Prayer


Yesterday I received another question. So if you would like to help me with this one you can, or you can just ask a question that joins with it. Here it is: What is the purpose of prayer?

Now I am sure there is a story that goes along with this question --- I don't know what that is --- but I thought I would let you all weigh in on this matter. Things to consider are: who is praying? who is on the receiving end? (because sometimes we think we are praying to God---when in all reality we are just trying to elevate our status [ref. Luke 18.9-14]) is prayer only words? how does this relate to Jesus praying?

I would love to hear what you all think.

I think the purpose of prayer is part of building/strengthening your relationship with Christ. We have conversations w/ our family and friends so it makes sense to also have a "conversation" with our Maker.
