The Importance of Prayer

I am assuming if you are reading this blog then prayer is at least somewhat important to you. At its very basic level, prayer is defined as communication with God. Reminder: communication does not just involve talking, it involves listening, too!

How often do you pray? What do you pray for in your prayers? Is there anything for which we ought not to pray?

I believe God wants to hear from you. One of our prayers that we use in our church liturgy reads like this: “O God, who gave us birth, you are ever more ready to hear than we are to pray.” Communication in any relationship is crucially vital. Without constant communication two people drift apart. The same is true in our prayer life with God.

God wants to hear from you. So, won’t you pray and communicate with God today?
