Prayer is simply a conversation between God and one or more of His people.We pray because God has commanded us to pray, and He promises to hear us. We pray in Jesus ' name because He presents our requests before His Father. Jesus even prayed for His disciples. In prayer we come before God in humility, realizing that we do not deserve anything we ask for, but also with confidence that He will, out of His love and grace, give to us exactly what we need, both physically and spiritually. In prayer we come before God as ones utterly dependent on Him. We admit our need by confessing our sins to Him. We thank and praise Him for who He is and what He has done for us. We present our special requests to Him. Prayer is an exercise of faith and hope in the God who promises to hear the cries of His people.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:6-7
