Prayer is the most often mentioned activity in the Bible, including prayers of praise to God, prayers of confession of sin, prayers of consecration or dedication and prayers of faith like anointing. Prayer was an essential part of the New Testament church and work and essential in God’s church today. Prayer must be part of our spiritual tools, food and consciousness. Knowing God and making Him part of our consciousness is the purpose of prayer. God already knows everything about us and what we need even before we ask. We need to get to know God as our Father and develop a personal, close relationship with Him. Ask God to help you and learn to do it right!
