What is the purpose of prayer?


Have you ever stopped to actually consider what the purpose of prayer is? Some would say it’s as simple as talking to God like having a chat with your best friend…  which it is.  But prayer is also so much more. I wonder if we sell ourselves short of the true power and purpose of prayer because we fail to see the big picture plans of God.

Remember the original design and purpose of mankind was the exercise the authority of the kingdom of heaven on earth.  We lost our position in the fall, handing over authority to Satan through his deceptive temptation.  But Jesus came to restore us back into the rightful place of authority in him. Prayer is a way of exercising that authority and partnering with God to see his kingdom purposes established on earth.

This teaching was the introductory session of a Prayer Masterclass at my home church.
