When you feeling misunderstood, you often pray. Why is that? Personally, praying makes me feel understood by the most important being—God. It makes me feel like I have someone who understands my truest and purest heart. When I make a mistake, I have someone who understands my guilt and forgives me. When people do not understand my feelings, I know I always have that someone above who does. Prayer gives that assurance to you; prayer allows you to be understood even in the most confusing, misunderstanding and irrational circumstances. God knows you. Through prayer, you discover the value of being understood, and you are also able to better understand God.
When you are feeling alone, prayer provides companionship. No matter how awful my day might be and no matter how lonely I may feel, I know I can always talk to God. Through prayer, you can find companionship. The power of prayer is indescribable. The greatness of prayer is not that your prayer may be answered by that even when unanswered, you still get something beneficial from it. For example, it can help defeat those feelings of loneliness. Through prayer, you know you will never be alone. I cannot think of anything more powerful than an endless amount of faith-filled company.
