Prayer (Part 4)

Why pray? What's the purpose? Pastor Drew asserts that the main reason for prayer is to connect with God. Our priority may have initiated with a list of requests but as we spend more time with God, we put aside our physical and emotional needs as we receive our greatest reward...God Himself! God gives us anything we want and as we delight in Him, we are granted the desires of our heart...a heart aligned with His is a heart that seeks His will, closely connected, sharing desires with Him. The main reason for prayer is to partner with God and to be able to see His perspective on our lives (the view from above.) It's "doing life" with God and enjoying this relationship as we grow closer to Him, sharing intimacy and benefitting from keeping company with Him.
