The obligation to pray is to ask for physical
needs, but the true main purpose is to connect with the Creator. A constant connection with God is also an essential human need – that God should be with a person in all his ways (and all of his ways should be fitting for this connection). The prayer itself is a connection, made through conversation, requests, and praises to God, Who hears the prayer of all and also provides this spiritual need. A main part of prayer is one’s concentration on the greatness of God and the Truth of His Existence, to set these ideas in one’s heart, in all areas of life.
