Provoking Thoughts on Prayer

“Your Father knows what things you need before you ask.” Then why ask? The idea of prayer is not first to get answers from God; prayer is perfect and complete oneness with God. If we only pray because we want answers, we will eventually get huffy with God. The answers come every time, but not always in the way we expect. We are not here to prove God answers prayer; we are here to be living monuments of God’s grace.

When prayer seems to be unanswered, beware of trying to fix blame somewhere. You will find there is a reason, which is a deep instruction to you, not to anyone else.
