Bible Texts on Prayer

The Bible offers encouragement for all areas of life, and prayer is no exception. Many people become discouraged when it seems that God is either not listening or not answering their prayers.

The Bible offers us reassurance that at all times God will hear and answer your prayers if you continue to believe.

It doesn't matter who you are, where you're from or what's going on in your life,
God will listen to your prayer.
