"SHOULD WE PRAY FOR THINGS WE WANT TO HAPPEN? WON'T GOD DO WHAT HE'S GOING TO DO AND NOT CHANGE HIS MIND ANYWAY? "

Yes my dear friend, we should pray.

God already knows what He will do. (Mathewt. 6:8)

He also knows how much and how earnestly you will pray. (1 John 3:20)

God may do something you like whether you pray for it or not. (Exodus 33:19)

He may not do it no matter how much you pray. (James 4:3)

However, He may sometimes do something if you pray and not do it if you don't. (James 4:2)

You can't make Him do it.

Rather, He has chosen certain things to happen if you pray. (1 John 5:14)

God knows which things He will do if you pray and which things He will not do no matter how much you pray.

You don't.

So never cease praying! God really wants to hear you!
