A human being lives, but he is given life.
Even though most Christians believe prayer is important, many do not understand why prayer is really necessary. Why do we pray to Him? One reason is that prayer is primarily for our benefit, but God is still going to do what he wants, weather we pray or not. The truth of the matter is that it is necessary for God’s children to pray. Why else would Jesus tell us to pray that God’s will be done?
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God, He created him; male and female He created them (Gen. 1:26, 27). Adam was to be God’s authoritative representative on earth; He was the earth’s watchman or guardian. We read in (Ps. 8:5) “For you have made him a little lower than the angels, and you have crowned him with glory and honor”. Prayer is necessary, because from the beginning God intended to work though humans, not independent of them, in carrying out His will on earth (Thess. 3:1). And in (Thess.3:1) Paul asked believers to pray for the advancement of the gospel: if that message was good then, I
believe that we should continue on with that though today.
