    Are we praying correctly? Do we need to inform God of what we ask from Him? Doesn’t He know what is necessary for us?

    “Do not make long prayers,” Jesus says, “asking God for foolish things. He knows what is good for you better than you do, and He needs no prompting to keep Him interested. When you pray, try to understand what God wants from you; it is much more important than what you want from God.”

    (The Dead Sea Scrolls)

    GOD desires praise, not necessarily prayer.

    I praise/thank him more than I pray to him. Because I don't know how to pray... I don't know the correct way. And I figure when I ask for a blessing and he gives me a lesson instead? Yep, I came before him wrong some kind of way.

    It is the only way we can communicate with God.
