The Importance of Prayer – Bible Study

This is a 20-question Bible study on the importance of prayer.  It is adapted from Bible Readings for the Home Circle, copyright 1920.  This is in the public domain, so you may use it however you wish.  After the Bible study answers, I have made 4 free printable Scripture cards on prayer.  They measure 5″ by 3″, the size of a postcard.
