Which part of the Trinity should Christians pray to?

We should pray to God, who is 3 in one, according to the Christian doctrine of the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Comparing to what Muslims think, believing in the Trinity is not shirk because, for Christians, it does not go against tawhid.

If we go deeper in this subject, we’ll see that the Trinity members each have a specific “outcome” when it comes to praying:
– We should direct our prayers to the FatherMatt 6:6 and Matt 6:9; 1 Pet 1:17; Eph 3:14
– We should pray in the Son‘s (Jesus’) name. John 14:13-14
– We should pray empowered by the Holy SpiritEph 6:18Romans 8:26-27

If you want to understand this topic deeper, I encourage you to go through this lesson and read these articles: Pray to God the Father in the Name of Jesus Christ and Praying to the Father in Jesus Name By Tom Brown.

Come on, Christians! Prayer is very important, so let’s pray correctly!

    At the same time the Spirit also helps us in our weakness, because we don’t know how to pray for what we need. But the Spirit intercedes along with our groans that cannot be expressed in words. The one who searches our hearts knows what the Spirit has in mind. The Spirit intercedes for God’s people the way God wants him to.
    (Rom 8:26-27 GW)
