The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. (Psalm 145:18)
Prayer is part of our vital communication with our awesome God. In prayer we ask God for forgiveness for the things in our lives that are spoiling our relationship with Him. We praise Him for who He is and thank Him for all He does for us. We also bring our requests to Him for our world, our country, our community, our churches, our families and ourselves.
The Bible tells us,
'This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.'
