14: “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us:”

15: “And if we know that He hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.”

What is Prayer?
Prayer is a means of communication and contact with your heavenly Father. Combined with faith in God’s Word, prayer is a channel through which and by which His power can be released to meet our needs, allowing Him to get involved in our circumstances.
Prayer is not just asking God for things. It’s far bigger and better than that.

At it’s deepest level, prayer is fellowship with God: Enjoying His Company, Waiting upon His Will, Thanking Him for His Mercies, Committing our lives to Him, Talking to Him about other people as well as ourselves, and listening in the silence for what He has to say to us.
