Why Do We Pray ?

I wounder why do people do pray and what makes we want to pray but believe it or not, I think people pray so God won't crush them like bugs. What are your opinion.

You are wrong!!! 

Christianity is a personal relationship with God like that of a man and his wife.  You marry your wife to relate with her intimately and not use her as your house help.  Otherwise you could have gotten one out there.

Prayer is 24/7.  Always in tune with God as a friend and father i.e always tune to heaven FM as God is always transmitting from His station!

I pray as the way I communicate with God since I believe that it is in the mind of God to answer prayer.

Mt 26:41

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

We pray because we do not want to fall in temptation.

Mt 26:53

Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?

We pray because we need our needs met, like someone said earlier

Lk 6:12

And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.

Note: Jesus could not have been afraid of being "crushed like a bug." There's such a thing as fellowship with God.

Lk 10:2

Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

We pray for lost souls.

Lk 18:1

18:1 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

We have been instructed to pray.

Lk 21:36

36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

KJV

I don't think I need to explain the last one. Please note that by We I mean Christians.

The devil sees the big picture that you don't see. And maybe those people haven't been praying right.

We pray to have our needs met! simple.

If you have not been praying I challenge you to start doing so now, and you will see changes in your life.

Correct! People pray out of fear.

I remember when i was little after reading the O.T we'll be so scared of punishment than we'll have no option than to fear god. What kind of diety instills fear in the minds of followers?
