Why do we pray? (Prayer Part I)


Does God always answer prayer? Does God always give us what we ask for? What happens to my prayer if I sin? Will God no longer hear me, or will he no longer give me what I ask? Will God always answer yes to some prayers—for example, prayers for healing? Does God, in fact, need our prayers? Is he in some way ignorant of our needs? If not, what is the use of telling him about them?
