Prayer is:
To answer this question, it is important that we should first examine the Greek word for ‘prayer’, as it is the main language that the New Testament was originally written in and translated from English.


The main Greek word used for prayer in the New Testament is ‘proseuche’ (pronounced pros-yoo-kay), which is made up of two words, ‘pros’ and ‘euche’.
Pros is a preposition and means toward or with (being with or close to) and denotes a sense of personal closeness and intimacy between two people.
Euche is a noun and means ‘a prayer of desire or passion, or a vow’.


Bearing this in mind. we now see that when the New Testament writers (under the power of the Holy Spirit) speak of prayer, it means to draw intimately near to God and verbally share with him your earnest desires and passions for whatever it is you want to talk to him about.


Prayer is intimate conversation between believers in Jesus, and God.
One on one prayer to God is designed to help a believer to build a close, intimate and personal relationship with the Father in Christ Jesus. It is talking to God and having a conversation with Him.


As a conversation between two people is a two-way stream, when we pray it is just as important for us to listen to what God has to say as well.............
