Prayer is an intimate conversation with God.
Because he already lives in us, we don’t need to pray out loud. God doesn’t need us to utter words, he knows our minds.
Prayer is not the repetition of religious text. It is a moment of intimacy with God to express our love, gratitude and share our struggles to ask for guidance.
We chat with God in our own way.
I do it all the time. It doesn’t matter where I am or what I’m doing. It doesn’t have to be in a quiet place. I don’t move into a position or fold my hands. All I do is open my heart to God.
It is the safest and most powerful way of opening up.
It is therapeutical, because it helps us identify what’s troubling us. Yet God doesn’t need us to tell him our troubles – he knows.
He also does’t need to be reminded of what we need – he knows and is already taking care of us in his own perfect time and way. We do what we can, then rest. God is in control.
Prayer is a wonderful way to consciously connect with him and experience the peaceful hope that this connection fills us with.
Although he already knows everything, he still wants to hear from us through our prayers, because he knows we need this.
God listens. God knows.
And he will gives us more than what we ask or need.
