PRAYER SERVICES AND PRAYER GROUPS

The essence of prayer is simply talking to God as you would to a beloved friend. Because communion with God is so vital and prayer so effective in the fulfillment of God's plan, the enemy attempts constantly to introduce errors in our understanding of and commitment to prayer.

Alone with God – such an opportunity should be the Christian's one great desire. However, it is sad that so many believers spend brief amounts of time with Him, or don't go to Him at all, because they have so little to say.

For Christians, prayer is like breathing. You don't have to think to breathe because the atmosphere exerts pressure on your lungs and forces you to breathe. That's why it is more difficult to hold your breath than it is to breathe. Similarly, when you are born into the family of God, you enter into a spiritual atmosphere wherein God's presence and grace exert pressure, or influence, on your life. Prayer is the normal response to that pressure. As believers, we have all entered the divine atmosphere to breathe the air of prayer. Only then can you survive the darkness of the world.

Unfortunately, many believers hold their spiritual breaths for long periods, thinking brief moments with God are sufficient to allow them to survive. The fact is every believer must be continually in the presence of God, constantly breathing in His truths to be fully functionally.
