The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. -James 5:16
Jesus “So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed.” - Luke 5:16 Disciples “but we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” Acts 6:4 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. -Acts 2:42 WE DON’T FULLY REALIZE HOW IMPORTANT PRAYER IS
WE DON’T FULLY REALIZE HOW IMPORTANT PRAYER IS SIN 1 Behold, the L ORD ' S hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear. 2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear. 3 For your hands are defiled with blood, And your fingers with iniquity; Your lips have spoken lies, Your tongue has muttered perversity. 4 No one calls for justice, Nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies; They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity. Isaiah 59:1-4 “He who turns away his ear from listening to the law, Even his prayer is an abomination.” -Prov 28:9

FOLLOW THROUGH ON WHAT YOU PRAY FOR!
