WE ARE RESPONSIBLE TO KNOW HOW TO PRAY: PRAYER IS TALKING WITH GOD.
Luke 11:1 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.
I have always thought it interesting that the disciples didn't ask Jesus to teach them to preach, to teach or to perform miracles. While following Him they realized the importance of prayer and they asked Him to teach them to pray.
Many of us today want to find answers to spiritual questions without first learning the fundamentals of prayer. Our power comes from prayer. Our faith is increased by prayer. Our relationship with the Lord is strengthened by prayer. If Christians today are lacking in any area I believe that it is in the area of prayer.
When we pray we are talking, and should be listening to God. I personally believe that spiritual growth can never come until we have a strong prayer life.
You are responsible to learn how to pray.
