Speak to God openly and plainly from the heart.

True repentance is sweet. It brings consolation. It feels right; you feel good inside when you pour your heart out to God. At some point, in your prayer time, the Lord will invite you to do something different in prayer. The time for repentance will end during prayer.

The Lord wants to hear us speak about other things. He wants to hear our hopes and dreams. He wants to hear us rejoicing.
