Purpose of Prayer

The fundamental purpose of prayer, including the prayer of petition, is not to get something from God, or to change God, but to change ourselves. When we have changed, God can give us everything we want, because our will will be one with his, and we will want only what he wants.
(Father Thomas Keating, Heart of the World, p. 63)
