Read Albert Bogle's new blog post 'Why Pray?' "Admitting that we don’t know everything is part of the discipline of prayer. When we don’t pray we’re saying I’m all right I’ve got it sussed. That's why the most basic prayer is always "Thy will be done." But God knows we will often be baffled in prayer so he gave us the Holy Spirit to intercede for us. He prays for us when we don't know how to pray for ourselves or for anyone else."
