Prayer is a beautiful connection with God and a powerful weapon not just a religious act. “The prayers of the righteous are strong and effective”. (James 5:16 NIV) In Matthew 7 it mentions that if we ask, it will be given to us, seek and we will find. God welcomes us to come to him.
“If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” (John 15:7 NIV)
