Pray

Hear my prayer, O Lord; give ear to my pleas for mercy! In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness!

– PSALM 143:1

But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

– MATTHEW 6:6

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

– MARK 11:24

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.

– JOHN 15:1

The Importance of Prayer

By Guy Richard:

It is so easy to get sidetracked in plans, methods, programs, and activities. We need to be reminded continually that prayer is more important than these plans, methods, programs, and activities. It is more important because God really does answer prayer, because we are all busy, and because God works primarily in and through people instead of methods or programs. We need to remember that…and pray!

 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

– PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

I THESSALONIANS 5:16-18

And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.

– 1 JOHN 5:14
