A Call to Prayer is a continuous exhortation to become very serious about our walk with God. We must make relationship with God a priority, and this requires us to commit time and energy to earnest prayer. An active private prayer life is the sure foundation of a victory over sin and fellowship with God. Without prayer, we will inevitably backslide, and we must ultimately ask if we in fact know God (are we truly saved?). The unsaved are advised to quit making excuses and just talk to God: ask Him for mercy!
