Why We Pray – June 27

27 Jun
  • Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. (Luke 18:1)

Here we see Jesus instructing the disciples to always pray; we also see Paul command the church in Thessalonica to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5). Yet you may wonder why you need to talk to God about your needs since “your Father knows what things ye have need of, before ye ask Him” (Matthew 6:8).

It is part of God’s grand scheme that we have been given the privilege to cooperate with God in prayer. Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance; it is laying hold of His willingness. Ephesians 6:18 tells us to always “pray in the Spirit.” As the Holy Spirit places thoughts on your heart, you are to submit those thoughts to God in prayer. In doing so, you are part of a closed circuit that begins with God and ends with God. Prayer is the reflection of a dependency on God, it is the continual willingness to submit ourselves to His authority in all things.
