The Importance of Prayer

Scripture Reading: Philippians 4:4-7Colossians 4:2-6  

Most people are fascinated by magic tricks, which are simply fantastic illusions.  What God is able to do and anything He purposes to accomplish in His Kingdom are never illusions.  And how He answers our prayers is no illusion.  When God's people commit to faithful prayer, the world will see God's power. 

To pray powerfully and effectively, we must first deal with sin in our lives.  We must turn and flee from sin, understanding that as God responds to our cries, people will give Him greater glory.

We must pray expectantly, knowing that God will ultimately change us.  Isaiah 65:24 says, "... before [you] call, I will answer ..."  God gave us prayer to connect us with His plan for our lives to make an impact on all creation!
