    Two=Way Street

    Prayer is neither black magic nor is it a form
    of demand note. Prayer is a relationship.
    The act of praying is more analogous to clearing
    away the underbrush which shuts out a view
    than it is to begging in the streets.
    There are many different kinds of prayer.
    Yet all prayer has one basic purpose. We pray
    not get something, but to open up a two-
    way street between us and God, so that
    we and others may inwardly become
    something.

    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?

    ask and it shall be given..knock and the door shall be opened...
    I think we are given choices...so even tho the creator knows what we want and need...it is our choice to ask , to give thanks, to have a dialogue with the devine. and during thecourse of this "two-way" street we may discover what is really necessary and what we really need

    I believe this, for truth. :)

    He knows, but are you willing to be humbled to ask? To thank the Heavenly Father for what He's shared? Though He gives to all, it should not just be "expected" as if He has need to give to us; we are not needed to the Father, but we need His Way and His Will and His Love upon us.
