Why is Prayer Important?
Why is Prayer Important? Just as the Bible is important for teaching us about who Jesus is, what He has done for us and who we are in Him, so also is prayer a key part of building a deeper and abiding relationship with God. When we read the Bible, God speaks to us. When we pray, we speak to God. We know that we can pray directly to God and that He hears us. We long to hear God's voice. But do we also remember that God desires to hear our voices? The God of the universe, the omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent God of all creation invites us into His presence to speak to Him and share with Him all that is on our hearts. The Westminster Shorter Catechism answers the question, "What is the chief end of man?" with "To glorify God and to enjoy Him forever." Prayer is one way in which we can do both.
