Not because you asked

Before we open our mouths to say it, before we even think it, our loving Father already knows. Talking to Him about what’s on our minds helps us feel connected to Him, clarifies our thoughts and feelings, and reaffirms our trust in Him. Our prayers are not about getting God’s attention, convincing Him our needs matter, or begging for His help until He responds to us. Prayer is about remembering that God already knows, already cares, and is already helping us and about consciously experiencing God’s attention and help.

Thank you for always hearing me even before I ask.
