Prayer is one of the most important things we can do! It is the way that we communicate with God, and it is something that takes a lot of practice and some people find it really hard to do. I won’t name any names. We need to talk to Him so much that it is just second nature, and not only when something bad happens, but always. Here is what God’s word says about prayer.
I sought the Lord and He heard me and delivered me from all my fears.. The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry. –Psalm 34:4, 15
In You, O Lord, do I hope, You will answer, O Lord my God.-Psalm 38:15
The Lord is near to me and all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him sincerely and in truth. He will fulfill the desires of those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him; He also will hear their cry and will save them. –Psalm 149:18-19
I seek, inquire for, and require the Lord while He may be found; I call upon Him while He is near. -Isaiah 55:6
I always pray, I don’t faint, quit or give up. –Luke 18:1
The Holy Spirit comes to my aid and bears me in my weakness; for I do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as I ought, but the Spirit goes to meet my supplication and pleads in my behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.-Romans 8:26
I will fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace that I may receive mercy (for my failures), and find grace to help in good time for every need (appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when I need it). –Hebrews 4:16
