Why Do We Pray?

Why Do We Pray?


•We love our parents and we need to show our love for them

•We know that they love us and we feel overjoyed when we experience their love for us.

•Our parents would guide us to do the right thing and take the right path.

•They would explain things when we don’t understand and we question them.

•We would want to thank our parents when we are given a gift or a helping hand.

•Our parents care for us when we are sick or when we are in trouble.

•They would advice us how to keep away from trouble.

It is the same reason as to why we communicate with God or pray to God

•God shows us his love

•We feel joy when we experience God’s love within ourselves or through the kindness of others

•God guides us in prayer to take the right path and be out of trouble.

•Through prayer we will be able to understand things that confuses us.

•We can thank God for the wonderful gifts and talents we are given.

•God consoles us through prayer when we are troubled.

•We know that God can heal us, when we are sick physically or emotionally.

However, the blessings through prayer are much more.

•We are granted wisdom through the Holy Spirit for right judgement and right understanding.

•We are granted courage to face difficulties or challenges.

•We are granted the graces of helping others.

•Parent’s love can be conditional, but God’s love for us is unconditional.

•We know that when we do wrong and repent, God will forgive us, no matter how bad the situation is. God’s mercy is unlimited.

•God gave us His son, so we can have eternal life – something that we can always thank God for.

So, why do we pray ?

Because we know that God loves us and that God will take care of us as God is our BEST FRIEND.
