We’ve talked a lot this week about reading your Bible this new year and praising God. Another good habit to develop is prayer.
You might feel a little intimidated when it comes to praying to God. It can be easy to wonder what to say or how to say things. The good news is that God loves you. He wants to hear from you. So anything you say to Him, He will be excited to hear.
So instead of getting worried about whether you have all the right things to say, decide to just talk to God. Don’t worry about it being right or wrong, just act like you’re talking to a friend. Tell Him your concerns. Let Him know you love Him. Find things to thank Him for.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. – 1 John 5:14 (NIV)
God wants to hear from you. He loves you, so don’t be afraid to go to Him and begin praying. From the small things to the big ones, God loves you, and He hears you when you pray!
