Why I Pray

I pray
because He tells me
to bring my requests to Him!
"If any one of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. " (James 1:5)
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." (Phil 4:6)
"Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened." (Matt. 7:7-8)
I pray
because He is my source
of life and strength!
"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He wil not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youth gro tired and weary, adn young men stumble and fall; but those who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint. (Is. 40:28-31)
I pray
because prayer changes things!
"The prayers of the Christian are secret, but their effects can not be hidden." (Howard Robbins)
"The prayers a righteous (wo)man are powerful and effective." (Jame 5:16)
"If you ask anything in my name, I will do it." -Jesus (John 14:14)
