Psalm 32:6 “Let the faithful pray to You…”

Prayer…it’s not just for Sunday mornings in a corporate setting, or with the gathered Prayer Meeting, or with the Bible Study we’re part of. Prayer is as important one on one with the Lord as with a congregational setting on Sunday mornings. In fact, to Charles Spurgeon, individual prayer was far more important than any group prayer. To quote him, “Neglect of private prayer is the locust which devours the strength of the Church.” Just think of it, lack of private prayer on a regular basis by us is eating away at the very fabric of the Body of Believers we are part of. Is it a surprise then when we wonder why our Church isn’t thriving? Romans 12:12 tells that we need to be faithful in prayer, which is being steadfast in a all-important discipline of Christian life. We must then be not only praying daily for our individual needs but for our Church, the Pastoral Staff, the programs, and the congregation. And as we do, Proverbs 15:8 reminds us, “The prayer of the upright pleases God.”
