Why we pray

Prayer is integral and indispensable to the Christian life. As Matthew Henry said, “You may as well find a living man without breath, as a living Christian without prayer.” Prayer is essential to our spiritual life as individuals and as a church. We pray according to God’s Word and are led by His Holy Spirit. 

Though in its beginnings prayer is so simple that the feeblest child can pray, it is at the same time the highest and holiest work to which man can rise. Prayer is fellowship with the Unseen and Most Holy One. The powers of the eternal world have been placed at prayer’s disposal. It is the very essence of true religion and the channel of all blessings. It is the secret of power and life not only for ourselves, but for others, for the church, and for the world. It is to prayer that God has given the right to take hold of Him and His strength.
-With Christ in the School of Prayer, Andrew Murray
