Because God expects it. Jesus said ,”When you pray.”
Because it is the way to communicate with our Heavenly Father.
Because Jesus prayed. It was a priority. It says that Jesus often got away and prayed. One of his last sentences on the cross was a prayer.” Father forgive them for they know not what they do.”
Because throughout the history of the church, it has been a priority, a necessity.
When the church fails to pray the church suffers, society suffers, families suffer, individuals suffer.
Mother Teresa said this,” The more you pray, the easier it becomes. The easier it becomes,, the more you pray.
