Grand Canyon University alumnus and head pastor of Gateway Church in Scottsdale, Ariz. Preston Morrison approached the topic of prayer at this morning’s Chapel Service. In light of 24/7 Prayer Week, Preston gave the audience a practical but commonly overlooked reasons for prayer. He said that the three things that prayer is for are:

  1. To be heard; Micah 7:7
  2. To hear; Isaiah 55:3
  3. To come close; Psalm 27:7

Preston used the verses in 1 Samuel 3:1-10 to show what is like to hear God’s voice. So commonly our prayers are us talking to God in this special moment of complete connection with the creator of our universe. But when we enter into a time of whole hearted prayer, we can’t bypass the importance of simply listening to God.
