Salvation restores our broken relationship with God and prayer strengthens that relationship. As humans, we can’t live without oxygen and as believers, we can’t live without prayer. Prayer is communion, talking with and listening to God, enjoying His presence and intimacy with God. We ought to steadfastly devote ourselves to God’s Word, to fellowship, and to prayer (Acts 2:42). When we pray, we are exercising and building up our faith muscles. As we cry out earnestly to God in our time of need, we know God’s ears are attentive to our prayers. He will deliver and rescue us from all our troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and He saves those who are crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:15-20). Therefore, let’s prioritize to set aside time daily for prayer because it is the most vital privilege bestowed upon every follower of Jesus for both good and bad times. Therefore, let’s make every effort to attend every prayer service at our home church.
