Prayer is as essential to knowing God and growing spiritually, as breathing is to living and staying healthy. Our walk with God is only as strong as the communication between you and Him.
Jesus told us to pray. Luke 18:1 says, “Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart.” Prayer is God’s appointed way of obtaining things. James 4:2 says, “You do not have because you do not ask.” Prayer is the way by which God helps us to overcome our anxiety and worry.
Philippians 4:6 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Prayer is one of the ways we make ourselves ready for the return of Jesus Christ. Luke 21:34–36 says, “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will be as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
It is always time to pray! Remember, Scripture tells you to “[cast] all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).
Do not neglect this vital part of your Christian walk.
