As you read the Bible, you are constantly encountering people who prayed. Elijah, Elisha, Paul, Peter… you, too, should pray. What is praying? Praying is not the repetition of memorized words, but the personal conversation with your Creator.

“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14; NIV)

If it matters to you, then it matters to God, too. And nothing is too small and nothing is too big for you to discuss with God. And you should discuss everything with Him because He cares for you.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

Don’t doubt that God will help you better than you could have even imagined. • God wants to give you immeasurably more than you can ask or imagine

“But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.” (James 1:6-8; NIV)

Say (!) this: Thank You, my God, that You hear me and help me.
