According to the Scriptures, prayer has a direct and immediate impact on the battles of life. We must learn to make prayer a regular part of our lives.
“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace...”
Seek the LORD and his strength, seek His face continually.
I Chronicles 16:11
Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: You have enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.
The LORD is near to all them that call on Him, to all that call on him in truth.
The LORD is far from the wicked: but He hears the prayer of the righteous.
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father which is in Heaven give good things to them that ask Him?
If you abide in Me, and My Words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
So Jesus answered and said to them, have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea’, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in Heaven. Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in Heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.
Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My Name, He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My Name. Ask, and you will receive that your joy may be full.
Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Seeing then that we have a great High Priest, that is passed into the Heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands...
I Timothy 2:8
Pray without ceasing.
I Thessalonians 5:17
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart.
The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
I John 1:9
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
I John 5:14-15
