Now that you know you can contact Him through prayer, what are you going to say? Moreover, if He already knows, why waste your time? How can you explain this to Him?
If we turn to The Bible (our good hand that we can hold whenever we need stable guidance and reassurance, praise the Lord for it) many helpful tips can be found in preparing you for the grand speech you dread giving to Him.
DO YOU WANT TO BE NOTIFIED?
When we publish something new, you will be the first one to know about it.
But what do all the passages in The Bible actually have in common when it comes to learning how to communicate with your Father?
- 1. Keep it Genuine.
- 2. Don’t try too hard.
As you can deduce, these two could go hand in hand, so
What Do They Mean?
To put an example, imagine a friend or a colleague comes to you for some help or advice, expecting your complete assistance, believing you capable of providing the best solution, but more than that, showing that he trusts you enough to do so and even looks forward to it!
You can see the longing in his eyes.
Wouldn’t that truly touch your heart?
Now let’s imagine they are just looking for some side-help, not really interested in spending time with you since you are just an asset to their plans.
Well, which of the two scenarios sounds more appealing and more trustworthy?
I would say the first one. Not only that, but I believe God may choose the first one as well and find delight in it.
He would love for you to come to him. And he would love to help you.
But why is sincerity important here?
Because that would mean you two are so close you wouldn’t mind showing yourself in such a vulnerable state to Him. Because you trust him.
Therefore, no need to worry about grand speeches. The Lord simply wishes to spend time with you like a Father enjoys spending time with his children and truly appreciates it when you do so as well. Not because you have to, but because you want to.

I believe this verse expresses the intimacy in prayer quite well.
“But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”Matthew 6:6
