WHY DO WE HAVE TO PRAY TO GOD?
WE HAVE TO PRAY TO GOD BECAUSE HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN ANSWER. He is the only one who can give us what we need. And only God can satisfy our deepest needs -- the needs we don't even know we have. God is everywhere and knows everything and can do anything, so He can hear everyone's prayers and answer them. Praying to ancestors, idols, angels, or people does not make sense because only God can answer prayer. Praying to God is an awesome privilege. God made it so that we could get to know Him, our heavenly Father, and have Him care for us, teach us, and meet our needs.
"Hear O LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Guard my life, for I am devoted to You. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in You." Psalm 86: 1-2
