Greetings to you and to your family! I hope you are all healthy and safe.
This month, I would like to talk to you about one of my favorite things to do. I LOVE to pray! I love spending time telling God about my day, my problems, and my desires. I also love praising him for all that he has done for me. He is always there to listen and to talk back. DO YOU LIKE TO PRAY?
Prayer isn’t just something that we do before we start activities or eat a meal. We pray to build a relationship with God and to also change our hearts. Just like spending time with our friends we need to spend time with our Savior. Sometimes people tell us that we can only pray for certain things but God wants us to come to him about EVERYTHING! I pray when I’m having a bad day, when I’m really happy, when I’m scared, when I’m feeling silly, and when I’m thankful. WHEN DO YOU PRAY?
Did you know that God also answers prayers? Sometimes it’s hard for us to hear his answers because we expect him to answer in a voice that we can hear with our ears. But he answers us through the Bible, through other people, and even through situations. When I’m worried, sometimes I read a special Bible verse that makes me feel better. I know that God was speaking to me. Another time, I was having a problem and didn’t know what to do and then God sent one of my friends to help me out. Colossians 4:2 says “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Always listen for God’s voice and he will be there to answer you. I will especially be praying for your heart to always be ready to hear God’s voice so that he may speak to you. It’s sometimes hard to hear him.
One thing to remember is that God doesn’t always answer our prayers with a “Yes”. Sometimes he says “I have something even better for you!” Continue to trust him no matter what.
I have been praying for you ever since you entered my life. I thank God for you and your family, I thank God for your heart and then I ask him to take care of you. I also ask for him to provide for your future and always keep you close to his heart. HOW DO YOU PRAY?
Tonight, I will be especially praying for you to always talk to God about everything in your life. He is always listening and always caring. Please pray the same for me!
