The discipline of prayer is the intimate pursuit and practice of the personal communication we have available between God and Us.
It is spoken and unspoken confession of Christian faith by engaging and proclaiming our complete dependence on Christ as Lord over our lives. Prayer is not just a selfish wish list to get God to cater to our needs and whims; rather, it’s true purpose and the reason is also a perseverance, and maturity.
Prayer is meant to line us up in Christ and to confirm us to Him, so it builds us up in Him. It’s makes us willing and able to express praise, worship, seek forgiveness from God, become more sensitive, confess sins, make petitions for one another, and help others to be shaped too.
