Prayer is the language

Prayer is powerful, Prayer is personal, Prayer is passionate, and Prayer is practical. Perhaps the most neglected event in the Christians life is prayer! Without Prayer we are anemic, we are ordinary, we are apathetic, and we are irrational.

The Bible emphasizes prayer over and over again. Why neglect something spoken of so often in scripture?

 

No Time For Prayer:

 

I woke up late, no time to pray, I hurried off to school. I failed to take advantage of this important tool. Throughout the day I ran about, I had no time to kneel. When dinner came, I failed again, to thank God for my meal.
When day was done, I went to bed, to get the rest I needed. But once again the Bible’s call for prayer was left unheeded. One busy day my soul was called, to answer for my deeds; And as I stood, I realized I had denied its needs. My name was called, and I stepped up to hear my sentence quote; Yet all I got, to my surprise, was a little paper note; And on this parchment God had written a message, oh, so true. “You always failed to talk to me, why should I speak to you?” -Anonymous
