Prayer. Itâ€™s one of our ten ministry commitments. Itâ€™s the expression of our dependence on God, the privilege of our adoption as sons and daughters, the bold access we have to Godâ€™s throne, the power ordinary people have to move Godâ€™s mighty hand, the worry killer, and the unceasing activity of the obedient Christian. Yet for something so essential, itâ€™s also something we struggle to do meaningfully and consistently. I know that in part because I know me. It seems like my prayer life flounders when I donâ€™t consider why I should pray and how.
