When you pray, what is your primary objective? Is it to get something from God or to spend time with Him? If you utilize prayer simply as a way to give God a checklist and you never spend the time fellowshipping with Him, then you've missed out on the entire purpose of speaking to your heavenly Father.
In A Pattern for Prayer, Dr. Stanley takes a close look at the true purpose of prayer. Once you create a healthy pattern of talking to God, you will begin to see how He has provided for your needs and continually purifies your heart. And do you know what will happen? Your prayer life will be transformed and will take on a powerful, new meaning.
