Thoughtful Thursday:Why do we pray?

Why do we pray? God knows everything already anyway. He’s almighty, sovereign, and in control of all things. What could we possibly add to His wisdom with our feeble attempts at prayer?

It’s a great question. So, let’s figure it out.

First, we pray because we are God’s children, and He loves to hear from us. –Zephaniah 3:17

Second, we pray because it deepens our trust in God.-Philippians 4:6-7

Third, we pray because it causes us to depend on God.-Isaiah 40:26

Fourth, we pray because it gives us the chance to express ourselves completely to the Lord.-Psalms 62:8

Fifth, we pray because our prayers move the heart of God.-James 4:2

Sixth, we pray because it’s an amazing way that we get to be involved with what God is already doing in our world.-1 Thessalonians 5:25

God shapes the world by prayer. The more praying there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil.”-Mother Teresa


Wishing everyone a lovely day!

God bless you!

  1. Hi Lebana,

    great reasons . We pray because we want to to exclude ourselves from reality and to connect with infinite intelligence ! Our mind frequency in pray is about 3Hz, which is coma state ! Thank you

  2. I love praying because I get to spend quality alone time pouring our my heart to Him, and just laying in His loving arms as He so lovingly whispers to me. And I can take the names of my friends before Him and whisper them into His ear…. like Anabel 😉
