Why Should I Pray?

The Bible in Matthew 7:7 says "Ask and it shall be given, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you"

But what is your reason for asking?

We all have wants and needs we desire and ask God about. 

Here are some reasons we pray.

1. Pleasure(1 Timothy 5:6): Many of us pray for enjoyment. Their prayer lives is centered on fleeting desires.

2. Money (I Timothy 6:10): Some pray to God for riches of the world and then forget about God and prayers.

3. Boasting and Pride: Others pray to be known. They become prayer warriors to show and tell others how many hours and days they prayed and fasted and their journeys to mountains.

4. Problems: When christians are faced with challenges, they go to God in prayer and do all needful things to come out of the problems and after God answers them, they forget about Him.

5. Lack of understanding (James 1:5): Many people fall into this category. They pray because they see others praying, not because they want to do.

Few understand the rules and reasons for prayer and pray in the right way and manner and get results.

Examine your life. Why do you pray? Is it for any of these reasons listed? 

Stay blessed.
