This week we will begin a three week study on prayer. The topics include, prayer, how to pray, and subjects of prayer.
Prayer is talking with God. God desires a personal relationship with His people. God wants us to come to Him with our praises, concerns, and requests. In response, God speaks to us through His word, other people, or even a still small voice.
This week we will look at an overview of prayer.
To whom do we pray? (Acts 12:5, John 14:13, Ephesians 6:18)
Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. (Acts 12:5)
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:13)
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; (Ephesians 6:18)
We are to pray to God the Father, in Jesus name, in the Spirit of God.
