"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us," Ephesians 3:20

As we conclude 10 days of praying, perhaps we might ask the question “why pray?” There are a number of compelling reasons to pray:

  • It is a way of serving and obeying God. We are commanded to pray and Jesus modelled prayer often (But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. Luke 5:16) and used prayer as a way of staying in the Father’s will (Luke 22:42).
  • Praying helps us discern the will of God in our decisions (Luke 6:12-13).
  • To ask for things according to God’s will. We may not always see the answer we want but James tells us sometimes we don’t receive because we don’t even bother to ask God (James 4:2-3).

Perhaps the most exciting reason to pray is to see the unexpected “but God” things in our lives. We pray because prayer demonstrates our faith in God and we know He is able to do more than we can even ask or imagine. Prayer plugs us into the power of God for our lives but also for others.

10 days of prayer is just an appetiser to the potential that the church has if we are willing to be a people of prayer. Let’s thank God today that we have the privilege of communicating our creator in a way that has the power to literally change the world!

Thank you for praying with us.
