Prayer is a very important part of a Christian’s daily life. Prayer should be from your heart to the Lord, not the recitation of automatic prayers that are from your mind.
Prayer is worshiping, praising, and honoring God!
Prayer is thanking the Lord God for everything and anything in our lives.
Prayer is trusting the Lord God in all our daily activities.
Prayer is talking to Jesus.
Prayer is listening to God.
Prayer is carrying on a conversation with him.
Prayer is asking God to guide and direct our lives.
Prayer is not always asking God for what we want.
"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
I Thessalonians 5:16-18
"Evening and morning and at noon I will pray and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice."
This verse does not conflict with the first one. We should have 3 definite times to stop, ignore our surroundings, and PRAY to God, taking time to meditate on Him!
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made know to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
