Why Pray?


I am puzzled by Jesus’ statement, “Ye have not, because ye ask not.” When we are most in need, or at least feel ourselves to be, why is it that that is when God seems most silent? We pray, we ask, we beg, we grovel. Silence. It perplexes me. What did Jesus mean? Is God in the habit of not answering prayer? Does He care?

These are questions that really bother me.
