The Reason Why We Need To Pray

The reasons why we need to pray may vary, but there is one reason that covers everything else. Most of the people pray when things are hard or when they are simply thankful for random things.

The Number #1 Reason Is Peace of Mind

If you have peace, then you will be happy. If you are happy, then you will be healthy. How about, if you are healthy? Then, you will be productive. If you have all these, then you are most likely to fulfill the purpose of God in your life. You have to remember that it all begins with peace. If there is no peace, I doubt that you will be happy or healthy. Your medication list will be long and you will be so busy pursuing the things you think will make you happy.

How do you attain peace? Pray.

John 16:33 – These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (KJV)

This verse tells us that we can have peace through our LORD Jesus (Yeshua). This is where we all need to begin our quest. He is the source of peace. If we are far from Him, then it is self-explanatory. If we are far from the springs of living water then it is understandable that we will not be able to drink. Now, we may be near the spring or own the spring, but if we don’t drink the water, we will NOT get the benefits.

Our lives are so busy these days. Our time is occupied by work and electronic gadgets. So many concerns to think about: our dreams, our children, our health, our finances and the lists goes on. It is out of control! Some of us became zombies and some are caught in the wheel of misfortunes.

To pray is to connect to the source of peace. He is the Springs of Living Water.

The LORD will always lead you, satisfy you in a parched land, and strengthen your bones. You will be like a watered garden and like a spring whose waters never run dry. Isaiah 58:11 HCSB
