PRAYER IF THE MOST POWERFUL THING IN A PERSON’S LIFE.  THE BEST WAY TO BECOME CLOSER TO GOD IS PRAYER.  PRAY EVERYDAY, PRAY OFTEN, PRAY WITHOUT CEASING, PRAY SEVERAL TIMES A DAY.  WHY PRAY?  JUST THINK HOW ARE YOU GOING TO BECOME CLOSER TO GOD OR BECOME A FRIEND OF GOD WITHOUT TALKING TO HIM.  DO YOU TALK TO YOUR FRIENDS EVERYDAY.  I MEAN THE CLOSE ONES.  YOU SEEK THEIR ADVICE, YOU SEEK THEIR COMPANY AND YOU JUST WANT SOMEONE TO TALK TO.
BUT JUST IMAGINE, YOU CAN HAVE A FRIEND THAT STICKS CLOSER TO YOU THAN A BROTHER.  YOU AND YOUR BROTHER MAY HAVE ARGUMENTS OR DISAGREE OR THEY JUST DON’T CARE ENOUGH ABOUT YOU TO CALL WHEN YOU NEED COMFORT.    NOONE REALLY CARES AS MUCH AS GOD DOES FOR YOU.  HE KNOWS YOUR WEAKNESS AND KNOWS YOUR PAIN AND HE CARES.  1 PETER 5:7 SAYS, CASTING ALL YOUR CARES UPON HIM; FOR HE CARETH FOR YOU.
LET ME ASK YOU SOMETHING.  WOULD YOUR BROTHER LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR YOU.  JESUS DID.  GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN THAN THIS, THAT A MAN LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS, JOHN 15:13.  SO GET TO KNOW HIM THROUGH PRAYER.
PRAYER CAN OPEN GREAT DOORS FOR YOU.  SOME DOORS THAT YOU DON’T ASK FOR, BUT ARE BLESSINGS WHEN THEY DO.  PRAYER CAN HEAL THOSE THAT ARE SICK.  PRAYER CAN GIVE COMFORT TO THOSE THAT ARE HURTING.  PRAYER CAN CALM THOSE WHO ARE AFRAID. IF WE REALIZE WHO IS IN CONTROL.  GOD IS IN CONTROL, NOT US.
