  1. What is the power of prayer? Prayer is an intricate part of Christianity.
  2. Seek clarity on the point, power, and perfect-ness of prayer
  3. What is prayer? Prayer is a tool.
  4. Anybody can pray, but to be able to pray effectively there is some skill and understanding of what God wants. James 4:3, Mark 11:23-25
  5. Prayer is a tool to do God’s work. He wants us to continue the process of perfecting in holiness. 1 Peter 1;15-16, Hebrews 12:14, 2 Cor. 7:1
  6. The journey to holiness requires work 1 Peter 1:16-17
  7. Could there be a better companion than God? I need to constantly choose to have companionship with God so he can continue His work in me
  8. God intends for prayer to be a tool that we consciously choose to use, to fellowship with God for the development of our relationship and for the completion of His purpose
  9. Prayer plays a major role in God rubbing off on us Proverbs 3:7, Matthew 12:24
  10. What are your prayers to God like? What’s in your heart? He wants our prayer according to His will
  11. When we ask things according to His will our prayers are answered positively
  12. Because it pleases God to see His children taking on a Christ-like paradigm.
  13. When I spend time with God, I learn God’s heart and ways. God will give you the desires of your heart! 1 Tim 2:1, 1 Tim 4:5
  14. Prayer-to meet a person, to meet and converse, to have intimate fellowship with the person
  15. Prayer is a tool used to accomplish God’s work
  16. When I spend time with God, His will and ways become my desires.
