5 Reasons Why We Should Pray

Prayer is not understood as it should be. There is power in prayer and when we pray it brings us into harmony with God, who is the source of all power. When we pray we should note that we are not informing God of something He does not already know, because He is God, and is acquainted with everything that concerns us.

Because prayer is so important it is beneficial to know how to pray effectively. We should be aware that God loves us and it is His will to help us. Therefore He asks us to come to Him in prayer and He will help us. God's appointed way to bless
Here are five reasons why it is important to pray:

Ask that you might receive
1. "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." (Matthew 7:7) In life, there will be difficulties, times when we will need help. We pray to make known our wants and to confess our wrongs also to present to Him His own promises.

 Help in trouble
2.  "And call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honour me."
(Psalm 50:15) We pray because we have a God whose ear is not closed to our requests; and if we prove His word, He will honour our faith.

He is not limited
3.  "And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son." (John 14:13) When we press our requests to God, we should not be afraid to ask, because God sees our inefficiency and He will help us. He has promised if we seek Him with the whole heart, He will be there for us.

Faith makes it happen
4.  You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it." Matthew 21:22) Humility is important when you come to God. God honours the humble but He resists the proud. Faith is defined as the substance of the things you hope for, evidence of things not seen. Exercise faith, trust God to do what he said He will, He is not a liar, what He says is what He will do.

It lessens your anxiety
5. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6)  It is important that we learn not to be anxious as He has the ability to help us with all our needs. Hence we should always be thankful, and learn to speak to our heart,  to speak in the language of faith. worthy of praise.Worthy of praise.

If any has lost faith let him seek God today through prayer. Say it according as it is, God knows the heart... Praise Him with your whole heart. He has promised that if you seek Him with the whole heart, He will be found. Be kind to yourself.
