“Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer.” —Psalm 61:1

The Bible talks much about prayer. Prayer allows us to communicate with our heavenly Father, giving us immediate access to divine wisdom, comfort, and grace (James 1:5, Psalm 34:17, Hebrews 4:16). It anchors our hearts and minds to eternal truth—something especially precious given the times we live in.

The deepest longings of a Spirit-filled heart flow out in prayer, and there are five reasons found in Scripture for why we need to pray.

  1. Prayer is commanded (Colossians 4:2)
  2. Prayer keeps us from sinning (Matthew 26:41)
  3. Prayer gives glory to God (Romans 8:26)
  4. Prayer aligns us with God’s purposes (Luke 18:1)
  5. Prayer results in answers (1 John 5:14–15)

The Bible is clear about the importance of prayer. Ephesians 6:18 tells us to pray “for all the saints,” and 1 Timothy 2:1–4 extends that to include “all people.” To that end, we are looking forward to another Day of Prayer on April 17. Join our church family in the Tower Basement, anytime from 6:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m., as we come before the Lord in prayer.
