What Does That Mean: Prayer

Clarifying some biblical terms and common church lingo.


Communication is vital to the health of any relationship. As Christians, we communicate with God through prayer. Without it, we cannot grow and our relationships with God will not blossom. 

Our communication with God should not be one-sided. We can speak to him freely and sincerely with faith that he hears us. He speaks back to us through his word, his Spirit, and even through other people in our lives. The more we pursue him through his word, the more we’re able to hear his voice as he speaks to us. He never contradicts his word. 


Matthew 6:5-13

Colossians 4:2

1 Peter 4:7
