We need prayer warriors who would gaze at the Face of God instead of being engrossed with the answers to the petitions they make. Far too often, we associate prayer by asking for things whenever we have a need. That type of prayer shows us how little we know God. If we continue to reduce God to only a taskmaster, what kind of a god then are we worshiping?
Learning how to pray well is a test of our love. Do we love God for who He is, or do we love God for what He can give? The difference may be very subtle, but if we truly understand relationships, we will know exactly why that matters. Prayer as relationship has to do more with gazing at the Beauty of God instead of staring at the Bounty of God. Praying well reflects that relationship.
