Prayer is something most believers take for granted. There should be no need to do a study to convince believers that praying is something they should do on a regular basis. However, when we get into a bit more detail, we still find a lot of varying positions and teachings on specific dimensions of prayer. With this study we focus on what the Scriptures teach us about prayer. We look at some of the reasons for praying and what the outcome of prayer is. Can we see what YHVH wants from us in prayer?
