Thought for the Day II

God does not need us to pray so that He will know our needs or requests.  We pray to communicate with God, not to enlighten God.  We pray to hear from God and to be enlightened by God.  We pray as a witness or testimony that God is able to do as He says and to bring all things into subjection to His will.  The fact that we pray is our confirmation of God=s existence, sovereignty and holiness.   Prayer is not a one-way conversation with God, (where we speak, God listens, and we get what we want).  NO, prayer is a unique and conscious unity of our spirit with the Holy Spirit.
