Prayer is a means of grace. A “means of grace” is a practice, ritual, place, or object that provides access to the power and presence of God. Prayer is a practice that opens our hearts to the power of God’s love that heals and forms our character, damaged by sin, into the image of Christ. In prayer we make ourselves available to God and God’s love.
To understand the purpose and power of prayer we need to understand that faith is a relationship with God who comes to us in the person of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. Prayer is the way God gives us to regularly communicate with him. Like any important relationship we need to open our hearts and lives to our beloved through frequent, honest communication. If a relationship is important, then we desire frequent, intimate face-to-face conversation. Prayer is how we open ourselves to God and make ourselves available to his love. It’s how his love can become our love. Prayer is how we become channels of God’s love for the world.
