<prar> (Grk: deesis, Grk: proseuche, (Grk: enteuxis; for an excellent discussion of the meaning of these see Thayer’s Lexicon, p. 126, under the word Grk: deesis; the chief verbs are Grk: euchomai, Grk: proseuchomai, and Grk: deomai, especially in Luke and Acts; Grk: aiteo, “to ask a favor” distinguished from Grk: erotao, “to ask a question,” is found occasionally): In the Bible “prayer” is used in a simpler and a more complex a narrower and a wider signification. In the former case, it is a supplication for benefits either for one’s self (petition) or for others (intercession). In the latter, it is an act of worship that covers all souls in its approach to God. Supplication is at the heart of it, for prayer always springs out of a sense of need and a belief that God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him (Heb 11:6). But adoration and confession and thanksgiving also find a place, so that the suppliant becomes a worshipper. It is unnecessary to distinguish all the various terms for prayer that are employed in the Old Testament and the New Testament. But the fact should be noticed that in the Hebrew and Greek aloe there are on the one hand words for prayer that denote a direct petition or short, sharp cry of the heart in its distress ( Ps 30:2; 2 Cor 12:8), and on the other “prayers” like that of Hannah (1 Sam 2:1-10 ), which is, in reality, a song of thanksgiving, or that of Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ, in which intercession is mingled with a doxology ( Eph 3:14-21).
