Question: Who is the Almighty that we should serve him? And what profit do we get if we pray to him? (Job 21:15)
Answer: O Lord, answer me, that this people may know that you, O Lord, are God (1 Kings 18:37).
People who pray get to know God. (He is very great!)
Ask and it will be given to you (Matthew 7:7).
God can do anything.
The Lord on high is mighty (Psalm 93:1).
Nothing will be impossible with God (Luke 1:37).
Everything is in subjection under His feet. . . . God left nothing outside Christ’s control (from Hebrews 2:8).
The disciples returned to Jesus and told him all they had done and taught (from Mark 6:30).
That’s why we pray. The Lord listens intently even though he already knows.
We pray so that when God answers us, we renew our praise to His glory.*
