BIBLE VERSES

IN JESUS I TRUST

Matthew 1 verse 20-21

When you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of there many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

This is how we should pray to God. We don’t have to speak out loud the words of our prayers. Our communication with God is done with our thoughts. God wants us to have time alone with him with no distractions. We may pray by talking out loud but do it for the right reasons. Not to show people what good Christians we are.

Ther are about 7.7 billion people on earth. If we all had to pray at the same time God would still know what we all wanted. That is absolutely mindblowing. Do not ramble on as Jesus says. Keep to the point and make your prayer simple as God knows what you want before you ask him. You might think to yourself, why should I even bother praying if God Knows my problems and needs. He wants to get to know you. He wants a relationship with you. He wants one on one time with you. He is not asking much, is he?

How do you get to know someone better? By spending quality time with them! So let us spend some quality time with God during our busy daily schedule. I must admit I often forget to pray every day. But what I do is have a short conversation with God during the day.
