How do I talk to God?

Yesterday, we talked about the great news that you now have the ability to talk to God and have your life led by the Holy Spirit. You might be wondering, How exactly does one do that? You know…Talk to God? Well, that is called prayer. In its most basic form, prayer is a two-way communication between you and God. In the same way that a child would talk to their parent, we are invited to talk and listen to God.

As a child, the only time I ever prayed was at the dinner table and when I was in trouble. My prayers went something like this, “bless me Jesus, and help me, Jesus.” Certainly, those kinds of prayers are fine and if you are just starting out, this is a great place to start. Just keep in mind that conversation is the backbone to relationship. The more you talk to God, the more you will experience His presence.

Today, read Luke 11:1-13 and ask God to help you see things the way He does.
