Prayer develops our relationship with God
Can you imagine never talking with your spouse or best friend? What kind of relationship would that be? The same is true for our relationship with God. Prayer is our way of growing in that relationship.
Prayer shows our dependence on God
Through prayer we acknowledge our need for God and His involvement in our lives. We humble ourselves by going to Him in prayer.
Prayer changes things
Prayer taps into the power of God to bring change to our lives and the world around us.
In the Gospels, Jesus clearly modeled the power and importance of prayer. Throughout Scripture, we are exhorted to pray at all times, in every occasion and without ceasing.
