• God already knows our needs.
“When you pray, don’t babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again. 8Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him.” (Matthew 6:7-8)

• God already knows everything.
“Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything.” (1 John 3:20)
“You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord.” (Psalm 139:4)

• God doesn’t need our prayers.
He replied, “If they kept quiet, the stones along the road would burst into cheers.!” (Luke 19:40)

• God already loves us completely.
“God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” (Romans 5:8)
“Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.” (Romans 8:32-34)
“Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” (Romans 8:35-37)

• Prayer is not how we get our will done in heaven. Prayer is one of the ways that God does His will on earth.
“You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.” (John 15:16)
