Communication is a vital element in any successful relationship, including our relationship with God. He wants us to communicate with Him about our cares and concerns. He desires that we talk to Him about every area of our lives. This communication with God is called prayer.
Prayer is much more than words. It is an expression of the heart toward God. It is an experience, a relationship - not an activity. As a child of God, you are invited to come boldly before His throne. In Hebrews 4:14-16, the writer records:
"Since we have a great High Priest who has gone through the Heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us...then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in time of need."
Because the one to whom you pray is the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, you come into His presence with reverence. But He is also your loving, heavenly Father who cares for you. Therefore, you can enter into His presence with a relaxed, joyful heart, knowing that God loves you more than anyone else has ever loved you or will love you.
Since prayer is communication between two persons, it can also be described as a dialogue. Write a sentence about the part each of these have in a dialogue between the believer and God.
Read the following verses and explain why each step is necessary to having an effective prayer life
