Prayer is the most powerful weapon God has given man. It connects you to His throne, it connects you to Heaven and it connects you directly to Him! It is important because it is how you communicate to your Heavenly Father and it is how you activate the spiritual realm to ACTon your behalf. When you open your mouth and get on your knees to pray, the devil is literally afraid! It is indeed that powerful!
