Gospel meeting series.  Prayer is communication where two parties are involved—the Christian speaks and God listens. You see, the very idea of prayer assumes some things:  that God is real, that God loves mankind and is interested in him, assumes that man is dependent upon God, assumes that God hears us when we pray,  it also assumes that He answers.
