How to Pray

You can just talk to Jesus like you would talk to a best friend.  If you have asked Him to be your Savior, He is in your life forever.  He is close as your breath.  Tell him whatever is on your mind. Ask him for help for yourself and others, ask his forgiveness when you mess up, and remember to thank him for answered prayer and for all he does. As you go along, you can begin to pray about the bible passages you read. Whatever comes to mind, you can talk it over with Jesus. Another practice is to write out your prayers. I fold my binder paper pages in half lengthwise. I write down whatever I ask Jesus, I write things I feel he is nudging me to do (so I won’t forget) and also write down insights I feel he is giving me into certain situations. Later I go back to thank him for the prayers he has answered, to record things I have finished and so on. Writing down prayers helps people like me whose minds flit like butterflies from one thing to another–it helps me focus and concentrate. However, going back and seeing how God has answered past prayers is a great source of joy and thanksgiving.  The important thing is just to start.  When you are moving, God will steer.
