To understand prayer, you must first understand the purpose of the Creator. Prayer is a result of God’s established authority structure between heaven and earth, as well as a product of His faithfulness to His Word. This is because prayer was born out of man’s God-given assignment. The Creator said, “Let them rule…over all the earth” (Genesis 1:26). His design is for human beings to call upon Him to fulfill His Word “on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). God’s commitment to His Word is the basis of the prayer principle. He is faithful to fulfill His promises and decrees because of His integrity or holiness.
