Prayer is the very vital tool to reach the Heavenly Father. If people realized how important prayer was, they would pray more often. God is able to heal us, help us with our finances, help us with Depression, or any fiery dart Satan sends our way. God can answer any prayer, but he is waiting on us to ask.
Learn to pray to the Father with a sincere and humble heart. Pray to him everyday. Pray often —several times a day. Pray without ceasing, which means continually. You can pray to God when you are at home —when you are at the store —when you are at work. A person doesn’t always need to close their eyes to pray.
If you want a closer relationship with the Father then first, repent of any un-confessed sin and examine your heart. Get rid of things in your life that affect your spiritual growth. Praise God during the times when you are at your highest and feel blessed, and worship him when you are at your lowest. Pray and ask God to lead and direct your steps and your actions in your everyday life.
You will never be sorry to be a child of God. God will stick closer to you than a brother and will always be there when you need him. You don’t have to make an appointment to see him. You don’t have to look for him at any time, for he is always there. when you need him. Just find a place by yourself and seek God with your whole heart. Call upon him and he will hear you.
Now if you pray to God for things that he knows will interfere with your spiritual growth such as: asking for money or fame, he may chose not to answer those prayers. Always remember God knows what is best for you and he is in control. He loves you and only wants the best for you. Keep in mind, sometimes people go through sickness and trials, but it helps us to come out a stronger Christian.
