Recently, I received an email with this question. “Why is it important to pray?”
Before I answered the question, I reminded the writer of the question that praying is a two-way communication between God and His people. God speaks to us through His Word, through impressions, nature and people. We talk to God out loud or in our mind.
There are many reasons to communicate with God.
- To glorify God. Jesus said, “Whatever you ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” (John 14:13). The Father loves us and wants to bless us. We ask, He will do, and the Father will be glorified (get the credit)
