Leading a life of a believer, it’s highly essential that we communicate to God regularly on a daily basis through prayer, just like how a wife and husband should communicate to build and sustain a successful marriage. It’s a fact that many Christians lack the prayer life either because what they are trusting God for has not yet manifested which should not be sole basis of your prayer life anyway.
Just to encourage you to build a desire to pray I will suggest you read, study and meditate on Luke 18, verse 1 to 8.
Luke 18 – The Parable of the Unjust Judge
And he (Jesus) told them a parable to show that they must always pray and not be discouraged, 2 saying, “There was a certain judge in a certain town who did not fear God and did not respect people. 3 And there was a widow in that town, and she kept coming to him, saying, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary!’ 4 And he was not willing for a time, but after these things he said to himself, ‘Even if I do not fear God or respect people, 5 yet because this widow is causing trouble for me, I will grant her justice, so that she does not wear me down in the end by her coming back!’” 6 And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unrighteous judge is saying! 7 And will not God surely see to it that justice is done to his chosen ones who cry out to him day and night, and will he delay toward them? 8 I tell you that he will see to it that justice is done for them soon! Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, then will he find faith on earth?”
