Why Pray?

Prayer is a demonstration of a personal relationship with God. Making prayer part of your daily life can help perfect that relationship. Some prayers are long and elequoent and some are what I call SOS prayers, short and to the point. No matter how one prays, prayer is a personal form of communication where we can speak directly with our Father in Heaven. God knows you, and he loves you, yes, just as you are, just as I am, unperfect. He hears every prayer and in His time He answers them, always with wisdom, empathy, and compassion. Sometimes the answer is swift , direct and with no doubt,  but other times the message is wait, not yet, or we feel the answer does not come at all. Don't be discouraged, God does indeed hear our prayer.  We can go to our Father with desperate questions, with humble confessions, or with gratitude; we can pray to better understand Him and His plan for us.

In part our church covenant states - 

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember one another in prayer, to aid one another in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and Christian courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the rules of our Savior to secure it without delay.
