Quiet Time:Why Pray

Why Pray?
No surrender
   Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart. - Luke 18:1

    (1)     Jesus said, “Men always ought to pray”.   
                       You are commanded to pray
a.      (Matt. 26:41)  Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.
b.      In the Matthew 26:41, Jesus gives us a twofold warning.
                                                               i.      Keep watching: Temptation strikes us where we are most vulnerable so must stay alert and on guard against our particular weaknesses.
                                                             ii.      Keep praying: we are not alone. God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1)

Prayer is good for your heart

This and the following blogs on prayer originate from my daily quiet time, our neighborhood small group bible study, and Christian Life Master Outline study guide
