Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. – Phil 4:6
Do you ever struggle to pray? Maybe you feel really awkward talking out loud to God. Perhaps you try to pray, but just don’t know what to say. There can be lots of reasons why prayer might feel unnatural to you.
However, today’s Bible verse says that we are to pray about everything. We aren’t to worry, stress out or fear the things we face in life, we are to pray about them instead. If we’re to pray about everything, how do we make prayer seem easier?
One of the best ways to make prayer easier is to remember that when you pray, it’s just like you’re speaking to a friend. You can be real with God, talk to Him and tell Him how you feel about things going on around you. You can be honest and say I’m hurting or I need help. The great thing about God is that He wants to hear from you.

Today, take some time out of your busy day and spend it in prayer. Let God know your fears, worries, and let Him speak to you. You’ll never regret spending time in prayer with God.
