Christians are able to pray directly to God because he is our father – not in a physical sense, but in a spiritual sense. The bible explains it like this: “To all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, children born not of natural descent nor of human decision … but born of God” (John 1:12-13).
So we pray to God because he is our father and we are his children. We do not pray out of obligation or fear, but because we know he loves us and we love him. Prayer is an expression of our living relationship and our spiritual fellowship with God.
Prayer is the foundation of everything we do as Christians. We can pray anywhere, anytime. God is always listening, and does answer our prayers. We do find it helpful, though, to meet with other Christians to pray together.
If you are hungry and thirsty for more of God in your life and the life of the church – join with us for a dynamic time of prayer.
