The Mystery of Prayer

What is prayer?
What is the use of praying?
Is not God omniscient (all-knowing) as well as omnipotent (all-powerful)?
Why must He wait until we pray before He commences to work?
Since He already knows, why must we tell Him everything?
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing: but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
Being Almighty, why does God not work directly?
Why should He need our prayers?
Matthew 7:7 Ask and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you
Why is it that only those who ask are given, only those who seek find, and only those who knock enter in?
Why does God say:
James 4:2 Ye have not because ye ask not.
The Lord is demanding that His people come back to the alter of prayer and there prepare for battle.
Are you lacking? Pray. Why wouldn’t we??
