Jesus teaches His disciples to pray the Our Father (CCC 2761-2865) Before He does, he tells them not to pray like the pagans who multiple words in hope of flattering the gods. In other words, they are praying to change the mind of these gods. Jesus reminds them that their heavenly Father already knows what they need. In other words, our prayers are not meant to change God but to change ourselves. Genuine prayer makes us different people.
