True, the Lord Jesus said, “…men ought always to pray and not to faint” (Luke 18:1), letting us know that prayer is a spiritual obligation for every believer. But that’s not all that God intended prayer to be.
So we know one of the reasons we pray is that the Lord Jesus said we should. Beyond that, however, we need to understand the subject of prayer; the things to pray about and how to pray about them. Prayer has its place in bringing God’s Word to pass in our lives.
