Together with reading the Word of God and meditating on it, prayer is one of the big three means of grace in a Christian’s life. It is essential to a Christian’s spiritual health, and without it, a Christian will soon find he or she is missing out on the nearness of God.
But we all know that truly consistent prayer is hard work — very hard work sometimes. We may do well for a season but soon find ourselves allowing the things of the world to distract us. In times like these, the best thing to do is to remember why we pray. The Bible has many encouragements for us to continue in consistent prayer.
