You are probably asking the same question. Wise men say that God already knows our prayers, our hearts. He already knows our desires as humans. So, why is it we need to pray? With all the blessings and good things God has done for us, He deserves our prayer for thanksgiving. As a matter of fact, saying thank you won’t suffice how much He has done for us. But for Him, a grateful heart is enough.
Why pray? The Bible says the prayer of a righteous person is effective and powerful, When two or more agree together in prayer then something extraordinary happens. It is part of a divine-human communication. According to the Bible, “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thess. 5:17). Even the Bible taught us to pray to God and no need for explanations. However, read further to discover the essence of praying and uttering a prayer of praise to God.
We need to utter a prayer of praise to God as a sign of our gratitude for His greatness. We pray to God for us to find our ultimate purpose in life. The Lord surely has plans for every single individual in the world. With our prayers, we can be guided by the Holy Spirit in our journey in life. He is always willing to guide those who ask for His guidance and protection. On the other hand, it is also important to pray to God so that He can guide us in decision making, specifically if you need to make big and important decisions in life.
