Why do we focus on prayer? Scripture says to “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” (Romans 12:12) There are many scripture passages that stress the importance of prayer. Prayer is the building block to our relationship with Christ.
How can we say we know Christ if we don’t spend time with him?
📣Today’s challenge: Pray quietly for 30 minutes.
