Why does God want us to pray to Him? The simple answer is that He loves us so much and loves to hear from his children.
Do you have parents that love you? Do you think they appreciate and love hearing from you? It’s no different with God.
When we pray, we show that we love Him and appreciate all He does for us. We show that we realize that all that we are and that all we have comes from Him.
What kind of children do you want to have? Children that are ungrateful and unappreciative?
Don’t we want children that respect usand express their love, appreciation and thankfulness to us? Don’t we want children that appreciate what we have done and do for them? It’s no different with God.
We are made in his image and we have the same feelings and qualities. So whatever we would want out of our children is what He wants out of us.
Does God have feelings? Where do you think we got our feelings from?
If you haven’t prayed today, why not get down
Speak with Him as you would talk to your father or if you don’t have a good human father then speak to Him as you would talk to a good human father, if you had one.
I can assure you that God hears all the prayers that are sincere, genuine and come from the heart. The other prayers make Him sick at the heart. God despises hypocritical prayers and He can tell the difference, as no one can fool Him.
He is concerned about each one of us and wants to hear from each one of us. God wants you to pray to Him. Will you give Him the pleasure of listening to your sincere prayers today?
