The true purpose and need of prayer is found in the prayer of petition. The prayer of Petition is a time of conversation with God to present to Him our personal needs.

While we are a part of a more corporate Christian life including our churches and families, we still live an individualistic spiritual life which requires us as individuals to present ourselves before God in need.
