Praying is having conversation with God. It is not just me asking Him for things, even though that is an important component.
When I pray I get to spend time with God, listening to His voice speak to my heart. It fulfills a deep desire within me to be with God and allow my spirit to align with His. When I pray I’m acknowledging my need and dependence for Him and glean from His wisdom and strength. When I pray I get to tell Him how much I love Him and allow His love for me to fill my soul.
Best of all, every time I pray I get to know God better.
I have found that it is hard to get to know someone when you don’t spend enough time with them. Also, I have found that I become like the people I spend the most time with. So when I spend time with God in prayer, His character rubs off on me. His peace becomes my peace. In His presence my life is transformed.
This is why I love to pray.
