Prayer

What is prayer?

Prayer is our way of communicating with God. Prayer helps us to grow spiritually. As we embark on our prayer journey we begin to build an intimate relationship with God. Through prayer, we appeal to God for his mercy, forgiveness, grace, and love.

 

Why should we pray?

God’s Word commands us to pray (Luke 18:1, 10,2). Jesus also prayed (Matthew 4:1-2).

 

Is prayer really necessary?

Prayer is critical and necessary for Christians. As we spend time with God in prayer, He will give us the answers to our questions, solutions to our problems, guidance when in a dark or lost place in life, peace in the midst of a storm, understanding when we are confused, courage when we are dismayed, and faith when we’re in doubt. When we pray according to God’s will, which is His Word, we can be assured that our prayers will be answered.

How must we pray?

One of the most important elements of effective prayer is praying to the Father in JESUS’ name (John 14:13-14). We must also pray by faith, continually, with a pure heart, thanksgiving, and assurance that our prayers will be answered (Mark 11:24-25, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 & Philippians 4:4-7).  There is no right or wrong way to pray.  Prayer styles vary, and yours is uniquely designed for you.
