The answer would be: YES, ABSOLUTELY! Prayer is very important. It is the way we talk to God, it is our communication with Him! If we don't pray , we are not communicating with God. Prayer is absolutely necessary for maintaining a relationship with God. No prayer, No healthy relationship with God! You can have a friendship with someone you don't talk to. He wants us to share our feelings, hurts, failures, and hopes with Him! Prayer is something I struggle with doing consistently. I know I don't pray enough, but I also know that God can help me pray more!
