Prayer can be defined as a Christian’s way of communicating with God. We pray to praise God and thank Him and tell Him how much we love Him. Prayer is not meditation or passive reflection; it is a direct commune with God. The following are scriptures backing my introduction.
In the morning You hear my voice, O Lord; in the morning I prepare [a prayer, a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait [for You to speak to my heart].
For He has not despised or abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither has He hidden His face from him, but when he cried to Him, He heard.
And call on Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall honor and glorify Me.
Evening and morning and at noon will I utter my complaint and moan and sigh, and He will hear my voice.
He shall regard the prayer of the destitute, And shall not despise their prayer.
For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem; You shall weep no more. He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry; When He hears it, He will answer you.
Seek, inquire for, and require the Lord while He may be found [claiming Him by necessity and by right]; call upon Him while He is near.
Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).
Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you.
For this reason, I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it].
1 Thessalonian 5:17
Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly].
Come close to God and He will come close to you. [Recognize that you are] sinners, get your soiled hands clean; [realize that you have been disloyal] wavering individuals with divided interests, and purify your hearts [of your spiritual adultery].
