Whats the point of Prayer?
For a very long time, people have been praying. They pray for many different reasons. Some pray for guidence, comfort, because we are supposed to, or because that is the way they were raised. Whatever the reason may be for praying, the fact that we do it is very important. We have a loving Heavenly Father who loves us very much and wants to hear from us. When we pray we are showing him that we love him. We can talk to him just like we would to our own parents or friends. In the scriptures we are commanded to pray always. We are also told in the scriptures that we can pray anytime and anywhere we would like. We can pray in vocally or silently and we are also to have a prayer in our hearts. This to me shows how important praying is. I know from experience that when we pray to our Father in Heaven he does hear and answer our prayers. It may not be when we want or the way we want, but he always answers. I hope that we can all remember the importance of prayer and know that we can turn to our Heavenly Father no matter what.
