What do these Bible verses teach us?
The command to pray without ceasing is just one of the things we learn in these Bible verses on prayer. We also discover that God wants Christians to talk to him and ask him for the things they need.
Even Jesus prayed and taught us how to pray, suggesting we simply ask for what we need without any necessity of long wordy prayers for God to hear us.
When we do pray to God, we learn that we must ask in sincere faith, believing that God will hear us and answer our prayers. In addition, these passages instruct us that our prayers must be according to God’s will to be granted. And we also must be living a godly life to be heard. Even when we don’t know what to pray, one verse above tells us the Holy Spirit will intercede for us.
