Prayer is the breath of Christian life. It is real communication to our maker. It doesn’t have to take a particular form. When we pray, we should do that wholeheartedly and not think about if our prayers would be answered or not.
Sometimes when we speak to God, doubt creeps in. Thoughts like: “what if I am asking for too much?”,
“will God hear me? This person died from this same sickness”,
“will God forgive my past sins and listen to me?” And a thousand more questions.
First of all, let us pray with faith and believe God for what we are praying. I always start my prayers with worship and thanks. Thinking of what He has done for you can set your heart right.
Sometimes our answers come in subtle ways and other times it’s direct. Never the less prayer takes this burden away from you and you have peace of mind after talking to God. It’s like reconciling with your best friend and catching up on everything you’ve missed.
We should talk about our day, plans, movement, career, challenges, etc, lierally everything because HE listens
Our aim of Prayer shouldn’t be getting something from God but getting to Him.
1 John 5:14 ~ This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
Jeremiah 29:12 ~ Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
Philippians 4:6 ~ Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
