Prayer connects us with God.
"Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4:16
Prayer brings pleasure to God.
"The prayer of the upright is His delight." Proverbs 15:18
Prayer must be with the right heart attitude.
"You do not have because you do not ask, you ask and do not receive, because you ask with the wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures."
Prayer is answered by God.
"Call to me, and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know." Jeremiah 33:3
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you..." Matthew 7:7
Prayer is the believer's conversation with God.
"Prayer is simply talking to God. He is not so concerned with the words you use, as he is with the attitude of your heart." Bill Bright, Founder & Chairman of Campus Crusade for Christ
