Wednesday Prayer – #6

“The purpose of prayer is not simply to draw up one’s requests and praises and present them in an acceptable fashion to God. It is not simply to become aware of God’s answers and guidance. God doesn’t instruct us to pray without ceasing just so he can easily send us revised directions whenever needed.

“The purpose of prayer goes deeper than that. Prayer is a way to maintain constant communion with God the Father and God the Son through God the Holy Spirit. It is the means of living out the intense relationship Jesus described in John 15:5-8.”
