"Prayer is not a spiritual luxury."
A consistent prayer life:
- teaches us absolute and utter dependence on God
- weeds out our selfish desires
- teaches perseverance
You can listen to the 28th sermon in the Colossians series online:
Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison—that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak. Colossians 4:2-4 ESV
