What is prayer?
We all pray. Prayer is simply talking to God about the things you are thinking about. If you are concerned, worried or consumed with something in your mind. Just say to God, "Help".
We think we don't know how to pray, but we do. Just talk to God about what's on your heart. Our whole being seeks God. We yearn for peace and safety.
Just pause- close your eyes and verbalize your thoughts to God. God desires communication with you. He loves you - He delights in you!
Are you consumed with fear? Bring that fear to God in your thought life. Confess it to Him. Drop it at the foot of the cross. God will give you the peace of God. Consuming fear is not from God. Pray. Verbalize it to God and He will give you peace.
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
but of power, and of love,
and of a sound mind.”
2 Timothy 1:7
God does not want us walking around in fear! Write that scripture down. Memorize it.
Every time that fear comes back, quote that scripture.
Do the same thing with worry, doubts, wrong feelings, etc. Bring them to God! Lay them at the foot of the cross! God will give you His peace.
Just verbalize your thoughts to the Lord. He will help you! He will give you peace! That's prayer! Be sure and thank Him, too! God loves you.
May the Lord Bless & Keep you!
