13 Reasons to Pray

Why don’t more people pray? Well where do we start? Many people simply don’t understand what prayer is really all about. Others have tried it and it hasn’t seemed to work so they think it’s a waste of time. Still others say they ‘just don’t have the time.’ This week allow me to share with you 13 good reasons to pray:

  1. Prayer opens the door to the secrets of God
    Jeremiah 33:3, 1 Corinthians 2:9-10
  2. Prayer puts our lives at peace with God and sets a place for us in eternity
    Romans 10:9-10
  3. Prayer changes our destiny and restores our nations
    2 Chronicles 7:14
  4. Prayer helps us to find (and keeps us in) the will of God
    Colossians 4:12
  5. Prayer gives us boldness
    Acts 4:31
  6. Prayer and fasting gives you supernatural power over demonic forces
    Matthew 17:21
  7. Prayer protects our families, blesses men and keeps worldly and godly authorities in order
    1 Timothy 2:1-2
  8. Prayer keeps us from temptations
    Matthew 6:13, 26:41
  9. Prayer is our path to perfect peace and our substitute for anxiety
    Philippians 4:6-7, Isaiah 26:3
  10. Prayer is God’s will
    1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
  11. Prayer makes good what we eat!
    1 Timothy 4:5
  12. Prayer heals our physical bodies
    James 5:15
  13. Prayer gives us strength and wisdom to handle our enemies
    Psalm 109:3-4

This list is not exhaustive. So much of our future is rooted in the instruction our spirits receive from God and the direction we take from there. “In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths” Proverbs 3:6

God bless and protect
