Prayer brings God’s power into everything that we do. We make our greatest mistake when we fail to pray. On the other hand, praying should be for more than just a quick fix in emergencies, a solution for problems, or for instant healing when we or our loved ones are sick and suffering.
We pray because we desire to know the heart of God and to understand His will. We claim promises to be one with Him and His purposes. We pray because it opens our eyes to the unfailing, unconditional love of God, and because in turn we learn to love Him. It is a foretaste of heaven and plants within us the desire for eternal life.
