Why is Prayer Important?
1. It glorifies God (John 14:13). “We glorify god through prayer as we acknowledge who god is, our dependence on him, his ability to answer our prayer and our confidence in him.”
2. Prayer builds intimacy with God. “Communication draws us closer to god and deepens our personal relationship with him.”
3. God commands us to pray. Thessalonians 5:17; Ephesians 6:18, ” Prayer unleashes the power of God and enables us to have an impact on the world (Acts 4:23-33; See also Matthew 9:38). “When the believers prayed, God’s great power was released as they went out to witness boldly.”
