When Jesus sent His disciples ahead of Him into the cities He was about to visit one of the first things He told them to do was pray. Jesus is found constantly in prayer and getting away to pray. Pray must be the first thing we do. We can’t do anything without prayer. Prayer must be a vital part of everything we do.
We are encouraged all throughout Scripture to pray for others (even our enemies), pray for guidance, intercede for the lost, and healing for the sick. Jesus even had a habit of prayer. If we want to do the work of the Lord we have to pray.
