There are many reasons why people pray. I pray because God has given me the desire to be in a deep relationship with Him. He wants to love me and needs me to be still and let Him. I also pray so that I can deepen my relationship with Jesus who is always with me. I know that God enjoys my taking time to thank Him for so many gifts and graces.
Why do you pray? When do you pray? How do you pray? These are questions to ponder as Lent is a time to examine how we are responding to God. God gives us the desire to pray and then waits for us.
