Prayer is a vital part of our relationship with our Heavenly Father. If you were to ask any John Doe on the street to loan you $200, it is highly likely he would simply laugh. If, however, you were to approach someone of longstanding friendship—someone who knew that you were honest, honorable, and trustworthy, the odds of a loan being granted would increase exponentially. God wants His people to build a relationship with Him, to communicate with Him frequently, to trust Him and to recognize His sovereignty in our lives as did men such as Daniel, Abraham, and David. This is the only way to become equipped for spiritual warfare.
