Prayer connects us to God. God knows the deepest desires of our hearts and He knows our thoughts. So prayer can seem a bit of overkill, after all God knows what I want right? Well, yes He does but what God desires is a relationship with you. That is not a one way street. Relationships require us to spend time together, grow together, get closer to each other, and even share our troubles with one another. A relationship with God is no different. Prayer is our way of talking to God and letting Him know we desire a relationship with Him.
When you draw close to God your life is not just known by God but it is given to Him freely and that is the true desire of God's heart for your life. So I suggest you pray hard and pray often.
