Why Pray?

Why are you praying?

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men—the testimony given in its proper time. 1 Timothy 2:1-6

Here is another comprehensive paragraph.

First of all that
1. requests
2. prayers
3. intercessions
4. thanksgiving
5 be made for everyone.

Why? We do this because it pleases God our Savior and because it is part of the process of people being saved and coming to a knowledge of the truth.
