In the New Testament church, prayer was a normal part of everyday life. Everyone prayed! Church members were considered “spiritual” if they knew how to pray.
Prayer was something that everyone practiced. Even children were taught to pray at a young age and expected to grow in their knowledge of how to communicate with God. As Christians today, we are no different—we are called to live an “anointed” life, where the Holy Spirit helps us pray for one another as well as ourselves.
Question to Consider: How can you improve your prayer life by learning from the faith of those who have gone before us?
