~ PRAYER MINISTRY ~
Prayer is one of the most important parts of our relationship with God. Sometimes people find it awkward to pray, they are not sure what to say or how to say it. Generally this is because they have not developed a prayer life of their own or have a misunderstanding of prayer in general.
One must understand that prayer is for our benefit. God wants us to pray to Him but God does not need us to tell Him anything - He already knows! Prayer gives us an opportunity to communicate with God. We can express our needs, our wants, our concerns, our frustrations, our doubts, our love, our confessions, our praise, and our thanksgivings. Not only can we do this for ourselves but for others as well. We see the best example of this in Jesus. In John 17, Jesus prays for Himself, His disciples and then for all that will be His followers in the future.
