Prayer is very important in a Christian’s life. Prayer is their way to communicate with God. It is very important that we are in fellowship with God. Prayer makes impossible things possible. This is one of the reasons why there are prayer ministry.
So many people thought that when they believe in Jesus, they will no longer experience this kind of problems. There are actually some problems that will be gone, but not all of them. Satan is the one that sows seeds of feelings of unworthiness and doubt in people. Satan also prevents people from getting the right help that they need. It is in the Bible that when you accept Jesus in your lives it will also be the start of your relationship journey with him. Since we can strengthen our relationship with God through prayer, satan tries to prevent us from praying.
