What is the True Purpose of Prayer?

January 30, 2012 at 6:18 AM 2 comments

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, praying, and writing…about prayer.  It’s a deep subject and one that tends to confuse.  Why should we pray?  For whom should we pray? How often should we pray? Why are some prayers answered in the affirmative while others are answered in the negative?  What does God want from us? The list of questions goes on.

As I’ve been putting my thoughts to paper, I’ve realized a few things about prayer that I believe every Christian should know.  First of all, life is not about us.  It’s not what God can do for us though He obviously has done tremendous things for us and in our favor. He didn’t have to, but He chose to.  Why?

If life is not really about us, then who is it about?

My upcoming book on prayer is not the book that will end all questions or discussion.  It simply represents another voice in the mix that offers a viewpoint; one that I hope and pray is biblically rooted.  More than anything, I answer the question “what is the purpose of prayer?” and hopefully, it brings prayer up to the level where it is supposed to be for each genuine believer.

I’m hoping to have this book available in the next few months.  Other books are also in the works; one on the Coming Tribulation, and more, so stay tuned.

    There was also an article on Fox News yesterday with some Rabbi who was also made some similar good statements. I recall he said something to the effect that prayer isn’t about putting in a coin in some holy machine and expecting a guaranteed response. That is magic, not prayer, where magic itself is prohibited by the Bible. He finally made the point that prayer is about conneciton and relationship to God.

    Anyway, your book sounds interesting.

      God is never to be our genie and too many have relegated Him to that position.
