Why Should We Pray?

In every relationship, there are a variety of methods of communication. The same is true for your relationship with God. As you come to learn more about God and His delight in you, your prayer may be guided by examples from the Bible like the Lord’s Prayer or as simple as reviewing the day’s events with Him. Prayer is just the word used for talking to God - communication between you and your heavenly Father. Whether written or spoken, shouted or whispered, individual or corporate, prayer is your connection to God. 

There will be times you will feel like kneeling before His presence as you pray and times when your most authentic communication with God will be as you drive. You can take time alone to pray through a section of Scripture or spontaneously thank Him for the beauty of the day. Prayer does not have to be formal or informal, kneeling, standing, or lying before Him. As you will discover, prayer reflects your concerns, your gratitude, your challenges ;  it reflects you and your desire for God to provide you with the strength and wisdom to live a life that pleases Him. 

God created you as you are, and He wants to spend time communicating with you. Prayer is your asking Him for guidance in difficult circumstances. As you open your Bible each day, ask Jesus to open your eyes and heart to see and hear what His Spirit says to you.
