The central part of any relationship is communication. It is true on a human level, so what kind of relationship do two people have who never talk with each other?
In a greater way, our relationship with God involves communication, not just an occasional brief chat, but a deep sharing of ourselves and our concerns with God because Christ has opened Heaven’s door for us. The bible says, we should ”approach the throne of Grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need”. (Hebrews 4:16)
In the Holy Bible God speaks to us, in prayer we speak to God. Both are essential and both are gifts God has given to us so we can know each other. Prayer is a gift from the Almighty God. Just as much as the Bible, He has given us the privilege of prayer because He love us so dearly and wants our fellowship.
Psalm 66:19 says “certainly God has heard me, He has attended to the voice of my prayer.”
