Do I Need To Pray Each Day?
Please contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.
Since I became a Christian in 1986, I have made it a priority to pray each day. No matter if my prayers lasted for only a couple of minutes or extended to twenty minutes, what truly mattered was that I spent time communicating with God. Face it, everyone eats physical food each day to stay alive, so why would someone ask the question of whether or not to have spiritual food with God’s word each day? It is abundantly clear that God desires a genuine relationship with us, just like the deep bond we share with our best friends. And so, following His guidance and prompting, I wholeheartedly embraced the habit of daily prayer, for which I am immensely grateful every morning.
If you desire to cultivate this habit of prayer as well, take it slow and keep it simple – even starting with just one or two minutes of prayer can make an incredible difference in your life and bring you closer to God! As I have discovered along my journey, regularly setting aside time for prayer usually in the same place proves to be incredibly wise. In due course, you will find yourself naturally wanting to increase the duration of your prayers as they become an integral part of your life – a newfound good habit that bears abundant fruit over time. ~ Bill Greguska
Matthew 26:41 “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Pray Each Day ~ We’re In A War ~ What is Prayer?
Pray Each Day!
If you do pray, that is awesome, although if you do not pray, I would wonder why not. I am not trying to shame you or make you feel bad; I would wonder why not. Prayer is a beautiful thing because it is talking to God. The best way to figure out this crazy world we live in is by getting wise counsel and direction on how to live.
I pray each day when I wake up. I used to wait until later in the day, but I often forgot or became too busy. We need to give priority to the right things. If we don’t, we will find ourselves drifting away from God and giving the devil the chance to influence us.
We Encourage You To Pray Each Day!
If you decide to start to pray each day and then forget or are too busy one day, do not beat yourself up and feel guilty; get right back at it the following day.
God does not keep a scorecard, and you do not get any bonus points when you pray a certain number of times.
Praying to God is something that I guarantee when you start to do it regularly, you will enjoy it and want to pray each day!
When you pray to God, there are usually three answers to your prayers:
2. Not Yet
3. I Have Something Better In Mind

Do you need the power of prayer? If you keep praying, you will find out why! Prayer is like a bridge to God! It is the link between your world and God’s world. It is the bridge between what’s going on in your life and God’s care and love for you in the middle of whatever you’re going through in your life.
I need prayer, not only when things get complicated! Prayer has everything to do with my relationship with God. When I start my day by talking to Him, I start my day on the right foot! For many of my friends and me, facing the start of the day with prayer and some quiet time with God has been beneficial. In all relationships, communication is critical. Well, the same applies to your relationship with God.
