Talking to God doesn’t always feel easy, but if we want to know God more, then we need to know how to talk humbly and honestly with Him.
Here are three things that might encourage you as you draw near to God through prayer.
Pick one or two points that stand out to you, and use them to create a Prayer in your own version.
God isn’t concerned about how eloquent your words sound. He just wants to spend time with you. Some of the best conversations with God happen when you simply share what’s on your mind and then give Him the space to respond.
God, what should I do about….?
God, what do you think about….?
God, would you…?
God, why did this…?
Keep it real
God isn’t going to get mad at you for being honest, so be authentic when you pray. Remember, nothing can separate you from God’s love. So if you’re not sure what to say, tell God that. If you’re frustrated about a situation, say so. He wants you to approach Him with confidence and boldness.
