** Prayer has never been telling God how much you need or know about Him, rather it is a consciousness that He already knows. **

** Prayer has never been about telling God how much you need or know about Him, rather it is the full consciousness that He already knows. **
Why do we have tears?
Beyond the necessary physical purpose of helping to lubricate the eyes - so what we have tears?
Mankind has attempted to answer this for years.
Tears are an indispensable part of human life. Yet some have argued for the reason for such, like, the Spanish King who thought he had a better idea?
King Alfonso X of Castile
surnamed ‘the Learned’,
who apparently had reproached God for needlessly complicating
the system of the heavenly orbs and had stated that things would have turned out better if he, Alfonso, had been present to assist the Creator.’
What audacity! Like King Alfonso, many have never satisfied with the way The Lord God created our world!
First of all, tears make us willing to leave this earthly existence, when our time is up! Once we have travailed this life with all the disappointments and tears - sooner or later we are ready to move on and seek the Heavenly realm beyond.
Otherwise, if life were perfect without any conflict or many problems, who would want to leave this existence?
Yes, your life may be sweet and wonderful now but things will change with trouble and tears will come.
The reasons for tears are many and varied - yet they do come. No matter how well your life is or has been you may feel good - Until Sorrows Come and Tears follow! But why?
When all else fails tears come. This is when you can find people seeking God through a prism of tears. A pronounced difference can be seen by observing two different type people in their prayers. While two people can both be sincere in their prayers, one will wail and cry because of troubles which have come upon them, yet the other person who has learned through tears and trouble has to become more dependent upon God.
Before troubles and tears have come on the first man, his prayers tend to wonder and be poetic or stereotyped, as he begins, with such reverence and lofty things as if a great deal of astronomical information - or such may sound grand or be gratifying to the Almighty. Ending with some form of " World without end, Amen!"
Then when you see a God-seeking person touched by tears in their life prayer has a certain cadence and phraseology in their devotions. Listen to a soul who has been through the furnace of affliction and been bathed in a fountain of tears.
There is a difference, gone are the platitudes and flights of Poesy for prayer is now laying holding of God! Perhaps not as beautiful as before but more directly to the point - because the power of purpose is there!
Prayer has never been telling God how much you need or know about Him, rather it is a consciousness that He already knows. It is the realization of personal dependence upon the God of the Universe and a plea for His intervention or Blessings.
