How to Have Spiritual Prayers

But when you saturate you mind with the Christ-exalting Word of God and turn it into prayer, your desires and your prayers become spiritual.  That is, they are shaped by the Holy Spirit into God centered, Christ-exalting prayers.  The glory of Christ, and the name of God, and the spiritual well-being of people and the delight you have in knowing Jesus – these become your dominant concerns and your constant requests.
