Prayer and bible study can be done concurrently, both requires commitment, bible study unlike prayer, cannot be rushed into, like being in a race for God’s mercy, in request of urgent divine intervention.

The Lord's prayer

Christian are called upon from a scriptural point of view, to pray without ceasing, prayer can be made at every opportune moment, prayer is not being emotional , it is a radical way of life, pray without ceasing is suggestive of something greater, the more a person pray, the more rejoicing they will have.
Prayer is a beautiful channel that is able to heal the kindred spirit, reaching into the soul that flows delightfully into the heart, we can pray in our heart without saying a word.

Prayer draw us nearer to the lord, and he in turn, will draw nearer to us, in everything, give thanks, God hears and answers our prayer, it is also clear that location is not essential to prayer, a person can pray from any place on any subject and overthrows the idea of time.

Pray whether we feel it or not, prayer and bible study is not limited to worship and praise, it is to become embroiled in the way our life is played out, it is important for every area of our lives to be covered by prayerful observation, prayer makes the word comes alive in our sprit. And the word made flesh develops strong characteristics within us, to do more than what duty calls for.

Going beyond where danger lies, Christians are called upon to go one step further, to take on a responsible posture and pray for world leaders, the people who are in authority, and it extends to those who make important decisions, concerning the lives of their citizens, the prayer is not for leaders to change drastically, but to give them direction, and for us to lead a peaceful life, amidst all the turmoil that is going on around us, it is also important to affirm prayer over events that has already taken place.

Prayer is to be presented to God on the behalf of all mankind, in particularly for those who are in authority, by cultivating a consistent prayer life, Christians become more effective with deliverance of the word, and prayer enables the believer to come closer to the throne of grace, with bold assurance they can make request, Prayer for personal assistant and guidance in making important decision is highly recommended.

The Lord’s Prayer can be memorizing, to be used effectively on solemn occasions, such as christening, weddings, and funerals. Before starting a bible study, we should always pray and invite Gods presence into the midst of our study, so that the Holy Spirit can illuminate our heart, prayer is not conditional, but it is advisable to be respectful and reverent when others are praying.

Psalms 23.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anoints my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
