If God is Omniscient, Is it Important to Pray and if so Why?

All the religions of the world today affirm the all-knowing omniscience of God. There is nothing hidden from him. There is nothing that he does not know. In the light of the truth, which every devout believer accepts, the place of prayer becomes clear to you in this manner. Omniscience means that god knows everything. However, it does not mean that he is doing something in connection with what he knows. Also he has millions and billions of human beings to attend to in his creation. He also do have millions and billions of other creatures great and small, whom he has to look after and provide for in every want and requirement. The human individual therefore feels it very necessary to attract God’s attention and draw it towards himself or herself. Thus despite God’s omniscience the human beings prays to attract his special attention towards oneself.
Jesus Christ taught his followers to address God as Abba, which is aromatic, the common man’s spoken language at that time, meant father. The Lord’s Prayer brings it even closer to the individual qualifying it by our. Even while nailed to the cross towards the very end of his physical life, he is said to have addressed God asking god’s forgiveness for his tormentors with the words, father forgive them for they know not what they do. It is the usual practice all over the world to use the universal term father, no matter in what language you are saying it, to indicate the one who brought you into being. Therefore, one who is the immediate cause of your coming into being, by birth is naturally father. The entire universe has been brought into being by God. Therefore God is the father of entire universe and is addressed as such. The best form of prayer is to glorify god and sing paeans of prayer for his divinity.  To pray is to glorify God’s grandeur, omniscience, omnipresence, omnipotent, infinite love , compassion and His concern for all his creation including even the tiniest part of it. So prayer must be simple and for the well being of all the beings.
