How To Pray-Part 1 

June 1, 2015


There is a longing in every human heart to communicate with a higher being. When a person is trying to communicate with a higher being, they think that if they can connect they feel safe and they feel like someone is watching over them. Deep inside of every person on this earth, no matter what country, no matter what language they speak, they want to be secure, they want to be loved, and they want to be accepted.  Many people who pray are praying meaningless words. They will tell you that when they pray to some god out there somewhere it is like their prayers do not get any further than the ceilings.  Why?  Because they do not reach past the ceiling.  You see, there is only one way to pray to One true God whose name is Jehovah, and it is through the Son of God, His name is Jesus and by the Holy Spirit. 

My friend, prayer is not just getting something or avoiding something, it is the highest privilege of mankind to simply talk with God.  Too often we rush through a long list of requests and we beg God for a lot of things. We beg Him to change things for us and then we say, “Amen!”

Then we get up and walk off, never sitting there to listen to Him talk back to us, so that we know His mind and His will.  My friend, sit before God today and ask Him to speak to you and listen to what He has to say.
