What is the purpose of prayer?

8 08 2014

Seriously what is it?

Sure, all people will answer “to talk or communicate with God.”  But when you communicate, it’s basically telling the person all about your day and what concerns you.

But why ask for things?  

If God grants us what we ask for in his own time, regardless of our “say” (ie prayer) in the whole  shebang of it all…then of what use is prayer?  Do we use it as a channel to ask things from God?  Sure, there’s the whole “ask and you shall receive” principle, but honestly, that seems a little selfish.  I have no problem in the world with prayer being an avenue for communication with God, and telling him all about my day, but I’m debating what the point of asking God for things is.
