Since our Lord Jesus Christ told us to avoid unnecessary repetitions in our prayers, what are the kinds of prayers we should then be praying without ceasing.
There is no way I can fully answer your question without also telling you the purpose of praying without ceasing.
The kind of prayers to pray without ceasing is the prayer for unbroken Communion with God. Maintaining an unbroken fellowship with God, every moment, holds great importance in the lives of the believers.
This kind of prayer enables God to continuously work in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure. We will be able to to make good decisions and choose to abey God in all situations because there will be conscious supply of power to obey from our spirit by the Holy Spirit. The Enemy, the world system, and even our Flesh are constantly working contrary working of God through our spirit to ensnare us out of the way of Life; to disobey God or compromise the truth.
Fellowship with God is a source of spiritual nourishment. Just as physical food sustains our bodies, regular communion with God through prayer, worship, and study of His Word nourishes our spirits. It deepens our understanding of His character, His will for our lives, and provides the guidance and wisdom we need to navigate life's challenges.
Fellowship with God fosters an intimate and personal relationship with the God. It allows believers to experience the love, grace, and mercy of God firsthand. Through consistent fellowship, individuals can develop a deeper understanding of God's nature, His desires for their lives, and His unchanging faithfulness. This closeness cultivates trust, comfort, and a sense of belonging.
Unbroken fellowship with God facilitates spiritual growth and transformation. As believers spend time in His presence, they become more attuned to His voice, promptings, and leading. The Holy Spirit works within them, convicting, teaching, and empowering them to live according to God's principles. Through fellowship, individuals are transformed from the inside out, becoming more like Christ in character and actions.
Life can be filled with challenges, trials, and uncertainties. Maintaining fellowship with God provides strength and encouragement in times of difficulty. In His presence, believers find solace, peace, and a source of unwavering hope. The assurance of God's love and His promises fortify their hearts and enable them to persevere through adversity.
Fellowship with God helps believers align their lives with His purposes. Through ongoing communion, individuals gain insight into God's plan for their lives and discover their unique gifts and calling. God's guidance and direction enable them to make choices that honor Him, benefit others, and contribute to the advancement of His kingdom on earth.
Regular fellowship with God brings a transformation of perspective. It helps believers see the world through His eyes, with compassion, love, and a desire to bring about positive change. It shifts their focus from self-centeredness to selflessness, encouraging acts of kindness, service, and the pursuit of justice and righteousness.
Unbroken fellowship with God brings a deep sense of joy and fulfillment. The presence of God satisfies the deepest longings of the human heart. It fills believers with a joy that surpasses circumstances and provides a lasting sense of purpose and contentment. In God's presence, individuals experience true fulfillment, finding their ultimate satisfaction in Him alone.
Fortunately, prayers of abiding are simple prayers. The following are the samples of prayer for abiding in Christ that true believers must pray without ceasing
1. I cover myself with the blood of Jesus Christ in the name of Jesus Christ
2. I soak every part of my body, soul, and spirit with the blood of Jesus Christ in the name of Jesus Christ
3. Holy Ghost Fire, be burning continously in every part of my body, soul, and spirit in the name of Jesus Christ
There is a warning here. You must ensure that you end the prayer 'in the name of Jesus Christ'. The prayers are simple but very powerful when prayed in the name of Jesus Christ. There are other prayers for abiding meant for matured believers.
Once in 5 minutes is still okay. It is not so important to be audible, you can doing your work and still praying it.
