1) Stillness - relax and quiet your mind
When you are in your quiet space is when you can get in touch with your inner man
2) Vision - focus on God's promises
meditate on God's Word and what He has done for you
3) Spontaneity - do something off calendar
Let go and let God
4) Keep a Journal - write down your prayers
When you write down your prayers they are coming from the heart. God answers prayers that the heart utters.
God will answer
'And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear (Isaiah 65:24).'
