God is actually there. When we look around us and see all that has been created, we know that there is a God. In the past, (and sadly in the future) others have foolishly pretended that God did not exist. They would not acknowledge Him as Creator or give thanks to Him for all that He created. As a result, the Bible says, "their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened."

We don't want anything like this to happen to us! This is an excellent reason to pray. We are to pray and give thanks to God for who He is and for all that He has done. If you don't pray already, perhaps a good way to start would be to pray and thank God when you notice something in nature that reminds you of who He is and what He has created.
