Ever wonder why the faithful pray?  After all, Jesus said "your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him"  (Matthew 6:8).  So why pray?  Well first of all, prayer is offered in obedient faith.  It is God's will that we pray to him (I Thessalonians 5:17, 18), and believing that God is "a rewarder of them that diligently seek him" (Hebrews 11:6) the faithful obey.  The effectiveness of our prayers depends on the faith we put in them (Mark 11:22-24).  Any exercise of our faith builds faith.  Prayer requires much faith and patience in God as we will we discuss later in this article, so it is a very important faith builder.
