Prayer? Why?

Prayer, is it enough? Some people say it's not enough.  Others say that's just to simple.  Can you simply talk to God and see your life start to change and start to take shape?........................................Why does the bible say to pray without ceasing?  Why did Jesus become grieved when His disciples couldn't pray with Him for even an hour, knowing that His time was at hand?  Why did Jesus choose to pray during the most excruciating period of his time on earth, so excruciating that He was sweating blood?  The anticipation of what Jesus was going to suffer for us, was so much for Him, that even as perfect as He was, He asked that God take this cup from Him.  But nevertheless, submitted to God's will being done.Prayer is what carried Jesus through the most terrible suffering that any human flesh has ever had to go through.  Nobody has taken the whole world's sin into their own body.  We can barely handle our own sin, and Jesus took on everything.  He who knew no sin, took on every sin, that was on the face of the earth.  Prayer got Him through.  I ask again is prayer enough?  The disciples were praying in the upper room, before the Holy Spirit fell upon them, in the form of flaming tongues of fire,  and 3,000 souls were added to them that day.  Just 1 day, 3,000 people saved!!!(Acts chapter 1 and 2)  Is prayer enough?

Philippians 4:6,7
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Proverbs 4:23
Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it flow the issues of life

What power is in having a conversation with the God of the universe, the One who loves and cares for you more than any other.  What can a conversation with your Heavenly Father do for you.  What is the power of an exchange of words between the natural and the supernatural.  What is the power of conversation?  Having a conversation with the right person can literally change your life.  Having a conversation with the wrong person, can ruin your life.  Why is this?  Billion dollar deals are made over coffee and conversation.  Why?  Why does bullying via social media, have kids committing suicide?  They are just words?  \Lets just say that the old saying "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me", is a lie!!!  Words hurt more than any bodily harm that anyone could ever do to you.  God used words to create, what we see.  You can't see words, but words produce what is visible.  I ask again, is prayer enough?  Who are you having conversations with and what are you speaking during those conversations?  Are those conversations affecting your life for the better or for the worst.  Trust me, every word you speak and receive produces something tangible in your life.
