We pray to communicate with God, because communication is an absolutely essential part of maintaining a relationship. And Christianity is about relationship with God, not rules and rituals. We pray because He invited us to ask Him for whatever we want, just like He invited Solomon to ask for whatever he wanted, and hopefully that kind of divine generosity and open-heartedness will call us to ask thoughtfully, like Solomon, with an awareness of how big and powerful and loving God is. We pray because we are and can do nothing without God and we need Him desperately. We pray because it reminds us that we are completely dependent on God like American astronauts are dependent on NASA to keep them alive up in space. We pray because it reminds us of our relative size and position before God.

OK. You have to agree on one of two things. Either your god has no idea what is going to happen in the future, five minutes, five hours, five years from now and is waiting for instructions from you on how to run the universe in which case it makes you his god (or co-god), OR if he knows what you'll ask before you ask it, you're making a fool of yourself and your god for redundantly repeating what he already knows and will do anyway.
