SEVEN REASONS TO PRAY TODAY


Even though God knows all our needs, scripture stresses the necessity of prayer. Here are seven reasons why we are urged to pray regularly.

1.      Prayer connects us to God and God’s power. Changes take place when we pray. Sometimes the issue is transformed; other times we are the ones changed. Either way, God’s power is at work.

2.      Prayer is a way of sharing our burden. Some problems are difficult to share with another human being. The issue may involve deep guilt or shame, making it difficult to confide in a friend. In such cases, prayer can help ease the burden

3.      Prayer puts into words what troubles us. No difficulty can be resolved until it is identified and articulated

4.      Prayer reduces feelings of helplessness. Rather than feeling life is out of control, when we pray, we take the first step in reclaiming our lives and putting order into chaos.

5.      Prayer is a powerful reminder we are not alone. Life’s troubles often leave us feeling isolated, lonely, and vulnerable. Prayer reminds us that we are not facing difficulty alone.

6.      Prayer generates courage; we become fortified, strengthened, and more confident as a result of prayer.



7.      Prayer provides us with a sense of direction, rather than merely being tossed about on life’s sea, we receive insight, guidance and direction from prayer
