In this day and age, there are many voices seeking to pull us in different directions. When we pray, there are only two things in the universe, God and ourselves. If we are to be the covenant members that are spoken of in our Messianic Writings, then we have to be a people of prayer. We have to be a people that takes the time necessary to hear the voice of God.
The Hebrew word for prayer is tefilah. Tefilah comes from the root "pellel" which means "to judge." Prayer is a time of self-evaluation and introspection. On a deeper level, tefilah can also mean "attachment." When we pray, we create a bond between two different entities: ourselves and our Creator. Thus, prayer is the process by which we begin looking at ourselves, and proceed to grow closer to God.
With all the voices out there, we have to be able to recognize the voice of the Lord, and we do that through talking with the Creator.
