" Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it(B) with thanksgiving...." Col 4

Acts 17:25
nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself-gives to all mankind life and breath and everything.

"God created us, according to Isaiah 43:7, for his glory. Which we now see means that he created the universe so that persons created in his image would look to him to satisfy all their wants and needs so that they would get the joy and God would get the glory. When we express this looking to God, we call it prayer."--John Piper
