What is Prayer


What is prayer?

We hear about it in church, talk about it with friends, and read about it in books. But when it comes to actually praying, many of us struggle with where to begin.

So today, we want to help break down some of those barriers by sharing what God has to say about the power of prayer.

  • “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” 1 John 5:14
  • “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6
  • “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.” Psalm 145:18
  • “About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them.” Acts 16:25
  • “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3

We hope you’re¬†encouraged by these verses and start praying today!
