PRAYER OF YOUR HEART

Why do Christians pray to God?

Christianity uniquely emphasises that a Christian can have a personal relationship with God. We should regard prayer as being the talking part of the relationship and a two way process at that. Jesus himself set down the model prayer for all Christians:

“This is how you are to pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and do not subject us to the final test, but deliver us from the evil one” (Matthew 6:9-13).

Prayer has the benefit of drawing us into a deeper relationship with God – as we pray we learn more about his will for our lives.
