‘I pray to You, O God, because You answer me…’ (Psalm 17:6)
Prayer is essential in our relationship with the Lord. Yes, God knows what we need before we come to Him – He knows all that is in our hearts and minds. However, even though the Lord knows everything about us, still we should come before Him in prayer, not simply to bring before Him our prayers of thanksgiving, petition or intercession, but also so that we come come to know Him more. Because the more we know the Lord – not know of Him, but know Him in our hearts and souls – the more we allow Him into our lives.
