Rather than having flimsy roots, prayer changes our roots to be the solid rock. “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” (Matthew 7:24)

It’s not about putting in the extra effort or putting on a good show. Prayer is about coming and just being with God. Out of that is life, growth, and the confidence to ask audaciously.
