A question I am often asked goes something like this: “Why does God need our prayers anyway?”
Have you ever wondered why God seems so intent on having us pray for every single thing? Is He not sovereign and merciful and willing to take care of everything, whether or not his people ask Him each time?
Come to Papa Like a Trusting Child
Let’s develop this a little bit. In His goodness, He wants you to come closer to Him
. The most straightforward way to do that is through our simple, confident praying. Like trusting children, we come to Papa. He supplies what we need in exactly the right measure. When we point to some other person’s need and say, “Papa, look over there. Would You help him/her/them, too?” He is quick to respond. Why? This is more than just a Q & A session. Prayer is an invitation straight from Papa God’s heart to ours to come into a greater intimacy with Him.
