Prayer is speaking to God. Prayer is talking to the Heavenly Father. It is having
fellowship with Him and expressing our hearts to Him. Prayer is saying to God that we
believe Him, that we trust and love Him. Prayer is expressing love to God through the
words of our faith. Prayer is exercising, too, the spiritual authority God has given us and
speaking to situations to conform to God's Word. Prayer is the most powerful weapon our
faithful and mighty God has given us. So let us pray and believe and receive in the name
of Jesus our Lord and Savior. Pray with the Scripture in your mouth. Pray to God the
Father in the name of Jesus the Son of God. Pray without ceasing. Praying with the
assistance of the Spirit. Pray and God will hear and answer. Pray and you will see the
healings and miracles and signs and wonders you are asking for. Pray and will we be
abundantly supplied by his grace.
