How long has it been since you prayed? The bible encourages us to pray without ceasing. Do you pray on a regular basis or only when you are confronted with a problem?
As a Christian, it is vital to pray to God on a regular basis. It doesn’t have to be a long prayer; you can pray to God in less than two minutes.
Prayer gives us peace, encouragement, and direction in our lives. So, you must make it a point to say a prayer at the beginning and end of each day.
If you are not sure of what to say when you pray, here are some daily prayers you can use.
