One of the most popular songs this past year spoke of the need to pray each day just to make it through. Of course, it isn't only in 1992 that people have felt the need to turn to God in prayer to meet the challenges of daily life. And even though contemporary society has often been characterized as increasingly secular, a recent study found that 94 percent of the people living in the United States believe in God, and 90 percent believe in prayer.
From the very beginning of the Bible, prayer is established as integral to healing: "Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children." Then later, in the New Testament, Christ Jesus brings to light more about the nature of genuine prayer. Many times in the Gospels we read Jesus' words "The kingdom of heaven is like. ..," followed by insight about God and prayer. His words "After this manner therefore pray ye" precede what people call the Lord's Prayer, the prayer most dear to a Christian's heart.
