Why pray?

This weekend I’ll be giving a talk on the parable of the Unjust Judge (Luke 18:1-8) as a part of a conference that Shannon and I are doing together on “God Behaving Badly in Jesus’ Parables.”  At the beginning of the talk I’m going to ask them “Why pray?”  How would you answer that question (in one sentence)?  I’d love to get some comments so that I can use some of your answers this weekend.  (Neither the dog or the boy are related to me–just a Google image capture.  I know the dog has his eyes closed, but God would probably be more open to responding to a canine prayer if he could get his paws in the proper position.)
