Why do we Pray?

The deeper I want my relationship with God to be, the more often and the longer my prayers will be.

I don’t pray to get what I want. I used to and it was effective, becauseĀ God gives us the desires of our hearts. But by God’s grace, I’ve grown, and now I pray to be more intimate with God.

Why do I pray?

If I want to be more like Jesus, I pray.

If I want more of the Holy Spirit’s fruits or gifts, I pray.

If I want more of God’s glory to fall on earth, as it is in heaven, I pray.

Prayer is for comfort. Prayer is for communion. Prayer is for inspiration.

If every step I take is bathed in prayer, I am a greater blessing to others.

That’s why I pray.

When my spirit soars, I am renewed, refreshed, rebuilt, and I am more loving, more faithful, more free.
