TALKING TO GOD.
When you learn to pray remember you don't need fancy words, or a script of what to say. God responds to faith-filled prayers from the heart. The cry of the broken, joy-filled expressions of thanks, requests for miracles or our simply our daily needs are all heard. We can have confidence God hears us, knows what we need and works for good.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. 1 John 5:14-15
There is no set time of day, place or method. God is listening 24/7. We constantly have access to heaven through Jesus Christ. Never be scared or hesitant to pray. God will not be shocked or too busy. He cares for you more than anyone else.
PRAYER CHANGES THINGS.
Pray with faith. Believe what God says and believe you will receive what you ask. Jesus said you only need a mustard seed of faith. Start small if you need to, remember the miracles in the Bible, remember any answered prayer you've seen or experienced. Apply these to what you are praying about, stir up your spirit. The God who created the universe has promised to hear and answer you.
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24
Some prayers may be answered immediately, others take time. Be unwavering and persistent. Believe that you have received what you asked. See it. Know it. Trust in the almighty God who is able to bring it to pass.
LEARN HOW TO PRAY.
Even the disciples wanted to learn to pray. Jesus answered them simply, guiding them into relationship with their Father in heaven. Through Christ we approach God as His children, with love and respect. We pray for His will to be done on earth, for the broken pieces to be restored and for good to triumph over evil. We ask for what we need, God is glad to be our source and provider. We ask forgiveness for where we have been disobedient to His commands and we offer that same forgiveness to those around us. We ask for both provision and protection to keep us walking in His will.
“Father, may your name be kept holy.
May your Kingdom come soon.
Give us each day the food we need,
forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
And don’t let us yield to temptation.”
The Bible encourages us to remember and be thankful for our blessings. By praying we remember that God is good and a grateful spirit is built within ourselves.
When you are worried, pray for peace. When you are sick, gather together with others and pray together for healing.
You can talk to God at all times and in all circumstances. There's no limit. He is always there for you.
