Why Pray? To Remember How Much We Need God

“Each of us should form the habit from his youth up to pray daily for all his needs.  We do this not because God needs to be made aware of our needs, but to impress upon us our dependence upon him.” – Martin Luther, quoted in Martin Luther: A Guided Tour of His Life and Thought by Stephen J. Nichols (page 159).  It’s a wonderful little book telling of Luther’s life and many contributions to the church in the Reformation.  I highly recommend it even for the person casually interested in Luther.
