What is Prayer?

Well, prayer is communication with God. Because God is personal, all people can pray. However, sinners who have not trusted Jesus Christ for their salvation remain alienated from God. So while unbelievers may pray, they do not have the blessing of a rewarding fellowship with God. Prayer is used in many ways, but most of all when we pray we must pray in faith and be sincere. Pray with the belief that God hears and answers our prayers.

These are a few ways we use prayer: 

  • Worship:  We worship the highest divine being.
  • Confession:  Being aware of our own sinfulness. We must confess our sins to God to get right with Him; we should confess them directly to God, who promises to forgive us of all our sins.
  • Adoration:  God is love. (John 3:16) "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
  • Praise:  Praise is the results of faith, worship, confession, and adoration. We praise the one that we highly regard and love, the one whom we respect and love above all others.
  • Thanksgiving:  Sometimes we are unthankful because we may think we did not receive what we deserve. But, if we got what we "deserved," we would be condemned because of our sins. As sinners, we are not people of God by nature. We have no claim upon His mercy or grace. Nevertheless, He has forgiven our sins, granted us acceptance as His people, and given us His righteous standing and a new heart and a new life.  Believers, live thankfully. God has been at work on our behalf in many ways. So in everything, give thanks.

Prayer:  Dear Father, We thank you for what you do for us every day, the many blessings, the blessing of forgiveness, the blessings of your love, a love so strong that you sent your only Son to die for us. Lord let us show our love for you by our praise and adoration.
