Why Prayer?

Why does God want us to pray?

Matthew 6:8b says, “Your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask Him.” So why ask God to do what He already wants to do? Why ask God to do something for us when He already knows our needs? Those are good questions.

Why has our Lord commanded prayer? When we pray, we don’t pray to inform God. God already knows. We don’t pray to instruct God, because God has a will. What we do is invite God when we pray.

Now what does that mean? God wants to do things in us, and He wants to do those things through prayer. God wants us to have fellowship with Him, and so God tells us to pray. It’s how we fellowship with our Lord. It’s you and God getting together.
