Prayer is our greatest Christian privilege -- but many times is our greatest failure. All of us need to learn to pray more, and to pray "better." If we are going to impact our families, our churches, our country in these critical days, prayer is where we must begin.
One of our kiddos asked me when they were very small, "If God knows everything, why do I need to pray?" It wasn't a disrespectful question -- the tiny face was furrowed with concern and puzzlement.
The answer is just as relevant to adults as to children . . .
We don't pray to inform God; He already knows each and every need of our heart. We can't tell Him anything that He doesn't know.
We don't pray to impress God; we don't have to use eloquence or poetry. We simply cry out to our Father.
We do pray to invite God; we are inviting God into our lives when we pray. Please share any request that you may have on your heart, and let us know of praises and answered prayers, as well. We can rejoice with you at God's blessings in your life.
