What's the Point?

"If we would talk less and pray more about them, things would be better than they are in the world; at least, we should be better enabled to bear them." - John Owen

Lately we’ve had discussions on the purpose of prayer. If God is sovereign, and in control of all things, why pray? The consensus is that the purpose of prayer is not to change events (i.e., change God’s mind) but to change us. Prayer aligns us with God’s heart and makes us desire His will above our own fancies. After all, the results, even when painful, will always be what is best for us, God’s children.

First of all, great thots on prayer. One of the best books on prayer out there in my mind is "Developing Intimacy with God" by Alex B. Aronis which I am reading/going through now. It has been the most powerful and transforming book I have ever read aside from the Bible. If you want to find out more about prayer, this is a simply amazing resource.
