You pray and God reveals those tasks that He would have you to do so that you will be in alignment with what He is going to do. That is how all known miracles take place. That is how all known supernatural events occur. All healing, all inspiration, all good things from God, are borne in prayer.
The Bible is clear on the issue of prayer. Throughout the scriptures, we have examples of prayer, results of prayer and commandments concerning prayer. Prayer is perhaps the simplest of all spiritual concepts, yet man has, in his wisdom, developed many false views, doctrines, precepts and teachings concerning prayer.
