This clip is from: Joseph Prince—How To Pray Powerful Prayers (16 Jun 2013) @josephprince
If you're wondering why we still need to pray since God already knows us inside out, this one's for you!
The Bible says that prayer, or asking, is powerful. Many times we don’t have something simply because we didn’t ask for it (see James 4:1). And when we don’t have what we need or want, we can get frustrated and even try to get hold of it by our own means.
In the Bible, we see that David learnt it the hard way. While David used his own means—causing more harm to the people around him and himself—to get the things he wanted to satisfy his heart, he realized he could have just asked the Lord, and He would have given him much more (see 2 Sam. 12:7–8). Truly, God knows what we need, what we dream of, and most importantly, what is best for us.
Whatever you are seeking today, just come to the Lord and ask! Tell Him what you need or wish for because He is waiting and eager to hear. More than that, His blessings never run dry and He is willing and able to freely give them to you (see Rom. 8:32). All you need to do is ask.
