      Prayer is about drawing closer to Jesus and the heavenly Father. Prayer is also for giving thanks to God for how He has worked in your live or in the lives of others. Prayer is about giving God the glory for answered prayers.

      Prayer is our communication with God. It’s more than just requests and answers, it’s about our relationship with our Heavenly Father. It’s about our faith in Him. Do we trust Him? Do we believe His understanding and His ways are higher than ours?

      I look at praying as similar to talking to a close friend. I wanted to share how I am doing, important events that happen and how is he doing . I wanted our closeness to each other be sustains and keep continuing.

      First and foremost, we must know the reasons why we pray. We pray because God commands us to pray (Philippians 4:6-7), and a prayer is also a form of serving God (Luke 2:36-38) and obeying Him. 4:6-7). Praying is another way of how God blesses others through our prayers.
      Prayer also demonstrates our faith and trust in God and our intimate relationship with the Creator. Though prayer is not merely about answers, praying does make a difference in the course of human life.

      Prayer is meant to bring us into relationship with God and to change how we interact with others. Neither of these is reliant upon requests or answers.

      It is working out our faith walk with our Heavenly Father and our relationship with Him as we struggle and grow to become Christ-like as we sojourn on our earthly journey towards that fulfillment when we enter the kingdom for all eternity.

      Because it is about a relationship with the One whom you are praying to. A relationship built on love and trust. When we have unanswered prayers we must know that the One whom we are praying to has our best interest at heart.

      It is communication between us and God
