Recently I found out the way you pray for someone or something you love is different from the way you pray for something or someone that's not as close to your heart. We may have done it unconsciously but it's the fact.
I prayed for my family one day and felt like my heart was bleeding to do more. Also, I prayed generally or should I say randomly and it was just there. I'm not saying I didn't do my best but comparing it to the way I prayed for my loved ones, it was different.
You pray for those you love. You pray for what you love. Prayer is another way of expressing love. Have you ever felt the need of just prayer for your husband or wife? Not because they asked you but because you wanted to and felt a need to.
As much as prayer is good, communication is better. When we pray we communicate with our father. We don't just talk to him, we commune with him. Communication is a tw👎way thing, sending and receiving. When we pray, God listens and when he is done listening he replies back that's prayer.
Love is that element that stretches you beyond that comfort zone to go an extra mile. Love is that element that makes you feel, you've not prayed enough and wants you to do better. Love is that element that allows you give your spirit, soul and body for the cause you are praying for. That love that Wells up in your heart for that something or someone is the driving force of your prayer.
Without love, you may never truly pray because as love is connected to you heart so is prayer also connected to your heart. When it's not from your heart, it may never be enough.

Prayer is a platform for communing with God either on a personal level or grant then for others (intercessory).

The level of commitment for intercession are mostly controlled by levels of closeness to the person been prayed for, intensity of the issue at hand, etc which has direct link with our emotions.
Growth in our prayer-lives is sustainable by more commitment to the Holy spirit and directives rather than just emotions.
And as rightly portrayed, it's a tw👎way line. We tend to hear from God (not just a monologue).
Of course, God speaks but most times we don't pay adequate attention. Even His promises are well written in the Bible but most times we fail to properly pray them to fulfilment or rather prefer that which we most desire (which might not even be His will for us) be done outrightly.
May the Lord help us to learn to pray accordingly

Love pushes you into living a life of sacrifice, be it convenient or not. The interest of another becomes your sole priority. The joy of others becomes your everyday desire.

When you  love  and are close to someone , you get to know their needs and whatever challenges they maybe  facing .  Naturally ,Knowing people's needs especially that of those people that are close to us will always makes to intercede for them in the place of prayer.

@Dukesons:

Practically speaking, Such love is not common among men. Choose others interest over yours isn't common even among family members. 

Such love is divine, only God's loves unconditionally and eternally, this kind of love cannot be manifested or expressed on the strength of the flesh or with a natural mind. 

However, believers must learn to lean on the Holy ghost to release the true fragrance of the love of God in their hearts for us to ove others genuinely, with these divine love we can travail in prayers for others. 

If when they offend us terribly, we can speak by God's love that we love them and forgive them. 

Like the prodigal son's father, we can pant for the change of those that err.

@Temidayo: you can't separate Love from prayer.

Prayer is a demonstration of love.
You can't commune with who you don't love.

So the first thin love pushes you to do is to commune and spend quality time with the father through prayer.

Prayer is one of the medium or Chanel through which Mortal (man) expresses his love for God.
People who don't pray don't love God. You can't say you love somebody that you are not spending time with.
It is love that makes people spend days and hours In the place of prayer. 
Love is what makes you to spend quality time with the girl you love just to talk with her. In the same  way, prayer is what makes you spend quality time with God.

That is why the Bible most time admonishe us to love God, because when you love God genuinely, praying will become a thing of joy. Prayer is sweet when love for God is strong.

Anyone who want to build a strong and solid prayer llife must learn to first love God. Love the Lord with all your heart and your might. 

How to build love:
1. Read his word.
The word of God is the expression of God's love to man.
When you read and study his word, you become a lover of God. 1 John 4 v 1 . God is love.

2. Always sing is praise.
You must learn how to sing praises to the Lord. The Bible says "out of the mouth of babes and Suckling's has the lord ordained praise". It further says that let everything that has breath praise the name of the lord.

Thank you so much.

@Wisemamsam: God is love. When praying, you are communing with love. When pray is not from the heart filled with love, such pray can be a missed prayer. Some people when orayiprhave this fear or this mindset that their prayer will not be answered. When you have such mindset, your prayers will be not even home anywhere.   

  The God you are praying for has so much strong love for us to the extent He was and He is called love. Then why will you be having such mindset. He is is love and whatever He says and does, is out of love. 
  Prayer and love can not be separated. You can't even pray when you don't love prayer. Have you ever imagine how possible it is for someone to be inside his room through out the whole day praying? It's beyond the natural strength. Love pushes you to do the extra ordinary. just the way you can go at any length to buy something for your girlfriend during her birthday. Those who pray for long, have someday fell in love with prayer.

  As far as you are able intercessor. The reason why I said intercessor is because, the Bible says " men ought always to pray when not to faint" so it is a call. As a believer you are called into that office. You ought always to pray. So always you are suppose to be praying to God. So if you must interceed over the people in the yoshospi, you must first think of what they are passing through, the love you will have to them will push you to pray for them. If you want to interceed for those under satanic bondage, when you think about how devil have been tormenting them and using them, the love you will develop will make you pray for them.
 If you want to interceed for a state or a country,  the love you have for such country will make you pray more.
  
  So if you want to pray more, love more.

love and prayers.. love means charity and prayer Means that Jesus Christ. though I speak with the tongues of men and of angles. and have not charity .I Am become as sounding brass. or a tinkling cymbal. and Though I have the gift of prophecy. and understanding all mysteries. and all knowledge. and though I have all faith. so that I could remove the mountains. and have not charity. I am nothing. and Though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor. and though I give my body to be burned. and have not charity. it profited me nothing. charity suffers long. and is kind. charity envies not. charity vaunts not itself. is not puffed up. does not behave itself unseemly. seek not her own. is not easily provoked. thinks no evil. rejoices not in iniquity. but rejoices in the truth.

   Praying for our families is good I mean who wouldn't want to include your family members in your prayers?,I don't think I should be saying this but I will anyway ,I take my time everyday to pray for my country,now what is Nigeria without the people?,I pray for the motherless,and the orphans,this is what we call love,of course interceeding on the behalf of those you know already,what you think they are lacking that pains your heart is love, but putting yourself in the shoes of others and asking yourself if it were to be me what would have happened?,or what would I have done, is  selfless.


  Let's say for example you were on your way to work and as you were walking to the main bustop to board a bus, a moving vehicle was coming from behind which you yourself didn't notice and something just told you to move to the left, and you did , it wasn't as if you were on the road , you were walking on the right lane and immediately the driver loosed control and his bus hit the exact spot you were on before you moved, your first reaction will be "thank God",and then you may go about thinking it was the prayers you use to pray, or the prayers your families do pray on your behalf, you may not know that it was the prayer that a stranger, prayed on your behalf that worked for you, there are times God grant some people's prayers and there are other times he doesn't, one of which may be because of our sins, maybe at the time your loved one prayed for you the sin of your loved one prevented the prayer from being granted and then one righteous man without knowing you made the same prayer and your blessings got to you, we should always cultivate the habit of praying for those in need and the less privileged because that is a sign of love, not unconditional love but selfless love, putting others before your self in prayers have so many rewards attached to it, you never can tell if it is someone else's prayers that you don't even know that  have been working for you through out the years..., We should learn to make our closets war room for others, let's learn the good habit of deriving joy when we go on our knees for the sake of others.

                Love and prayers, love is a deep feeling, devotion or a strong emotion of regards of someone. When you love someone you hurt them or want them to get hurt because you love them. You die for someone all because of love,  that what love is. While prayer on the hand is very different form love. 


   
        You can not talk about prayer without talking about faith, you need faith before you can pray because you only pray to someone or something you believe in. So without faith you can not do that, that why faith is so important in prayer cause you need to believe in something be you can pray to it.  Prayer is actually communicating with someone or something you believe in. You prayer can be request or a petition or intersection, meaning praying on behalf of some one. 



      Love and prayer actually go hand in hand with each other, in other words you pray for people you love people who are closest to you, it can a family member or a friend. It is love that why he sent his only son to die for us and save us form sin. That why he let us pray to him through his son Jesus Christ and that why he answer our prayers. All because he loved us, now that is wonderful what do you think about love and prayer.

LOVE AND PRAYER.
This topic is a two different topic which is broad though both can be relate together. Love is an affection that you have towards someone or something and also love is reciprocal. When we bring the meaning of Love into God’s word we will say “GOD IS LOVE” and I will say Love is not complete if we don’t talk about God and there’s no way someone can love you genuinely if he/she haven’t love God because the love of God is what makes your heart ready to love so failure to know God is failure to Love appropriately.  

God’s love towards us human is the most powerful and the most genuine ever. We humans is the most luck creatures in this world because God loved us unconditionally even when we don’t love or even care about him yet he died for us - Somebody died for the sins he didn’t committed. What a loving Father! Many of us has done a whole lot of things for him and we’ve really hurt him but then he won’t stop loving us. There are people that knows about his death for us but yet they refused to serve him – that doesn’t stop him from loving.

God’s love is amazing and it’s so amazing because he didn’t love you so that he can gain in return but he loved us unconditionally – that is if you love him and if you don’t love him notwithstanding he won’t stop loving you and that’s why we as human needs to understand that our greatest purpose in life is to “LOVE GOD AND LOVE OTHERS UNCONDITIONALLY”. Many of us do hold on to the past hurts and we vowed not to forgive but yet we claim to love others whereas you can’t love if you don’t have the heart of forgiveness for others.

We are all once a sinner and we do sin a lot to God but that does not stop him from loving us unconditionally – so what’s now your excuse for not forgiving others. You can’t erase the past hurts but you can avoid the future hurts so therefore the moment you realized the love God has for you, you are also meant to reciprocate the love to others by forgiving them genuinely from your hearts.

Prayer is a way of communication and the reason why love and prayer is related is that you can’t love someone and don’t want to communicate with the person and same thing Is applicable to us. When we love God with the whole of our hearts we will realized that communication between us is very essential. Finally, if you haven’t met him at all it’s not too late because he is nearer than you can imagine and he came mainly because of the lost souls so stop delaying your salvation – salvation is what illuminate our life and the moment you start loving him he will keep changing your levels.

Love and prayer works in a mysterious way that we can not predict. 
It is something that is so common in almost every human being.,even the ministers of God. Of course, it is not a sin.,it is normal to dwell more in prayers of our loved ones than those we aren't related to. 
Also, as it is said that blood is thicker than water, so also love is thicker than blood. You may not love some of your families or relatives as you love your partner. 
Of course, we can not be so close to all our relatives, so the love has limits, it cannot be compared with the one you have for your mediate family, husband or wife. A woman who wake up in the morning and pray for his husband before any other person knows that she now has a family which has to come first.
The only person that does not pray base on love or blood is an intercessor.

Prayer is the only way by which we communicate with god through prayer we talk to god andhe answer us ,likewise love goes along with prayer because we pray for those who we love and what we love.
You could see that people pray for those who they love and care for ,for example let look at our parent especially mothers ,mothers they care so much about their children and therefore they pray for them.
Prayer is very important in our love as a believer we have to pray often and often because every time is full of evil but we use prayer to change it back ,prayer work but it may not be fast as possible.
If you love the people around you and you care for them ,your prayer will be answers because of the love you show to people .
Let build the habit of praying and love then you will see it is the best way of life.

The basics and the essence of creation is communication with our creator.
There are various ways we can communicate with our creator.
We can communicate by prayers, we can also communicate with our creator by reading the Bible and by also singing and praising his holy name.
That is all that is expected of us as humans.
If only we could develop a personal relationship with our creator and worship him in spirit and in truth, then we have nothing to worry about because he's able to supply all our needs according to his riches in glory.

@Wisemamsam:

As christains loves becomes a large part of our lifestyle and you know that is why we are called christains, to be like Christ, to love like Christ. that same love should evident in our prayer life. most times we are so selfish when we pray, we only have reasons to pray for ourselves, families, relatives, friends and loved ones. Well its not bad to pray for yourself and for those you are close with, but the Bible says in 1Timothy 1:2 that FIRST OF ALL prayers, supplications, intercessions and thanksgiving should be made for all men, for kings and even for all in authority. and in verse 4 it says that God wants them all men saved and that there should come to knowledge of the truth.

Sounds like an easy thing to do but remeber apostle Paul said "first of all" even before praying for our needs, because God kind of love puts other people first before ourselves, that is exactly what Jesus will do. Paul never stop intercesseding for the church. Epapharas was also an example, Jesus even urge us to intercessed for the lost.
