GOD KNOWS While sitting on the mountain side, teaching about praying, Jesus discourages repeating the same words continuously, as people do who do not know God, because “YOUR FATHER KNOWS WHAT YOU NEED BEFORE YOU ASK” [Mt 6:8 CE]. Then Jesus goes on to teach us how to pray with simple statements, once a day. Although God knows what we need, we are expected to ask. Do you pray the way Jesus teaches?
