Prayer is your Chance to have a Conversation with God
When people think of prayer, they automatically think of saying prayers they learned growing up in Church. I was born into the Catholic faith, so I was taught the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be. There were many other prayers I was taught, but those were the top three.
You are also taught to pray for the sick, the poor, the deceased and for anyone who may need a prayer. You learn to pray to God to forgive you for any sins you may have made or any wrong doing you have done.
Some people feel that you should only pray for other people and not yourself. You should not pray for material things, because that is wrong. Many people believe in many different reasons for prayer, it all depends on how you were brought up.
No matter what you believe in when it comes to prayer or religion, believe this prayer is a chance to have a conversation with God! Take the chance to talk with him; he is waiting to hear from you. God does not judge contrary to what some people want you to believe. He does not care about your color, gender, height, weight, disabilities or who you love.
What he cares about is your well-being and the relationship he has with you! God wants you to leave your burdens with him, he wants to take away all of your sorrow and pain. Some people feel that because of their actions and the way they behave or the wrong they have done in their lives that God will be mad at you and turn his back on you. For some they are actually taught this. That is far from the truth.
He may be sad for a minute, but the God I know will never turn his back on his children. He is waiting for you to welcome him back into your life. He is waiting for you with open arms. He wants you to have a conversation with him.
Prayer is your chance to have a conversation with God. This is your chance to tell him your worries, your fears, your joys. To ask him for help with anything that is burdening you! Tell him whatever is on your mind, he is listening without judgment.
It’s your chance to thank him for all that you have your life, the air you breathe, the clothes on your back and the soles on your feet. It’s your time to thank him for all who enter in your life whether positive or negative. For the lessons you learned and for the lessons you would like to learn.
Prayer is your chance to have a conversation with God, what conversation would you like to have with him? He is listening and waiting for you with open arms!
