Why We Should Pray—Even If God Knows Everything

Here are some amazing insights from a Christian woman about why we need prayer in our lives.

Have you ever wondered, "Why should I pray if God knows everything?" If so, you are not alone.

You see, I grew up in the church and I too struggled with this question. I was that child who would ask questions of that nature in Sunday school.

Like the time I asked the Sunday school teacher, “Why hasn't God answered my prayer about giving my family a bigger house which we desperately needed?”

Or, “Why hasn’t my dad attended church even though they regularly prayed for his attendance?”

And as I got older, I had another question: “Why should I pray when God doesn’t answer? What was the point?”

But while I challenged the purpose of prayer, I did pray. I prayed because at times I did not know what else to do. So I prayed hoping it would work, that I would get an answer.
