“Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth,” David wrote (Psalm 54:2). This sentiment is repeated throughout the psalms and the entire canon of Scripture as God’s people call out to him, uttering words of praise, confessing sin, seeking help, or expressing gratitude. In Matthew 6, Jesus taught his followers to pray using the Lord’s Prayer, a model that Christians around the world continue to use in both corporate and individual prayer. In other instances in Scripture, prayer is quiet and wordless—a time of stillness and listening to the Lord. Prayer is a central discipline of the Christian life; it is something Christians can do “continually” (1 Thess. 5:17) and “with all kinds of prayers” (Eph. 6:18) as we seek God and grow in intimacy with him.
