Why pray?

Indeed, the certainty of my sinfulness makes more clear my need of prayer and its cry for mercy.  It is a counter-intuitive approach to praying.  The more I feel my sin, the more clearly I need to approach my Father in heaven...we are encouraged in this by the promises of God to hear my prayer...He must listen because of my need and His unalterable promise to sinners to hear them.
