Why Do We Pray?

Is the purpose of prayer to get what we want? Absolutely not! We can all agree to this, but how many of us practically live this out? We come to God with our lists, then we question the significance of prayer when we don’t get what we pray for. Since we don’t see the answers, we give up. Maybe the reason that so many have had a hard time with prayer is because our focus is incorrect.

God has created us to know Him.  “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8a). Prayer is one of the best means to approach God and spend time with Him. He most definitely wants to know what is on our hearts, but I think He much rather let you know what is on His.
