Effective prayer is linked directly to our inheritance –the kingdom of God that is pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay, an inheritance that is given for everyone. Through prayer we are recognising the reality of God’s kingdom, gaining confidence, standing tall in our new identity as chosen and beloved of God.
