Prayer is simply a conversation with God. As a Christian, you have a right to pray directly to God in the name of Jesus Christ. Prayer not only involves your speaking to God, but also includes God speaking to you. It is a two way conversation.
We pray to fellowship with God; to strengthen our relationship with God; to become more acquainted with God’s nature; to intercede for others; to remind God of what He has already said in His word concerning our lives; to receive direction; to receive understanding of God’s personal will for our lives.
Prayer is a vital part of your life. You should always pray knowing that God is your only source who supplies us with strength and power each day in every area of life. Jesus said that “Men ought always to pray and faint not” in Luke 18:1. God has taken care of everything that is a hindrance to your prayer life. God has given you the right to come boldly to Him through the blood of Jesus (Hebrews 10:19). At any point, no matter what you have done even when you sin and don’t feel worthy, you have an invitation to the throne room of God.
We encourage you to develop a prayer life. There is no requirement on the length of your prayer; neither is there a type of speech required when you pray. The key is starting. The more you pray and fill your heart with God’s Word, the more you will desire spending time with God. Whether it’s 1 minute or 1 hour, God hears and wants to hear from you. If you are looking for an opportunity to pray with others, join us every Wednesday at 6pm in the Bookstore at Spirit Filled Ministries on Mulberry Drive.
