Why Should Christians Pray?

   Call unto me and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. Jeremiah 33:3

    First, Christians are depending on someone higher than themselves. Our sufficiency is in Christ, "Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God." II Corinthians 3:5. Humanism and the new age movement says, "We are sufficient in ourselves, we don't need any power outside ourselves," of which this damnable doctrine takes God off His throne and puts man, our human energy, our intellect and abilities on the throne, which is a detriment to man's spiritual failure and eventually our eternal failure.

    Second, God's desire is to meet man's needs.The Apostle Paul was assured this when he fully surrendered his life to God and left these encouraging words for us to reflect upon, "For my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

    Third, we should pray and trust God for he owns it all. He only lets us be stewards of what he intrusts us with. "For every beast in the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beast of the fields are mine. If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine and the fulness thereof." Psalms 50:10-12
