What is a Prayer ?

Prayer is the chief agency and activity whereby we align ourselves with God's purpose.  Prayer does not consist in battering the walls of heaven for personal benefits or the success of our plans.  Rather it is the commitment of ourselves for His purposes.  It is a telephone call to headquarters for orders.  It is not bending God's will to ours, but our will to God's.  In prayer, we tap vast reservoirs of spiritual power whereby God can find fuller entrance into the hearts of men.

If Christians spent as much time praying as they do grumbling, they would soon have nothing to grumble about. Prayer is an integral link in Christian spiritual life, and is the key moment when we have a communion with God. It needs us to open our hearts, speak our hearts to God, quiet our hearts before Him, and truly call out to Him. 

2 Chronicles 7:14

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.

The sacred promises, though in themselves most sure and precious, are of no avail for the comfort and sustenance of the soul unless you grasp them by faith, plead them in prayer, expect them by hope, and receive them with gratitude. -Spurgeon

      In a Deep Prayer

 

We often encounter difficulties in our lives and sometimes we will lose faith in God and succumb to the temptation of Satan. How can we hold on to faith in God in hard times?

If you encounter problems in life or belief that you don’t know how to resolve, please don’t lose faith. We sincerely invite you to pray and seek the truth with us so that you can understand God’s will and find the solutions. We are also pleased to explore with you the effectiveness of prayer in one's life. Many people say, “I don't really know how to pray.” But God’s instructions are clear as to how to pray, who to pray for, when to pray, where to pray, and what you should pray for. The Bible gives specific direction for all those things and more. God created us to be in fellowship with Him and daily prayer is important to that relationship.

Bible Verses about How to Pray

Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:7,8 NLT

For I cried out to him for help, praising him as I spoke. Psalm 66:17
