What is Prayer?
Prayer may best be described as a conversation with God. While folding our hands is frequently associated with someone praying, hand-folding is not required for God to hear us, of course! Eyes open or closed. Standing, sitting, walking, driving, or any possible activity can be a perfect context for talking to God. Record, write or draw your prayers. Remember, the apostle Paul said to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). So, the main thing is to just pray.
How Important Is Prayer?
What is your response when someone offers to pray for you? You welcome the prayer, right? Have you ever replied, “No thanks, I don’t want your prayer”? Some people may resist the idea of prayer for any number of reasons, but most of the time, people welcome prayer. Jesus models a life deeply expressed by prayer. Our active prayer list engages us. Every week, we share requests and answers to prayer that encourage all of us.
