Praying is the single most important thing a person can do every day of their life because when we talk to God, He Says:
- While you are still speaking I will hear your prayer. Isaiah 65:24
- Ask Me and it shall be given to you. Matthew 7:7-11
- When 2 people pray together in My Name, I Am with them. Matthew 18:20
How should we pray?
And Jesus's disciples asked Him how to Pray and Jesus replied, "When you pray say:
Who 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 trespasses as we forgive those that trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is The Kingdom The Power and The Glory forever and ever.
In your precious Son Jesus Christ Name,
Amen." Matthew 6:9-13
