Prayer is not to be just a list of requests read off to God. The primary function of prayer is to build a relationship with God, to get to know Him and His will better. From an example of Abram, we learn principles of prayer as conversation, two-way communication. As you get to know God and His will better, you will see more and more of your requests answered.
