The Purpose of Prayer
Join us each Morning (Monday-Friday) at 9:00 AM
Like all other commandments which God has commanded us to do, not for His sake but for ours, He has commanded us to pray to Him for our sake. God does not need our prayer; He can do without our prayers, but we cannot do without our prayers. It is good for us to acknowledge our dependence on God for our very life, our health, our daily bread, and our general welfare. And we should do so every day, and many times a day.
We must often remind ourselves that our life and happiness are a gift from our Merciful Creator, for we should then try to be worthy of God's kindnesses and favors to us. God does not owe us anything; yet He gives us everything. We should try to be the same way towards our fellow-men and grant favors freely. We should express our gratitude to God not merely in words, but in deeds: by obeying His commands and living our daily life the way God wants us to do, especially as it is all for our own good.
Knowing that God is good and that nothing is impossible for Him to do, we can go about our life with a deep sense of confidence and security. Even in times of distress we will not despair, knowing that in some way whatever happens to us is for our good, a blessing in disguise. We do not like to suffer, so we pray to God to help us out of our distress, and grant us the good that is not hidden or disguised, but the good that is obviously good, obvious even to our fleshy eyes and limited understanding. We gain strength, courage and hope in our trust in God.
Our daily prayers strengthen our trust in God.
Spending time with God through prayer and His Word is a prerequisite for having a great life and fulfilling your purpose.
