Why is prayer so important?
Note that the reader did not ask if prayers "work" or "how prayers work". The reader used the word "important". So important!
Important: marked by significant worth. Valuable in content or relationship.
Prayers are marked by significant worth and they are valuable in content and relationship. And the question is, why?
So imagine this, dear reader. Imagine that you're watching television. While you're doing that you're connected to the material you are watching.
When you turn the TV off, all of that goes away, as though it does not exist.
But it does. All of those signals and pixels are flying around ceaselessly, whether you choose to join in or not. Connect or not. The TV signals go on and on and on.
So you can connect to God or not. He is always there, ceaselessly. Prayer connects you to God. That's why it's important.
It's not rocket science.
