pray, “Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10, NASB). Learning to pray this sincerely can transform your praying and your living.

This is a shorter Christian prayer that He wants to answer. You’ll typically get transformation if you ask for it, so be prepared for change.

I’m a Fallen Sinner: Forgive Me My King

No one who has sincerely asked for God’s forgiveness and placed their faith in Jesus has ever been denied. He is good and forgiving to all who call upon Him (Psalm 86:5).

Lead Me According to Your Purpose Father

Do you feel like a lost sheep that keeps jumping in a hole? Get unstuck and pray like the psalmist:

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground.

Psalm 143:10 (NASB)

Bring My People Under Your Grace Lord

The Bible says that God doesn’t want anyone to perish. He wants everyone to come to repentance and experience new life in Christ (2 Peter 3:9).

Non-denominational prayer

God will answer your prayers when His will and your praying agree with each other.

Use Me For Your Purpose My King

The Bible records early Christians praying, and they didn’t pray for deliverance from hardship or persecution. They asked God to enable His servants to speak His word with boldness (Acts 4:29).

And God answered their prayers. Brace yourself when you pray to be used because He will answer.

Transform Me to be More Like You Lord

We come to Jesus the way we are, but we don’t stay that way. Someone needs to tell the apostate fake churches this fact. Salvation comes with transformation. We should probably just pray for the church and ask God to have His way.

God loves to answer when a follower of Jesus prays to be more like Jesus Christ. Jesus is our perfect high priest and king. Being more like Him is the goal.

For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;

Romans 8:29 (NASB)

So come as you are, talk to God like He’s your father, and make you life’s goal to be more and more like Jesus. Doing that leads to everlasting life in paradise.
