Prayer is not just a one-way telegram to the Great I Am. Prayer does bring one closer to God, but it also brings people closer to each other to experience the Almighty’s Glory.To pray to God is not making a wish list to Santa Claus.
To pray to God is asking for His aid on a daily basis
and living with a strong trust in Him.
Prayer brings people closer together particularly during times of crisis. Yeah, word spreads at work, school, or in the slow pitch softball league, but nothing gets people together quite like through the church. The gestures, gifts, and time offered by fellow congregants are always sincere in nature and it just feels different than the sympathy offered at secular venues.
