Prayer is both conversation and encounter with God. These two concepts give us a definition of prayer and a set of tools for deepening our prayer lives. The traditional forms of prayer-adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication- are concrete practices as well as profound experiences. Prayer, then, is both awe and intimacy, struggle and reality. These will not happen every time we pray, but each should be a major component of our prayer over the course of our lives. Tim Keller Author of Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God

We must be a church that prays.
I know of no better thermometer to your spiritual temperature than this, the measure of the intensity of your prayer-Charles Spurgeon
Remember, Christ’s scholars must study upon their knees- Charles Spurgeon
14 Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
25 Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. (ESV)
