What is Prayer?  A Relationship

Prayer can be described using three critical components.  First, prayer is a relationship between our loving and caring heavenly Father and us, His children. God invites us to a personal relationship.  He desires a deeper, intimate relationship with us – Holy and Consecrated.

A relationship can be defined as “a state of connectedness between people (especially an emotional connection)” as suggested by www.vocabulary.com  This element of prayer is emphasized in James 4:8, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”

Prayer: Lord, deepen the relationship between us.  Grow our connectedness to one another as I intentionally spend time with you each day. Amen
