Why pray? After all, God already knows what I am thinking. Isn’t that good enough?
The reality of an all-knowing God. Many times I use that truth as a reason not to actually pray.
I’ve been married a lot of years. Over the years, my wife has come to know almost what I’m thinking from my body language, the look on my face, or even by my attention span. Even though–by her familiarity — she is able to “read my mind,” she often will ask questions in order for me to say what is on my mind.
It’s called communication and communion.
Taking time to verbalize those ideas rolling around in your head is called prayer when they are brought before God.
He invites the conversation because it does lead to communion with him. (Luke 18:1-8)
Can you or I really connect with someone without using words?
