Does God need your prayers? This is a question I placed recently to some Christian friends of mine. The answer I received was interesting, 'As Christians', they claimed 'we know that "God does not need our prayer but he needs us to pray to him"
'. 'Why' I asked, '"Because it is one of his requirements"
' they reply. So as God's creation you are required to pray to him according to Christianity.
Also, the Christian religion teach that the reason why God needs us to pray to him is because he created man to have fellowship or be together with him. However, because Adam and Eve broke that togetherness by their so called sin, God then wants, but in my view, he needs, to resume that fellowship.
Why do I say God "needs" to resume that togetherness? Because of the extremity God went through by sending his "only son"
, Jesus, to die on a cross for that purpose. That's the action of one who is very desperate for companionship or should I say "fellowship".
