Why Prayer Should Be Your Topmost Priority Today

Home / Blogs

It is without a doubt that prayer is essential for any individual. But have you ever wondered why? We continue to pray despite the delay in it being answered or even when we feel utterly helpless. How does this affect us in our faith? The Scripture shares that God has purposefully called us to pray (Colossians 4:2). When we pray, we obey that calling. And in every prayer, we know that God hears our prayers. Whether the answer is yes, no, or not now, we are called to pray, and we can be assured that God will answer. Regardless of the situation and how we deal with it, prayer is the only way out.

Many great people have confessed this: “There is power in prayer.” This is absolutely true and holds a lot of meaning. When we tell someone that we will pray for them, this then means that we are offering to open the conversation with God for them. Praying for others can be as comforting as praying for your burdens to be lessened.

Praying forms the essence of how we live. It acts as an invitation to build a longstanding relationship with God. So when we go to God in prayer, day or night, He is available.

The Bible tells us that we can be fully confident when we pray to God (1 John 5:14). And when we pray, we ought to pray for everyone. Not just the people whom we like. We are also called to pray for strangers and enemies with as much conviction as we would when we pray for family and friends. Regardless of who we pray for, we must hold onto faith when we pray, knowing in our hearts that He is a just and faithful God. 

So we know why Christians need to pray and how they should pray. Here are pointers that consolidate the emphasis we try to lay on pursuing a prayer-prioritized life:

  • Prayer opens us to indefinite communication with God.
  • Prayer strengthens our faith in God.
  • Prayer can actually help bring other people closer to God.
  • A blessing is a sincere act of obedience.
  • Prayer allows us to intercede on behalf of another person.
  • Prayer can show others the way to Christ.
  • Prayer brings us immense comfort and peace.
  • Prayer will enable us to hand over our concerns to God.
  • Prayer provides a way to show others that they can care for and be loved.
  • Prayer reminds us that we have nothing to worry about.

As Christians, we must be vigilant and pray fervently for fellow believers and those yet to be baptized. In these last days, it has become necessary for Christians to take everything around us in prayer. Our prayers can help strengthen the church and keep it intact for the second coming of our Lord.
