The Bible clearly invites believers to gather regularly in prayer not only in a time of challenge as in (2 Chron 7:14), “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My Face…”), but it was a pivotal part of the spiritual expression of the early church. (Acts 2:42); “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in prayers”.
Adoration is the worship of God for Who He really is. We adore God through our words, in prayers, songs and by our conduct and lifestyle. The Father is seeking true worshippers who will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. (John 4:23).
Jesus taught His disciples to pray always and to pray for God’s Kingdom to be made manifest here on earth as it is already in heaven. Prayer really changes things, for the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous person avails much. (James 5:16)
To hope in God is to anticipate or to expect good from God in every arena of our lives. Unlike hope in the world, hope in God does not disappoint, and is certain as it is rooted in the unchanging and unfailing nature of Who God is. (Romans 5:5; 15:13).
