Follow In Jesus' Kneeprints and Pray (PrayerLife)

Masada, in Israel
The main reason I pray is because Jesus prayed. That's enough reason for me to pray.

I am a follower of Jesus.

Jesus prayed.

Therefore, I pray.

That's why prayer matters. Philip Yancey writes:

"When doubts creep in and I wonder whether prayer is a sanctified form of talking to myself, I remind myself that the Son of God, who had spoken worlds into being and sustains all that exists, felt a compelling need to pray. He prayed as if it made a difference, as if the time he devoted to prayer mattered every bit as much as the time he devoted to caring for people."
Yancey, Philip. Prayer, Kindle Locations 1453-1455)
