Q: If everything happens for a reason, and things are predestined to happen, then why do we pray? How does prayer change things? I struggle with this area in my Christian life, and I think partly because I don’t understand and don’t know if my prayer makes a difference.
Scripture is very clear about prayer. Prayer is not simply petitioning God, but having a relational conversation with the Creator. We are adoring Him, confessing to Him, thanking Him, and making our requests known to Him. We are asking God to move in a way that we can’t. Even when He doesn’t answer, He’s still moving and we must learn to trust Him in it.
