“Your Father knows what you need before you ask Him” (Matt 6:8).
By praying, we seek the presence of Him whom we love. We talk to Him and cry to Him and ask. And then we surrender all. If we do not pray, we cannot surrender all because only in Him can we let go of everything in trust.
I agree with this article which is well said. I also agree with Jocelyn Soriano. Well, stated, Jocelyn. I don't think I can add much to the article or the comment except to say God has given us a free will. He wants us to depend upon Him by our own free choice, out of love for Him and the desire to have a intimate two way relationship with Him. How special when one thinks of it!!!
