Weekly Devotion: Why Bother Praying?

Up in heaven, there is a mighty legion of angels, sitting at switchboards, answering prayers. The angels hear a prayer, evaluate its intensity, and respond accordingly. The really BIG prayers go up to the ladder for God to handle.

Hmm. Is that how prayer works? Not sure about that. Here’s another thought:

God is all-powerful and all-knowing, so the second we say, “Dear God…” God is listening, taking notes. For every single request, God takes out a coin and flips it. Sometimes God helps, and sometimes God doesn’t.

No, I don’t think that’s it either.
