Prayer

We often confuse prayer to be a mode of communication in which we talk and God listens and then does what we desire! Yet prayer is much deeper and complex than that. It is really a two-way connection and interaction between us and God. Prayer's multifaceted forms range from simple dialogue to deep intercession on behalf of others. It pursues the understanding of where God is working and how we can come alongside him in his work.
