Today we are discussing chapter 3 of my book, Giving God Your Whole Heart. In chapter 3 we talk about prayer. Some people are amazing prayer warriors and consistently meet the Lord in prayer. But there are many people who hesitate when it comes to prayer. At times we might feel as though we are bothering God, because our troubles seem trivial in comparison to larger problems others are facing. But one important thing to remember is that God cares. God cares about you, and God cares about the things you are going through. He will never turn you away when you meet Him in prayer.
I like to keep a list of people and issues to pray about. This helps me to pray for them often and not forget something or someone. I have found that spending time with God first thing in the morning is the best way to start the day. But I also talk to the Lord all throughout the day. I also often pray when I am in bed and trying to sleep. This helps me to end my day with the Lord and gives me contentment as I drift off to sleep. And I also like to pray while I am driving, since I have a long commute. Try to find different times and methods that work best for you. God will always be there, ready to listen!
