When we pray, God has called us into relationship and he desires to communicate with us. He is waiting for us. We do not need the right formula or words to attract his attention.
The first part of relational prayer is: Acknowledge.
Whenever you meet with a friend you can't help but share your highs and lows. You share openly and honestly with your friend.
That is what we need to do with God. We ned to acknowledge what is in our hearts and our minds.
“Some of our struggles in prayer stem from not sharing the real stuff with God.”
