"...whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."
1 Corinthians 10:31 ESV
This includes prayer. Quite often, we selfishly think of ourselves during prayer, and we would pray in accordance to what we want or what we think should happen.
Let us remain humble before the Almighty and seek to pray, with the mindset, to glorify Him.
"To bring glory to Jesus Christ" should be the main theme and contention of our prayers to which many other reasons for prayer hinge off. This should be our heart's cry. After all, we were created to glorify our Creator.
Let us examine ourselves and test the reason as to why we pray.
I would encourage you to search through the prayers in the bible, and see how they glorify the Lord.
