“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
What is Prayer?
In its simplest form prayer is “talking to God.” Prayer is not meditation, passive reflections, or repeated words or phrases, it is the created one talking to the One who created. The privilege of prayer is for the believer in Jesus Christ to bring their requests to God the Father. It is how we share our emotions, desires, and dreams with God and fellowship with Him. So often we approach our prayer time as if it was a one-way telephone conversation or as if we were reading a Christmas wish list.
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” II Chronicles 7:14 KJV
