The best reason to pray is that God is really there. In praying our unbelief starts to melt. God moves smack into the middle of even an ordinary day.
But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good,
Romans 2:10 The King James Version
The closer we are to God, the closer we are to those who are close to him.
I am always content with what happens, for I know that what God chooses is better than what I choose.
And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness.
2 Timothy 2:24-25 The English Standard Version
Find out what your temptations are and you will find out largely what you are yourself.
Henry Ward Beecher
Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow.
Isaiah 1:17 The New King James Version
