Prayer is powerful, prayer needs to be purposeful, prayer is our connection to God, prayer should be continual, prayer shows our dependence on God and measures our faith.
The stronger our faith, the more we pray.
When we God's people pray nothing is impossible, captives are set free, the lame walk, the blind see and the dead live again.
We pray to little because we want to live independently of God, but until we realize how much we depend on Him we will not seek Him in prayer.
We serve a mighty God creator of all things, ruler over all things, He bids us come to Him and approach His throne boldly in prayer, He focuses on what we ask and speaks to us personally because He is God our Father and He loves us.
Jesus prayed often, throughout the gospels we see reference to this. Do we pray often?
My prayer life can always improve, this I know the more I know God the more I want to speak to Him and hear from Him, and that is what prayer is, an intimate conversation about all things with my Heavenly Father who waits to speak with His children, will you listen?
Will you come into His presence and speak with your creator today?
Prayer is our privilege to speak to our LORD and Savior personally.
God's word says this;
“Stay awake and pray, so that you won’t enter into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
Matthew 26:41 CSB
“In the same way the Spirit also helps us in our weakness, because we do not know what to pray for as we should, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with unspoken groanings.” Romans 8:26 CSB
“Stand, therefore, with truth like a belt around your waist, righteousness like armor on your chest, and your feet sandaled with readiness for the gospel of peace. In every situation take up the shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit — which is the word of God. Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.”
Ephesians 6:14-18 CSB
1 Thessalonians 5:17 CSB
“Therefore, I want the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or argument.”
1 Timothy 2:8 CSB
“Therefore, let us approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in time of need.”Hebrews 4:16 CSB
“Is anyone among you suffering? He should pray. Is anyone cheerful? He should sing praises.” James 5:13 CSB
