What comes to your mind when you think about prayer? I used to think that it was really serious, was only for really holy people and involved reciting words from a book. So what is prayer really?

It’s quite simple. Whatever your experience with it may be, here are some things that are true for me regarding prayer.

It is conversation

Some may think that praying is bringing a long list of demands to God. Other may think it’s only a grovel session where you admit how small and worthless you and hope that God doesn’t strike you. This could not be further from the truth. Rather, it is a conversation between friends. It’s a conversation between you and God where you are able to be completely open and honest. Prayer could be one of the most amazing aspects of our life if we understand what prayer really is.

Telling God how you are feeling and what you are going through is a great way to unload. Instead, many of us turn to our friends. The big difference is that our friends can give us advice from their perspective while God can give us advice and wisdom from a heavenly perspective.

It changes things

I don’t know exactly how it works except that it does. When we pray, things begin to change. What I have found in my life is that when I pray, either the circumstance changes or I change. Either way, something changes when I pray.

Have you given much thought to having a conversation with God? He created you and loves you and wants to talk to you through prayer.
