THERE ARE SEVERAL BENEFITS TO PRAYER

PRAYER WORKS

Reduces Stress

When we lay our troubles at God’s feet, we can feel the weight of the world come off of our shoulders.

John 14:27  “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

 Offers Us Hope

When we get down in the dumps, prayer gives us hope.  Laying all of our problems at God’s feet opens us up to trusting Him. When we trust God, we have hope that things will turn out fine.  It doesn’t mean that everything Is perfect, but it keeps us focused on what is possible with God.  

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Can Make You Healthier

There are a number of studies out there that show a link between prayer and emotional and physical health.  Some studies showed a significant decrease in heart disease, emphysema and cirrhosis of the liver for people who attended church once or more a week.  Other studies show worship was linked to lower blood pressure and a strengthening of the immune system.

3 John 1:2 Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well

with you, even as your soul is getting along well.

Improves Our Attitude

Humility is a huge part of our faith, and prayer allows us to be humbled daily.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
