What does it means to pray and what the ‘Bible’ say about prayers

Prayer is a fundamental part of our communication with God. We show our respect by praying to God for salvation and shedding of Jesus blood, forgiveness, comfort, love, prayers honours God.

Our prayers to the Almighty God is also the manner in which we make a request, thank God for all the bountiful things he has given to our lives. Thank him through our prayers even in times of sorrow.

The Bible defines prayers in many ways as in Philippians 4:6 – Be careful about nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Ephesians 6:18 – Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Matthew 6:9-13 9 After this manner, therefore, pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as [it is] in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Matthew 6:5-8 5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites [are]: for they love to pray standing, in the synagogues and the corners of the streets, that they may be, seen of men. Verily I say unto you; They have their reward. 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. 7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [do]: for they think that they shall be, heard for their much speaking. 8 Be not ye, therefore, like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye need of before ye ask him.

Mighty God, I revel in your holy name, I pray for forgiveness, that you will continue to comfort and keep me safe, look down upon all your children and make them whole again, in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
