Prayer in the Bible

"The Lord’s Prayer--It is a prayer taught by Jesus to his disciples in the books of Matthew and Luke, from the variety of prayers available in the Jewish tradition of Jesus's time.

The Book of Common Prayer, almost 500 years old, remains the official service liturgy of the Church of England, influencing liturgy across a spectrum of religious expression beyond just the Anglican Church.

The Bible is saturated with prayer! In events, in the story of people, in its commands and in its songs of praise—with praise, prayer and praying mentioned over 500 times!

As you engage with the Bible on this National Day of Prayer—you’ll discover the prominence given to prayer in every aspect of this Book of books!"
