“In that day, you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I will ask the Father on your behalf; for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came from God.” (John 16:26)
“The point of prayer is not to get answers from God, but to have perfect and complete oneness with Him. When you begin to see your need or the need on earth as He does, you will pray according to His will. When you seem to have no answer, there is always a reason. God uses these times to give you deep personal instruction, and it is not for anyone else but you” - Charles Spurgeon.
Prayer in the life of the believer aligns our hearts and minds to our Savior so that we, too, are about the Father’s business.

“No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.” (John 15:15)
“Prayer is a walkie-talkie from the battle zone to headquarters during wartime. Prayer malfunctions when we use it like it’s an intercom to call upstairs for more comforts downstairs” - John Piper, Let the Nations Be Glad

“On the day I called You answered me; You made me bold with strength in my soul.” (Psalm 138:3)
“But You, O LORD, are a shield abut me, my glory, and the lifter of my head. I cried aloud to the LORD, and He answered me from His holy hill. I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the LORD sustained me. I will not be afraid…” (Psalm 3:3-6a)
“Because Your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise You.” (Psalm 63:3)
“I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me, and You have become my salvation.” (Psalm 118:21)
Prayer in the life of the believer provides us with a true source of hope, comfort, and peace in this life.
“…that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:17b-19)
“This is love; not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” (1 John 4:19)
““See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God. And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.” (1 John 3:1)
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: ‘For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, not any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:35-39)
