    • 3 Pages

    In Christianity, the foundations of hope and prayer are created through biblical theology and full surrender. Hope requires the believer to be an active, but patient, participant in their environment all the while living for the glory of God. Prayer affirms the believer’s conviction towards communicating with God. “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer” (Romans 12:12, English Standard Version). Therefore, both hope and prayer are mutually inclusive as one cannot happen without the other through theological, biblical and practical applications.…

    Prayer and praise are present in all religions. Christians, Hindus, Muslims, and others are all include prayer and praise in their worship. Religious doctrines require Christians to praise and thank the Lord for the blessings that have been given upon them.

This brings a tremendous responsibility upon me as a redeemed child of God.…
