Talk to God
If you want to get to know someone, you could read about them. But you might also want to talk to them. God wants to have a relationship with you – one that is real and one that is personal. The Bible is full of invitations for you to talk to God. You don’t have to pick up a phone, or send an e-mail...you can talk to the very creator of the universe right now where you are.
Prayer is simply talking to God. You don’t have to use big words or flowery language. You don’t have to know fancy terms. You can talk to God just like you would talk to any friend. In fact, as a Christian, God is your Father and your Friend!
In Mark 1:35, we read about Jesus himself praying to the Father. Imagine that! If Jesus needed to pray, how much more do we need to talk to God? So, how do you do it?
Prayer is just talking to God. It’s a two- way, direct-connect, with no long distance charges. It’s a child talking to a father, and the ultimate phone-a-friend. Read the sidebar on the right side of the next page to guide you.
