Question 35 — Whence do you reckon prayer, which is a part of moral 511and natural worship, among the institutions of Christ in his church?

Answer — On many accounts; as, — abecause the Lord Christ hath commanded his church to attend unto the worship of God therein; bbecause he bestows on the ministers of the church gifts and ability of prayer for the benefit and edification thereof; che hath appointed that all his other ordinances should be administered with prayer, whereby it becomes a part of them; dbecause himself ministers in the holy place, as the great high priest of his church, to present their prayers unto God at the throne of grace; ebecause in all the prayers of the church there is an especial regard had unto himself and the whole work of his mediation.
