And in the morning very early before day, Jesus arose and went out into a solitary place, and there prayed. Mark 1:35 1599 Geneva Bible
Prayer is the second greatest gift from God, the first being His Plan of Salvation. Prayer is worship. It may, in fact, be the highest form of worship. Imagine being invited into conversation with the Creator of the universe. And of emulating Christ the Exemplar and Finisher of our salvation.
Prayer is simply communicating with God. That’s it. Scripture makes it clear that there’s no right way to pray. When you talk, God listens. It’s not the words that matter to God as much as what’s in our heart.
We are to pray to the Father, in the name of the Son, through the power of the Holy Spirit. All three members are active participants in the believer’s prayer. The Holy Spirit helps us to pray even when we do not know how or what to ask for (Romans 8:26).
