    114. 114. When should we pray?Before we leave this point, someone wrote about when not want to pray. If we don’t love anyone and don’t want anyone to love us ... don’t pray. If we are completely and utterly sinless and we can handle the world all by ourselves ... don’t pray. If we don’t need any guidance in the world of darkness or in times of trouble and trial ... don’t pray. If we have all the wisdom we need to meet each of life’s many changes, and if we have the power to direct our own steps ... don’t pray. If we don’t need any help keeping our families safe, sound, well, fed, clothed, sheltered, and provided for in all the ways God expects folks to provide for their own ... don’t pray. If we can rely on our own strength to control our futures, and we can make the forces of nature work to our advantage, and we can manufacture the air we breathe and keep the earth spinning and the sun shining ... don’t pray. Otherwise... We ought to get down on our knees and pray! http://www.asiteforthelord.com/
