We pray because...

Lillies from my garden, praise God for all the beautiful flowers this year.

We pray because we want to thank someone or something for the beauties and glories for life, and also because we feel small and helpless and sometimes afraid.  We pray for forgivenes, for strength, for contact with the One who is, for assurance that we are not alone. {from Yancey's book Prayer}

A few Prayers in the Bible {from Yancey's book Prayer}
