At various times in my life, people have asked me why I pray. Honestly, I can't imagine life without prayer. My day is not complete and certainly does not go well if I have not checked in with God. God is my well. Only He has the blueprints of what I am supposed to be doing with my day. He also created my children which means that only He holds the key to understanding them. I wouldn't want to try to bring them up without God's assistance.
Why Pray? Because prayer is the key to a fuller relationship with the One who knows us and loves us more than any other.
