CONCLUSION

From Biblical view, we can’t but neglect the important role prayers played in the life of a believer. Jesus Christ, who as Christians we are expected to follow, started with prayers and ended with prayers. A prayerless Christian can’t go far with God. To know the mind of God towards you as a believer, you needed to create time for him in our personal space in order for him to come in and build friendship and fellowship with us. Plans for all aspects of life, nation, family etc. are revealed during prayers. God doesn’t neglect his very own and revelations are revealed during your personal time with him. We should make prayer a lifestyle and building a prayer altar can help one to achieve this.
