Unless and until you understand spiritual matters, you can never pray effectively.
The reason why most people do not have an effective prayer life is because they do not have access to activities that happen in the atmosphere when they pray. In your spiritual journey, you need to be educated in the things of God. Because it is that kind of education that gives you an advantage and places you above situations.
You must know not only how God operates but also how you are expected to operate by God.
There is need for spiritual knowledge in the body of Christ.
