Is prayer a significant part of your daily life? As believers, we are each called into intimate communication with God on an ongoing basis, indeed unceasingly!
This month we will dig a little into the soil of our faith and talk about cultivating prayer in our lives.
God’s Word has plenty to say on the matter of prayer:
Who? All believers should pray.
“(Pray) at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,” Ephesians 6:18
What? There are many kinds of prayers.
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people,” 1 Timothy 2:1
When? Pray constantly.
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Where? Pray anywhere, but don’t make a show of it.
“But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” Matthew 6:6
Why? We pray because Jesus set the example for us. Not to mention, we are commanded to!
“In these days he went out to the mountain to pray, and all night he continued in prayer to God.” Luke 6:12
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Philippians 4:6
