Prayer and Obedience

“Prayer takes every part of our being to perform. Mind, will, spirit, and body posture all turn to God in a real and intimate way. Thoughtful prayer seeks to improve its understanding in sanctification, “being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God” (Col. 1:10). Prayer turns the knowledge of God into action through obedience to God” (James W. Beeke & Joel R. Beeke, Developing A Healthy Prayer Life, 90).
