31 Scriptures About Prayer will remind you to stay ingrafted in Christ, your source of spiritual nourishment.

Prayer has to be ingrained in our daily lives and thought processes to become something we do spontaneously and habitually in our relationship with God.

Yet when the going gets tough it can easily be neglected and forgotten.

My prayer is that the Holy Spirit will highlight the Scriptures He wants to bring to your attention about prayer.
