Prayer - Lesson 2
Prayer is much more than just asking for what we want. Rather, it is building a relationship with God. It is a way that we learn to see ourselves as God sees us. God knows us, better than we know ourselves. He desires us to also come to know HIM.
Look at it this way, how do you establish relationships with other people? A Do you constantly nag them for only things you want? Do you communicate with them, only when it is convenient? B Or…. Do you have back and forth conversations with others, while spending time with them- getting to know them, maybe at very deep, personal levels? Which do you think is better A or B?
