Synopsis

Why talk to God? Because God loves us to talk to him and there’s so much to talk about. If we watch the different postures that people adopted in Scripture when they prayed, we shall begin to get some idea of all the wealth that there is in prayer: all the different attitudes it can express, all the different things that God invites us to come and share with him and he with us. Prayer is infinitely more than just asking God for things.

Our Lord taught his disciples, not just a pattern to repeat in parrot fashion, but a pattern of praying that gets the most important things in life first, so that by constant habit we might begin to get our sense of proportion right. We pray to a God who is both all wise and all loving, but prayer isn’t a refined form of twisting God’s arm to get something from him. Neither is it to give him any information. However, we must persist, and the urgency, the necessity with which we regard the thing for which we are asking, is an exceedingly important point in prayer.

Why should I praise the Lord? Because he commands me to. Why should I worship him? Well, surely because I can’t help it. Praise and worship are twin topics. Worship means more than just bowing down and acknowledging the Lord’s authority. It will mean enjoying God, praising God, and in the end so admiring God in Christ that one’s spirit is overawed and one wants to bow down in recognition of the merit and the glory of Christ. However, if I want to worship God, I shall have to find out what God likes. When I come to offer spiritual sacrifices to God, they’ve obviously got to be acceptable to him.
