But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
We need faith in God to pray effectively, and we can have this faith by cultivating faith in God by hearing, reading, and studying His word.
We also cultivate faith by praying in the Spirit.
The truth is, no matter the time in which we live, there is never a time when we do not need God's help, and therefore also need to pray.
Just remember nothing we can do will take the place that only God and prayer can fill our lives.
There is times we are driven to our knees in prayer to God because we have nowhere else to go. However we should pray not only when we feel driven to pray, but because we choose communion with God every day.
Love and Prayers, Trish
