Importance of Prayer & Bible Reading

To care for our relationship with God more, we emphasize prayer and bible reading. This is an great daily discipline. World Praying Together encourages christians to spend more time with God each day. He tells us to read this his word in Ephesians 6:10-20.  To grow your christian life, also ask: how can I live my life more for you Lord! What other things can I change with you as boss of my life? Doing this will also improve our focus. We will make corrections and adjustment in our life for God. See 2 Timothy 3:16-17 and Phllippians 4:6. Prayer and Bible reading is also important spiritual warfare for ourselves and others against the Devil. This is for the glory of our Lord and Saviour Jesus the Christ.

All these things will help you grow and improve in: Godliness; knowledge; depth of insight; effectiveness; other-person centredness; love; joy; peace; patience; goodness; kindness; gentleness; faithfulness; self-control. See  Phillipians 1:9-11; Galatians 5:22-23. This is what The Lord wants us to do/be.

Praying for the community, all the people in your life, will bring the protection of God. Praying makes it easier for them to accept Jesus. Satan will have less of a hold on them. Praying is the best defence that communities and christians have. Praying is the also the best weapon a church has. The real Defence Force of a country is not the Military, but local christians praying. See all of 1 Samuel chapter 12. 1 Samuel 12:19-25. 1 Timothy 2:1-7.
