Should You Pray ? Why ?

Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you (James 4:8)
 
It is said that God knows knows what we want, need before we open our mouths
to ask. He sees our hearts and knows our thoughts (Matthew 6:8). Why then do 
you need to pray ? Good question!! Here we will understand the values of Prayer, why
you should cultivate a praying habit;
 
- Prayer draws us close to God: God is interested in our innermost thoughts, because he wants us draw close to him. (Psalm 139:23,24; James 4:8). So Jesus encouraged his followers to pray even though the Father knows our needs. (Matthew 6:6-8)
 
- Prayer reveals our true needs
God does not necessarily need be reminded of your needs, only you need to show how truly you want something. We are likely gonna relent in praying about a trivial need. A constant prayer exposes a
constant need. Worshippers today may have to persevere in prayer until they perceive God's response to their petitions.__Romans 12:12
 
- Prayer helps build confidence in God
How many times have you prayed, thereafter your mind feel at rest, all worries gone. That is the power of prayer giving you assurance in God's faithfulness and clearing worries about your problems. -1 John 5:14

 

So next time you find yourself in doubt or worried, kindly pray.

When Jesus told the hard saying to all the people, that they need to eat of His body and drink of His blood, many turned away. Those who trusted Him, however, stood by Him and asked Him to explain (emphasis mine):

 

John 6:60-63

60 When many of his disciples heard it, they said, “This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?” 61 But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples were grumbling about this, said to them, “Do you take offense at this? 62 Then what if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? 63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.

 

What Jesus was teaching them was how to eat "spiritually." 

 

In the Old Testament, Israel ate of the manna. In the New Covenant, we eat of Jesus' body and blood. This "spiritual" food can only be received through intimacy with Jesus through a daily prayer relationship. The shadow of the manna in the Old Testament makes it clear, we can save none of this "bread" for the next day. It must be gathered "daily." This is what keeps our spirit person strong and this is what keeps us abiding in Jesus' Spirit. 

 

So, most certainly, every Christian should pray, and pray daily. Prayerlessness is sin that can make you very vulnerable to other sins and to spiritual deception and attack. Our life can only be found in Jesus.

Good reminders about prayer.  Being a Christian means having a relationship with God.  That means communicating with him.  It means talking to him and listening for a reply, like we do with other people.  We should have a prayer relationship with God all the time.  I talk to him continually throughout the day.  I have conversations with him driving down the road, while I am busy with everyday chores, anything.  I know he is always there.
