I Commit to Jesus
Matthew 6:7-13

Prayer is key in our relationship with Christ. Communication is key for any relationship; prayer is our communication with God and one of the ways he chooses to communicate with us. Praying regularly allows us to see and confess our sin and to pray on behalf of others who are in need, and it allows us to see the world a little more like God does so we can be part of what he is doing.

Prayer is a privilege. Prayer is our responsibility. Prayer is a tool. Prayer is a command. We must pray. Take some time today to pray. Evaluate your prayer life. How can you connect with God more through prayer? Are you praying with your spouse and family regularly?

I have been driven many times upon my knees by the
overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.
My own wisdom, and that of all about me,
seemed insufficient for the day.

—Abraham Lincoln
