It wouldn’t surprise most that prayer is a necessary aspect to our journey of faith in Christ. But why? Prayer is necessary because it increases our faith in the God who heals, restores and saves. When we pray to the Lord in the name of Jesus Christ, we are acknowledging our willful submission to God. In other words — “I don’t have this, so help!”
Prayer is an active process that appeals to God in a posture that reflects our dependence on Him, thus increasing our faith in His sovereignty. The goal in the journey of faith is not to treat prayer as a secondary response to the critical, painful, or fearful moments of life, but rather a natural response in every moment.
