Jesus said ‘when’ not if you pray.
“But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly (Matthew 6:6 NKJV).”
We gain entry into the Lord’s throne room; we pray.
“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16 NKJV).”
When burdened for others or self, we pray.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV).”
When at a loss for words, we pray.
“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God (Romans 8:26-27 NKJV).”
We ask; we pray.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you (Matthew 7:7 NKJV).”
Empowered, we pray; we prevail!
“The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much (James 5:16b NKJV).”
